Shortly after a rumor began to spread around the net, Netflix officially confirmed last week that they’re bringing back the ’90s series “Unsolved Mysteries,“ which was originally hosted by the late Robert Stack. The mystery docuseries is being revived by the original creators (Cosgrove/Meurer Productions) along with the producers of “Stranger Things” (21 Laps).
Netflix promises in an official statement…
“This modern take on the classic series will maintain the chilling feeling viewers loved about the original, while also telling the stories through the lens of a premium Netflix documentary series. Each episode will focus on one mystery and once again will look to viewers to help aid investigators in closing the book on long outstanding cases.”
Additionally, we’ve learned that Netflix has ordered up 12 episodes.
The reboot uses re-enactments and interviews to retell the circumstances of, well, mysteries that are unsolved. Covering crimes, tales of lost love, unexplained history and paranormal events, viewers are encouraged to call in with information that might solve the mystery.
Terry Dunn Meurer is showrunning this all-new version of the show she co-created with fellow EP John Cosgrove. Shawn Levy and Josh Barry are exec producing for 21 Laps.
