Netflix Releases Trailer For Unsolved Mysteries Volume 2
Netflix has released a trailer for Unsolved Mysteries Volume 2. You can watch it here:
The first six episodes - which were released in July - left amateur sleuths wanting more, and on 19 October, that's exactly what they'll get.
If you've never watched it before, the show does exactly what it says on the tin. It originally ran from 1987 to 2010 and the reboot retains much of the original format, while also getting with the times a bit.
As Netflix puts it: "Fusing signature elements from the original series with contemporary immersive, character-driven storytelling, the 12 new episodes are rooted in the experiences of ordinary people who have lived the unthinkable - from the trauma of a loved one's unexplained disappearance or horrific death, to the shock of a bizarre paranormal encounter.
"Alongside detectives and journalists, family members offer clues, present theories, and identify suspects, hoping one viewer holds the key to solving the mystery."
The six new episodes, outlined in the trailer, are as follows: 'Washington Insider Murder', 'A Death in Oslo', 'Death Row Fugitive', 'Tsunami Spirits', 'Lady in the Lake' and 'Stolen Kids'.
The synopsis reads: "In six new episodes, Unsolved Mysteries explores more unexplained disappearances, tragic events, and bizarre occurrences.

"What led to the death of a well-respected political insider? Was an unidentified woman found dead in Oslo, Norway, part of a secret intelligence operation? Did the sudden loss of lives in Japan's 2011 tsunami result in supernatural encounters?
"Perhaps viewers hold vital clues that will help solve these mysteries. Detectives, journalists, and family members offer intriguing theories in this gripping series from the creators of the original docuseries."
As outlined, one key difference between Unsolved Mysteries and the majority of true-crime shows out there (of which there are many) is that you the viewer could potentially help to solve the case.
The show's creator Terry Dunn Meurer told TMZ they received more than 1,500 tips shortly after the first volume was released in the summer. Around 50 of these were considered credible and forwarded on to the relevant law enforcement agencies.
That said, Meurer doesn't actually class it as a true-crime show.
She said: "We regarded Unsolved Mysteries as a 'mystery' show, not a 'true crime' show. When choosing cases, we've always looked for diversity in races, ages, locations and eras.
"We've covered such classic mysteries as Bigfoot, and high-profile, historic crimes ranging from the Black Dahlia murder to the Kennedy assassinations."
It's all very entertaining and worthwhile stuff - but maybe give it a miss if you like your shows to have a happy ending, with no questions left unanswered.
