About Unsolved Mysteries TV Show
"Unsolved Mysteries" drops brand-new episodes on Netflix on Wednesday, Jul 1st. Here's everything you need to know about the revival of this documentary-style series:
What is "Unsolved Mysteries" about?
"Unsolved Mysteries" has had a storied past. The show began in 1987 and ran for 10 years on NBC before it moved to CBS, Lifetime, and Spike TV. The original series officially finished out its run in 2010. Now, Netflix has chosen to reboot the popular franchise to bring viewers more tales of paranormal encounters and strange disappearances.
Here's the official synopsis from Netflix: "Fusing signature elements from the original series with contemporary immersive, character-driven storytelling, the 12 new episodes are rooted in the experiences of ordinary people who have lived the unthinkable — from the trauma of a loved one’s unexplained disappearance or horrific death, to the shock of a bizarre paranormal encounter. Alongside detectives and journalists, family members offer clues, present theories, and identify suspects, hoping one viewer holds the key to solving the mystery."
The reboot is a joint project between the original creators of "Unsolved Mysteries" and the producers of Netflix's smash-hit "Stranger Things."
Will the reboot of "Unsolved Mysteries" be different from the original?
Yes and no. The mysteries themselves will be similar to cases the show has focused on in the past. Fans will even notice the same title music at the start of each episode. However, the new show will only explore one mystery per episode, instead of four. Executive producer Shawn Levy told IndieWire, "We at 21 Laps — along with our partners at Cosgrove/Meurer Productions — made an early decision to have our storytelling dive deeper and establish a more intimate connection with the audience. To do that, you need time."
The reboot will not have a host. Producers did not want to replace Robert Stack, the original host, who died in 2003.
How many episodes are there in "Unsolved Mysteries" Season 1?
The first volume will hit Netflix with a total of six episodes. Overall, the first season will last 12 episodes, according to IndieWire. Volume two does not have an official release date yet. However, Netflix has released the titles of the first six episodes. They are: "Mystery on the Rooftop," "13 Minutes," "House of Terror," "No Ride Home," "Berkshire's UFO," "Missing Witness."
Will there be an "Unsolved Mysteries" Season 2?
Netflix has not announced plans to renew the reboot for a second season, yet. Check back here for more updates on "Unsolved Mysteries" season two.
