MANHUNTERS: FUGITIVE TASK FORCE® - The US Marshals of A&E's Manhunters are back for a new season with their biggest cases yet. Commander Lenny DePaul and his elite team hunt down some of the most dangerous and elusive fugitives they've ever gone after. These are "most wanted" cases from around the country and beyond, taking the Manhunters from the streets of New York to beach towns in Florida, rural areas of Georgia, across the country to Arizona and deep into the faraway mountains of Puerto Rico. Since every criminal is different, Lenny and the team have to know the fugitives inside and out in order to anticipate their next moves and build a strategy to track each one of them down. Nothing will stop this team from putting a whole new group of heinous criminals - child molesters, murderers, a man wanted for brutally killing his wife and daughter - behind bars.
When law enforcement needs to catch the nation's most dangerous fugitives... they call the Manhunters. They're the best of the best, hunting down the worst of the worst - everyone from triple-homicide felons to major international fugitives. They are the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force. Made up of multiple federal, state, and local agencies, these "Manhunters" have the unique ability to transcend jurisdictions in order to work together, unfettered by local boundaries, toward a common goal: to catch violent fugitives and bring them to justice.
Based in the heart of NYC, A&E continues to have unparalleled and unprecedented access, granted by the Department of Justice and the U.S. Marshals, to ride along with the agents of the NY/NJ Task Force, the busiest in the country, as they track down violent criminals on the run. Audiences see these real-life Marshals in a way rarely seen in unscripted television. And audiences get much more than just great action, they get inside the minds of the fugitives as the Marshals anticipate their next moves. Manhunters also shows viewers what drives these dedicated Marshals: family, community, a deep sense of justice, and the common goal of making the world a safer place.
