Six More Unsolved Mysteries Episodes Are On The Way

Six More Unsolved Mysteries Episodes Are On The Way

If you've rattled through Netflix series Unsolved Mysteries already then fear not - more episodes are on the way.

The reboot of the show - which originally ran from 1987 to 2010 - dropped on the streaming service at the start of the month, with six episodes made available.

However, Netflix has another six episodes up its sleeve, and a spokesperson told Decider they will be released at a later date.

A previous statement from the streaming giants read: "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."

And it seems the show could very well help to crack one of the mysteries, as creator Terry Dunn Meurer told TMZ they had received more than 1,500 tips since the series launched. She said around 50 were considered credible and forwarded on to the relevant law enforcement agencies.

Speaking about the making of the show, Meurer and co-creator John Cosgrove - both of whom worked on the original and the reboot - said: "The network debuted Unsolved Mysteries as a weekly series in 1988, with 22-24 episodes per season. Back then, the internet didn't exist, so we hired a clipping service to scour newspapers all over the country for mysteries with unique twists and turns.

"Once the series became very popular, fans began submitting their own mysteries, and our research team combed through huge bags of viewer mail. Law enforcement agencies also recognised the show's success in solving cases, and started sending submissions.

"The hardest part of our job was selecting only four stories for each episode. There are an overwhelming number of unsolved mysteries in the world, and we wish we could solve them all.

"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."

Among the creepy cases examined by the new series so far 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, whose family were all found dead in their home in France after he disappeared in 2011.

LADbible has contacted Netflix for confirmation of when the next six episodes are due to be released.
