Lifetime Cancels 'America's Most Wanted', Develops New Show With John Walsh


Though Lifetime has decided not to renew the veteran reality series, the show's host will likely stay on the network with 'John Walsh Investigates'.

"America's Most Wanted" has been canceled for the second times. Lifetime, which picked up the show after FOX pulled the plug on it in 2011, has decided not to order a new season of the crime-fighting series.

The cancellation couldn't be considered as a surprise since the reality show couldn't gain big ratings for Lifetime, averaging just 807,000 viewers in its latest season. The show has not aired any new episode since October 2012.

Lifetime, however, may maintain its business relationship with "America's Most Wanted" host John Walsh. According to TV Guide, the network is developing a pilot tentatively titled "John Walsh Investigates", which "would take a different approach to Walsh's ongoing crime fighting and victims' advocacy work."

"America's Most Wanted" had aired on FOX for 23 years before the network axed it in 2011. Lifetime then picked up the show, airing 44 new episodes of it. Walsh's production company and Twentieth Television which distributes the show reportedly haven't decided whether or not they will seek a new home for the reality series.
