Netflix announced that their reboot of the iconic series "Unsolved Mysteries" will hit the streaming site with six new episodes on July 1st. "Unsolved Mysteries" ran from 1987 until 2010. Although most known for being hosted by suave Robert Stack, who hosted until 2002, it was also hosted by Dennis Farina. The theme song still haunts my dreams.

Although the newly rebooted series won't have a host (because honestly, no one can replace Stack or Farina) the trailer for the series does look like it will keep in the tradition of the original. Bringing us six episodes on July 1st, with six more to come at a later time, the official synopsis from Netflix is:

"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. From the creators of the original docuseries, Cosgrove/Meurer Productions, and 21 Laps Entertainment, the producers of “Stranger Things.”

 

Chills, right? I like how they kind of incorporated the theme song. The reboot looks promising and does emphasize the involvement of the producers of "Stranger Things" which is a show I love. Netflix has really upped their game in the true crime department and in the time of quarantine, this could not have at a better time.

In honor of the reboot, here are four episodes that should have happened.
