In a world full of uncertainty, a mystery people might actually enjoy sounds like a welcome distraction. Fear not, "Unsolved Mysteries" is riding to the rescue with a new batch of head-scratching whodunits for everyone’s binging pleasure.
The show will have six new episodes ready for streaming on Oct. 19. In true “Unsolved Mysteries” fashion, the episodes are a mix of true crime and paranormal phenomena.
The trailer promises to investigate tsunami spirits, kidnapped children, the death of a Washington insider, a "lady in the lake," a death in Oslo and a death row fugitive. It includes a creepy scene in which a child's toy seemingly turns on and makes noise by itself in Japan.
"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 previous statement announcing the new season.
The news of a second batch of episodes initially dropped in the form of a cryptic tweet the show put out back in August. It read: "Let's see how much of a sleuth Unsolved Mysteries Volume 1 made you..." as it invited viewers to find a hidden message in the image.
Netflix revived the iconic show (all 12 seasons of the original run are available to watch on Peacock now) earlier this year with a six-episode season. They focused on mysteries like the murder of a French aristocratic family, the puzzling death of a man found dead at a Baltimore hotel and the killing of a Black Kansas man named Alonzo Brooks. Since the release of the episodes, Brooks’ body has been exhumed and the FBI called it a hate crime. The show has received “hundreds of tips” on Volume 1 cases since its release this summer, co-creator Terry Dunn Meurer told Oxygen.com.
"We’ve solved over 260 cases," show creator Terry Dunn Meurer previously told Oxygen.com of the more than 1,300 cases the show has covered over the years. Viewers are urged to submit relevant information about any of the cases covered through the show’s tip line.
