TVLine Article: America’s Most Needed Returns, NBCSN Shutting Down, and Extra
America’s Most Wanted Criminals should be more careful as a revised version of the legendary real crime program is due out on Fox this March.
Journalist Elizabeth Vargas will lead the new iteration for John Walsh, which will use technologically advanced tools and the power of social media to catch criminals.
“Catching dangerous refugees, bringing justice to victims and finding missing children is my life’s work,” Walsh said in a statement. “I’m so excited to hear America’s Most Wanted is back, and I support its return. God bless.”
America’s Most Wanted aired on Fox for 25 seasons until it was canceled in 2011. Lifetime revived the show the same year before it gave the ax in 2013.
