Unsolved Mysteries is back, you guys! The cult series that revolves around a variety of “real” unsolved mysteries is coming to Netflix on July 1.
The new six-part series is a revamp of the Robert Stack hosted series that first aired back in 1987. Interestingly, the original creators of the old series are back to breathe some mysterious air into this iteration. In addition to that cool bit of news, the producers of Netflix’s Stranger Things are also on board.
The official synopsis goes like this:
The iconic series UNSOLVED MYSTERIES is back! It fuses 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. From the creators of the original docuseries, Cosgrove/Meurer Productions, and 21 Laps Entertainment, the producers of Stranger Things.
The trailer looks great. Best of all it has this slow build to that ominous theme that scared the hell out of a lot of kids back in the day.
