Netflix is bringing back a classic. Deadline reports the streaming service is rebooting the TV show Unsolved Mysteries.
The original series was hosted by Robert Stack and explored cold cases, unexplained phenomena, and other mysterious events. The show ran on NBC from 1987 to 1997 before moving to CBS for two final seasons. The series was then briefly revived by Lifetime in 2001 and by Spike in 2008.
Netflix’s Unsolved Mysteries reboot comes from Stranger Things executive producer Shawn Levy. The new series “will use re-enactments in a documentary format to profile real-life mysteries and unsolved crimes, lost love, cases involving missing persons and unexplained paranormal events.”
Netflix has not yet announced a premiere date for their Unsolved Mysteries reboot, but the streaming service has ordered 12 episodes.
