In Pursuit with John Walsh has been officially confirmed for Season 2!!!
As a result, I figured it was time to do our tradition of making a thread before the season where we share anything we know details spoilers etc....
From the article it says the show will debut in 2020 and will be produced by Jupiter Entertainment, meaning Zero Point Zero is no longer the production company. (I will always support the show because of the importance of the mission, but I'm sorry for my friends at ZPZ- I wish them good luck and can never thank them enough for helping get Michael Sanchez's family's story aka the manhunt for Ricardo Villanueva-Cordova on the air).
The good news is I looked at their website and Jupiter has a lot of experience with true crime shows- including ID channel's arguably most popular show in Homicide Hunter.
I at the moment have not forged relationships with anyone at Jupiter yet so sharing details will for the time being probably be a bigger challenge. But if I do find anything out as always to not spoil anything- to not alert a fugitive unnecessarily- I will only mention the fugitive by name if there are official articles spoiling it anyway- otherwise if I figure something out through my own research I'll give a brief/general/purposely vague but detailed enough description of what some cases will be about.
Anyway here's the article about the show's return:

A few things I wanted add-
-I don't know the reason for why John Walsh and company seemed to choose to change production companies considering a very successful season 1. This is only speculation on my part but me and HeadMarshal feel that perhaps it was ID channel wanting him to use their guys, since Jupiter produces a lot of shows for ID and has a history/relationship with them.
There was some article a few months ago about two crime shows filming a story on U.S. Marshals Top 15 Lester Eubanks (a man who escaped an Ohio prison in the 70's while serving a life sentence for the rape and murder of a young girl), so logic would say that one of those shows is probably In Pursuit since it's really currently the only crime show that does fugitive cases.

HeadMarshal brought this up again but last season there was some sort of a contract dispute between ID channel and Comcast/Xfinity, meaning perhaps millions of potential subscribers didn't get to see In Pursuit for Season 1 (which still amazingly had great ratings anyway).
I found an article saying they renewed a long-term contract copyrighted 2019 but I still see some people complaining they're not getting ID channel. I don't know if it just takes some time to put back or the article is outdated or it depends on what package you have or what but if anyone can clarify I'd appreciate it.
I hope this issue is resolved because it could literally mean at least one extra direct capture if not more if the channel is put back on regularly.

I wonder if by changing production companies it means In Pursuit’s format will change or stay the same.
Highest Priority Case: Murder Victim, Alexandra (Alex) Anaya Missing Person: Ashley Summers Most Wanted #5: Frantz Dieudonne Most Wanted #4: Barrett Preston Busschau Most Wanted #3: FBI Top Ten Fugitive, Bhadreshkumar Patel Most Wanted #2: FBI Top Ten Fugitive, Rafael Caro-Quintero Public Enemy #1: FBI Most Wanted Terrorist: Saif Al-Adel

I'd rather not speculate as I mention in the past every time we ever went "I wonder if The Hunt will do this" back when The Hunt was the fugitive show it would somehow balloon into other fan pages and websites taking our suggestions or wonderings as fact.
I feel the best course is to assume the format of case selection will be the same (2 main segment fugitive cases, two fifteen seconds of shame and two missing child mentions an episode), but perhaps the way they present the show may be different.
At the moment at least I have not talked to or established any relationships with anyone at Jupiter to know much else
