American pay-TV network WGN America has set a September air date for Duane “Dog” Chapman’s return to television in Dog’s Most Wanted.

In the new series (pictured), cameras will follow Chapman, his late wife Beth and their team, “The Dirty Dozen”, as they embark on a cross-country manhunt to track fugitives from a “carefully curated list” from the FBI, U.S. Marshals and individual states.

The series will also provide an in-depth look at the Chapmans’ personal lives and Beth’s enduring battle with cancer. Beth passed away on June 26 and is survived by her husband, children, stepchildren, countless grandchildren, and one great-grandchild.

“My wife is, was, and always will be the heart and soul of Dog’s Most Wanted,” said Duane Chapman in a statement. “Beth wanted nothing more than for the show to go on, and I am so proud of the legacy that she left behind. She lived and died for this show, and she would be so proud of how hard we worked bringing these criminals to justice.”

Dog’s Most Wanted is produced by Dorsey Pictures, a Red Arrow Studios company, alongside Entertainment by Bonnie and Clyde. Chris Dorsey¬†and Matt Assmus¬†serve as executive producers for Dorsey Pictures. Chapman and the late Beth Chapman executive produce for Bonnie & Clyde.

Dog’s Most Wanted premieres Sept. 4 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on WGN America.
