I love Unsolved Mysteries! I’m super excited that it is coming back as a reboot on Netflix!

Buena Vista Television

This takes me back to my younger years! I was obsessed with this show. Unsolved Mysteries started back in 1987. It featured unsolved cases and had a 1-800 number to call if you had information to help solve the cases. It was so interesting to watch.

It had missing person cases, unsolved murders, UFO’s and even paranormal stuff. It wasn’t like any other show on at the time, at least as far as I can remember.

The first season has 12 episodes and I can not wait! From the creators of the original “Unsolved Mysteries” docuseries and the producers of “Stranger Things.”

The cross-generational fan base for Unsolved Mysteries is amazing. We’ll hear from viewers — now in their 20s and 30s — who say, ‘I used to sneak episodes behind my parents’ backs when I was young.’ Everyone seems to have a favorite segment that totally freaked them out. We’ve learned that audiences like to be scared, and real stories scare people.

Executive producers Terry Dunn Meurer and John Cosgrove shared in a statement

A few things will be different with the reboot. One difference is that there will not be a host this time. I mean no one could really take the place of Robert Stack, right? He passed away back in 2003.

Also, instead of calling a 1-800 number with tips, you will be directed to a website, so you can still help!

Here is a run down of the first 6 episodes in season one!

“Mystery on the Rooftop,” directed by Marcus A. Clarke

The body of newlywed Rey Rivera was found in an abandoned conference room at Baltimore’s historic Belvedere Hotel in May 2006, eight days after he mysteriously disappeared. While the Baltimore Police maintained that the 32-year-old committed suicide by jumping from the hotel’s roof, the medical examiner declared Rey’s death “unexplained.” Many, including his devastated wife, Allison, suspect foul play.

“13 Minutes,” directed by Jimmy Goldblum

Patrice Endres, 38, mysteriously vanished from her Cumming, Georgia, hair salon in broad daylight, during a 13-minute timeframe, leaving behind her teenage son, Pistol. Patrice’s disappearance intensified the existing tensions between Pistol and his stepfather as they dealt with the loss and searched for answers.

“House of Terror,” directed by Clay Jeter

In April 2011, French police discovered the wife and four children of Count Xavier Dupont de Ligonnès buried under the back porch of their home in Nantes. Xavier, the family patriarch, was not among the dead and nowhere to be found. Investigators gradually pieced together clues and a timeline that pointed to Xavier as a devious, pre-meditate killer. For instance, they now know that shortly before the crimes occurred, Xavier inherited a gun that was the same model as the murder weapon.

“No Ride Home,” directed by Marcus A. Clarke

Alonzo Brooks, 23, never returned home from a party he attended with friends in the predominantly white town of La Cygne, Kansas. A month later, a search party led by his family locates Alonzo’s body — in an area that law enforcement had already canvassed multiple times.

“Berkshire’s UFO,” directed by Marcus A. Clarke

On September 1, 1969, many residents in Berkshire County, Massachusetts were traumatized by a sighting of a UFO. Eyewitnesses — many just children at the time — have spent their lives trying to convince the world that what they saw was real.

“Missing Witness,” directed by Clay Jeter

At age 17, a guilt-ridden Lena Chapin confessed to helping her mother dispose of her murdered stepfather’s body four years prior. In 2012, Lena was issued a subpoena to testify against her mother in court, but the authorities were never able to deliver the summons — because Lena had disappeared, leaving behind a young son.

I have this on my calendar! Make sure you set a reminder as well! The new Unsolved Mysteries will debut on Netflix on July 1st!
