'America's Most Wanted' to return on cable Dec. 2

November 2nd, 2011 in News

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 at 9 p.m. Eastern time. 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.
