Netflix Reboots Beloved Crime Series ‘Unsolved Mysteries’

Published

Over the years, Netflix’s love for crime stories has seen huge success. Shows like Making A Murderer and Evil Genius gained praise from The Daily Telegraph and The Atlantic. Now, Netflix is looking to expand on these kinds of shows. They’re bringing back an old favorite to lead the charge.

More Mysteries To Solve

The beloved series Unsolved Mysteries is getting a 12-episode reboot thanks to Netflix. Shawn Levy will be producing this reboot through his company 21 Laps Entertainment. Levy is best known for being an executive producer on the hit Netflix series, Stranger Things. That show’s success led to his company signing an exclusive deal with the streaming service.

Can’t Do It Alone

This reboot wouldn’t be appropriate without some familiar names attached to it. John Cosgrove
and Terry Dunn Meurer, who created the original show, will aid Levy. Their work on the show earned them six Emmy nominations for Outstanding Informational Series. “When I look at the old shows, I still cry at some of the lost love updates. And we always felt we were serving the community when we helped get wanted criminals off the street,” Meurer said in a Reddit AMA.

Mystery Of The Week

Debuting in 1987, the original series was a hit for NBC, who aired the show for a decade. The show jumped to CBS and Lifetime before ending things with Spike TV in 2010. The series saw Matthew McConaughey, Cheryl Hines, and Daniel Dae Kim in their early acting roles. Overall, the show has over 500 episodes to its name.

A Long Time Coming

For the past few years, Cosgrove and Meurer wanted to revive the series. In a 2017 statement to Decider, they talked about possible new episodes. “We are actively talking to a couple of broadcasters who have shown interest, and we’re very optimistic that we’ll have something by way of new episodes by the end of the year,” Cosgrove said.

Unsolved Mysteries episodes are currently streaming on Hulu and Amazon Prime. The Spike TV episodes of the series are available for free on YouTube.
