"Unsolved Mysteries" has posed many questions since its return to Netflix — now it has answered the mystery of when it will return with more episodes. 

Netflix asked "Unsolved Mysteries" fans on Twitter Wednesday in a cryptic post to investigate a blurry photo. "Let's see how much of a sleuth Unsolved Mysteries Volume 1 made you..." the post reads.

Zooming in on the photo reveals small text that reads, "New Mysteries: October 19." A spokesperson for the show confirmed to Oxygen.com the show will be returning on Oct. 19 for "Unsolved Mysteries: Volume 2."

"In six new episodes, 'Unsolved Mysteries' profiles more unexplained disappearances, tragic events, and bizarre occurrences. Perhaps one viewer holds the key to solving these cases," Netflix said in a statement provided to Oxygen.com.

The Netflix revival of the popular mystery series foregoes many of the traditional elements of its original run, like a host in the vein of original presenter Robert Stack. (All 12 seasons of the original run are available to watch on Peacock now.) But each episode of the reboot still zeroes in on a single unsolved or unexplainable case, from a close encounter with an unidentified flying object to the brutal killing of a French aristocratic family.

Other episodes explored the unexplained disappearance of an Ozarks stepdad and the possibly linked disappearance of his stepdaughter years later, the bizarre death of a man at a Baltimore hotel and his enigmatic employer, the vanishing of a Georgia hairdresser, and the possible hate crime killing of a Black Kansas man.

Thanks to the show’s fame, hundreds of cases featured in the original series run were eventually solved through the show’s tip line, where viewers could submit any relevant information they might have on a case that aired.

The same may come from the Netflix revival, which has already received “hundreds of tips” since its release this summer, the show’s co-creator Terry Dunn Meurer told Oxygen.com.

Of all the cases investigated, there has been considerable motion around the Alonzo Brooks case: His body was exhumed by authorities earlier this summer.
