The original America’s Most Wanted TV series ran for 24 seasons on FOX before being dropped back in 2011. It was picked up by Lifetime but was ultimately cancelled there. Now, it’s back on FOX but, will it stay? Will America’s Most Wanted be cancelled or renewed for season 27? Stay tuned.
A revival of the long-running fugitive docu-series, this version of America’s Most Wanted is hosted by journalist Elizabeth Vargas. Returning at a time when technology looms large in the public consciousness, Vargas breaks down some of the toughest cases from the show’s new headquarters and consults with a team of experts representing law enforcement units such as the FBI and U.S. Marshals. Deploying a myriad of advanced, modern-day developments in technology over the last several years, the series builds on its original format. Crimes are reenacted by utilizing new state-of-the-art crime-fighting technology that takes the audience hot-on-the-trail of suspects.
