Spanning more than a decade, the original run of the Unsolved Mysteries docuseries dazzled and unsettled viewers with its stories of true-life head-scratchers ranging from human crimes to potential supernatural occurrences. Recently, viewers have been discovering (or rediscovering) the Robert Stack-hosted episodes of Unsolved Mysteries on Amazon Prime, and now fans can look forward to new episodes of the series, as Netflix has announced a revival of Unsolved Mysteries.
Unsolved Mysteries co-creators Terry Dunn Meurer and John Cosgrove are teaming up with executive producers Shawn Levy (Stranger Things) and Josh Barry for the revival series, with Robert Wise also on board as a co-executive producer and showrunner (Meurer will also serve as showrunner).
The revival will initially have 12 episodes. A premiere date and host for the new Unsolved Mysteries have yet to be announced, but we'll keep Daily Dead readers updated on further details, and you can check out the official statement from Netflix below:
"The wildly successful and first-of-its-kind mystery docuseries Unsolved Mysteries is being revived by the original creators (Cosgrove/Meurer Productions) along with the producers of Stranger Things (21 Laps).
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.
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 executive producing for 21 Laps."
