I made a thread about it but last year Comcast/Xfinity, one of the largest cable and internet providers in the country, apparently dropped the ID channel from its system.
I know I keep making excuses but this is possibly another reason that despite the amazing capture of Luis Frias there wasn't even more direct capture success in season 1 as that is a loss of literally millions of subscribers.
(I even checked what cable company is in Landover Maryland, where Lamont Stephenson was caught indirectly and apparently Comcast/Xfinity is one of them. I can't help but wonder what if and if Natina Kiah would still be alive had a potential Comcast viewer from the area been watching the ID channel the night they profiled Stephenson. I know it sounds a bit far fetched and dramatic of me but still possible imo).
The whole point of moving to ID was it was a larger and more popular crime channel than HLN only for this to happen so this is frustrating.
We can only hope Comcast puts ID back for season 2 (in fairness they dropped a lot of channels but still).

In Pursuit has been confirmed for Season 2!!!
Once again in 2020 for 12 episodes so In Pursuit like The Hunt is once again a yearly show when we need a show that runs more often but at least we have it coming back.
Also, the article says Season 2 will be produced by Jupiter Entertainment, so apparently John Walsh and company decided to part ways with Zero Point Zero. I'm very disappointed in this as I made friends with people at ZPZ and this sucks for them since I at least felt they did an excellent job most importantly helping me get Michael Sanchez's family's story/the manhunt for Ricardo Villanueva-Cordova on the air (also, not that important in the grand scheme of things as getting justice is, but at the moment I have not forged relationships with anyone at Jupiter, so I probably won't be as good at revealing things from sources as I have in the past).
Jupiter does have a lot of experience with true crime shows though according to their website including producing Homicide Hunter which was one of ID channel's most popular shows.
