Netflix's new creepy series Unsolved Mysteries is the perfect binge watch for fans of true crime and the paranormal alike. Check out the trailer:
Yup, Unsolved Mysteries shares stories from across a wide range of topics, including murders and disappearances alongside episodes about alien abductions and otherworldly encounters - sounds good, eh?
Although it's new to Netflix, Unsolved Mysteries is actually an old format which ran from 1987 to 2010, and has now been rebooted by the streaming giant with a slick new look.
It features interviews with those close to the cases, as well as reconstructions.
The show was Netflix's most streamed show yesterday - the very same day it was released - and is already picking up rave reviews from viewers.

Taking to Twitter one fan recommended: "The Unsolved Mysteries reboot is worth your time."
Another wrote: "The Unsolved Mysteries reboot on Netflix is really good so far but what is standing out to me is the production quality. It's simply gorgeous looking."
While a third posted: "Y'all, Unsolved Mysteries is back and it's bringing back all the creepy vibes of my youth! The Robert Stack homage in the theme is *chef's kiss* I know what I'll be watching the next few nights."

Among the creepy cases viewers will trawl through are a mysterious UFO incident that took place in Berkshire County, Massachusetts back in 1969; the death of Alonzo Brooks, who disappeared after a party and was found dead a month later; and the grizzly case of Xavier DuPont De Ligonnès and his family, who were all found dead in their home in France.
In a statement, Netflix said: "The iconic series Unsolved Mysteries is back! 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."
You can stream the first six episodes of Unsolved Mysteries on Netflix right now.
