Netflix’s reboot of the classic series Unsolved Mysteries is almost here. The revival comes to you from the show’s original creators, plus the producers of Stranger Things. The original series ran for an incredible 23 years. This time around, there are just 12 episodes, split into multiple volumes, so make sure you savor every one. 

Here’s everything you need to know about Unsolved Mysteries.

Unsolved Mysteries Release Date

Volume 1 of Unsolved Mysteries will hit Netflix on July 1. That drop will consist of six of the twelve total episodes.

Unsolved Mysteries Plot

Like its predecessor series, the reboot follows real cold cases, mysteries, and reports of paranormal activity. Unlike the original, which covered several subjects in a single episode, the new version will give each case a full, hour-long treatment. 

Unsolved Mysteries Cast

The OG Unsolved Mysteries was iconic for many reasons, perhaps chief among them the show’s legendary host, Robert Slack. Those are big shoes to fill—too big, as it turns out, which is in part why the new series doesn’t have a host. “The other part of the equation was that we wanted this be in the documentary world, where the people whose mysteries these episodes involve are more present and more of the storytellers,” series co-creator Terry Dunn Meurer told The New York Post

So who’s involved in this new set of stories? According to People, the very first episode will feature the 2006 death of Rey Rivera, and the other episodes in Volume 1 will cover the disappearance of Patrice Endres, the murder of the family of Count Xavier Dupont de Ligonnès, the death of Alonzo Brooks, the Berkshire UFO, and the disappearance of Lena Chapin.
