Rejoice: Netflix Is Bringing Back UNSOLVED MYSTERIES

"Maybe YOU can help solve a mystery..."

Here's an idea so good, so forehead-slappingly obvious, you'll be stunned to realize it's taken this long to happen: Netflix is bringing back Unsolved Mysteries, the beloved docu-mystery-thriller series that creeped out an entire generation of children back in the '90s.

The news comes to us from The Wrap, who reveal the reboot will be spearheaded by the show's original creators, alongside Stranger Things executive producer Shawn Levy. A dozen episodes have been ordered thus far, each of which will tackle one mystery, and all of which will "maintain the chilling feeling viewers loved about the original." 

For the unfamiliar: the original Unsolved Mysteries ran from 1987 to 2010, a run that included hundreds of episodes. The series was big on investigating stories about abductions and murders, but the real draw were the segments that focused on wild shit like the Bermuda Triangle, UFOs, and inexplicable hauntings. That, plus Robert Stack standing around fog-covered sets in an overcoat. People in the late '80s/early '90s loved Robert Stack in an overcoat.

We're hyped to hear this one's coming back, and curious to see what this iconic series looks like with 2019 production values. Here's hoping they make good on that promise to keep the show as inexplicably unsettling as it was back when we were kids. We've missed that feeling.

Stay tuned for more on the new Unsolved Mysteries as further updates roll in.
