Unsolved mysteries it’s back. The TV series that scared us from the late 1980s and early 1990s has a new lease on life courtesy of Netflix, the original creators of the show, and producers of Strange things. Sadly, Robert Stack, arguably the most memorable presenter the show has ever had, passed away a long time ago, which means that we won’t be blessed with his soft but creepy voice that tells these weird tales. But that doesn’t mean the new Unsolved mysteries It is not worth checking out. Check out the trailer below.

When I was young, I was obsessed with Unsolved mysteries. The show featured seemingly inexplicable mysteries related to missing people, unsolved murders, alien kidnappings, and, my personal favorite, ghosts. There were interviews with real people involved, as well as dramatic performances, and while the production values weren’t very high, there was something undeniably disturbing about the show. On more than one occasion it scared me so much that I had to sleep with the lights on.
Now, Unsolved mysteries is back, with brand new episodes on Netflix. This is how Netflix describes the show:
Merging elements characteristic of the original series with an immersive and character-driven contemporary narrative, the 12 new episodes are rooted in the experiences of ordinary people who have lived through the unthinkable, from the trauma of the unexplained disappearance or the horrible death of a to be loved until the shock. of a strange paranormal encounter. Together with detectives and journalists, family members offer clues, present theories, and identify suspects, hoping that a viewer has the key to solving the mystery.
I have seen the first six episodes of this new version of the program and have found them very addictive. I’ll admit that I miss Robert Stack’s ominous presence, there are no hosts in all this time, and my only real complaint is that the first six episodes don’t cover paranormal stories (except one UFO-centric episode), and those are the ones that always I enjoyed more. Maybe some of the remaining six episodes will take care of that. Beyond those complaints, however, this new Unsolved mysteries It has a much more impressive production design than the original, and some of the tales are really weird.
The new Unsolved mysteries It comes from the producers of Cosgrove / Meurer Productions, Terry Dunn Meurer, John Cosgrove, Robert M. Wise and Shawn Levy and Josh Barry of 21 Laps Entertainment. The first six episodes arrive 1st of July.
