Lifetime has acquired America's Most Wanted for its 25th season, the network announced Tuesday.

This summer, Fox announced it was dropping America's Most Wanted — which has captured more than 1,100 fugitives, including 17 on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted List — as a regular series. Instead, the network would air quarterly two-hour specials. 

The show is expected to premiere on Lifetime later this year.

"America's Most Wanted is a seminal program that provides a very valuable service to both viewers and law enforcement agencies," President and General Manager of Lifetime Networks Nancy Dubuc said.  "For more than two decades John Walsh has been leading the fight against crime and it's an honor to partner with him on bringing back this important show."
