America’s Most Wanted‘s new lease on life at Lifetime is coming to an end. Lifetime has opted not to pick up additional episodes of John Walsh’s crime-fighting series. The cancellation was mostly a formality since the last new episode of AMW aired five and a half months ago. It drew a paltry 800,000 viewers. Lifetime is staying in business with Walsh, developing a pilot with him. According to TVGuide, which first reported on the cancellation, the new project is tentatively titled John Walsh Investigates and takes a different approach to Walsh’s ongoing crime fighting and victims’ advocacy work. Lifetime stepped in after Fox cancelled AMW as a regular series in 2011 after 24 seasons (The broadcast network still airs quarterly specials.) Lifetime picked up 24 episodes, followed by an order for another 20 episodes. AMW has helped in the capture 1,202 fugitives worldwide.
