If you, too, were a spooky kid who looked forward to watching the TV Show Unsolved Mysteries every day after school, then you’ll be happy to know that Netflix has rebooted the show! Sadly the iconic host of the show, Robert Stack (forever in our hearts and ears), passed away in 2003. It’s hard to imagine a world of Unsolved Mysteries without him, but thankfully they still kept some nostalgic touches like the theme songs and the character-driven storytelling.
Netflix released six new episodes on July 1 for the show’s 15th season. Another six episodes are planned for October 2020.
At least the world has given us this one gift. We deserve it. You can now be entertained and terrified by other people’s tragedies again. Also, I’m grown up now (mostly) so I can watch this show right before bedtime. I don’t even care if I get nightmares. Take that, Mom.
In this first installment of blog posts for fans of Unsolved Mysteries, enjoy this list of True Crime books. Because after all, as our beloved Robert Stack would say, “Perhaps you can help solve a mystery.”
