The U.S. cable network has acquired Steven Seagal: Lawman, including the never-aired third season shot in Arizona with Joe 'America's Toughest Sheriff' Arpaio.

U.S. cable network ReelzChannel will air the ‘lost’ third season of Steven Seagal: Lawman (pictured) in January 2014.

A&E originally aired the first two seasons of the reality series, which followed the ’80s action star-turned-reserve deputy sheriff on the job for the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office in New Orleans. The season one premiere in December 2009 saw 3.4 million viewers tuning in.

However, the network suddenly yanked the third season – shot in Arizona with Joe ‘America’s Toughest Sheriff’ Arpaio – without explanation after initially scheduling it to air in early 2012.

Reelz has now acquired all three seasons of the show and will air the first two over the summer and the fall, in the lead-up to the season three premiere next year. The acquisition includes 29 episodes and the format rights for possible future seasons.

Season one will begin airing on Reelz on June 6.
