The new trailer for Netflix’s Unsolved Mysteries revival will serve up a number of spooky and supernatural stories just like the original. Based on the hit American mystery documentary television program, the series ran from 1987 to 2010. There were a total of 600 episodes made, which is indeed impressive.
Although we doubt the new Unsolved Mysteries will have that kind of longevity, the premise of the new series will surely enthral audiences due to its documentary-style format, which is based on ‘real’ events.
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 first six episodes of Unsolved Mysteries is due to arrive on Netflix on July 1.
