NEW YORK (AP) — Bad guys, look out! John Walsh will be back on the air next month with weekly editions of “America’s Most Wanted.”
The Lifetime cable TV network announced Tuesday the crime-fighting series will return for its 25th season on Dec. 2. Lifetime has ordered 20 weekly hour-long episodes.
Walsh remains the host of the criminal roundup, which since 1988 has helped bring almost 1,200 fugitives to justice.
Until June, “America’s Most Wanted” had been a fixture on the Fox network. But last spring Fox announced it was axing the series because of high production costs.
Walsh calls his show “the court of last resort” in its mission to put criminals behind bars.
Walsh’s 6-year-old son, Adam, was kidnapped and killed in 1981.
