The show claims it has helped capture more than 1,100 fugitives in the United States and 30 other countries since it began in 1988.
The show ran for 44 episodes on Lifetime after a 24-year run on the Fox network. The show was started by John Walsh, an advocate for crime victims after his son Adam was abducted in 1981.
New Show Proposed?
Fox once planned to cancel it, but kept the show going after an outpouring of support from fans. Citing a lack of profitability, the network finally cancelled AMW in 2011 and Lifetime picked it up.
Reportedly, Lifetime is in talks with Walsh to create a pilot for a new show, "John Walsh Investigates."
There is also the possibility that the producers of the show may once again try to find another network home.
