Unsolved Mysteries Getting Reboot At Netflix From Stranger Things’ Shawn Levy


I couldn’t tell you how many hours I whittled away as a kid lounging on my couch from noon to 2 pm in the summer watching Unsolved Mysteries. Robert Stack’s sultry voice was just the ticket I needed to fall into two paranoia-filled hours of entertainment, which followed various unsolved cases, be they criminal, supernatural, or extra-terrestrial in nature. Now, it looks like my childhood is headed for the small screen yet again.

According to Deadline, the revival is headed to Netflix and will come courtesy of Stranger Things executive producer Shawn Levy and his 21 Laps Entertainment banner, which has a deal with the streaming service. Levy will reportedly be overseeing this revamp with the original show’s creators John Cosgrove and Terry Dunn Meurer.

It looks like this series will come with 12 episodes, and just like its predecessor, it will feature a mix of re-enactments and documentary format covering the same breadth of content as the original. However, unlike the original series, which featured a few cases per episode, this reboot will cover just one large mystery per episode.

As far as a host, I know it’ll be tough to replace Robert Stack, though if I were to make a recommendation for that, I’d point you to Patrick Warburton, who gives off some Rod Serling vibe in A Series of Unfortunate Events. He’s not Robert Stack, but he’s not a bad choice.

Were you ever as obsessed with this show as I was? If not…why not? That’d the real unsolved mystery here.
