The Netflix run of Unsolved Mysteries will utilize numerous same elements that made the show popular during its original TV run.

It's Unsolved Mysteries. That's right, Netflix is reviving the mystery docu-series Unsolved Mysteries for at least 12 new episodes.

Like the original, the revival will use actors to recreate the events surrounding its mysteries, and will also include interviews with family members, police officers, and others involved with each case. In keeping with tradition, each episode will focus on a single unsolved crime, unexplained disappearance, or paranormal occurrence. All told, 500 episodes of the original aired, first on NBC, then CBS picked it up after it was cancelled, according to Deadline.

Old episodes of Unsolved Mysteries are available to stream on Amazon Prime.

Stack, a tall, handsome, imposing actor with a distinctive voice who played Eliot Ness in The Untouchables television series from 1959 to 1963, racked up impressive credentials before he helmed Unsolved Mysteries. By the Spike era, Stack had died (2003), so Dennis Farina became host.

In 2017, John Cosgrove, co-creator of the original series with Terry Dunn Meurer, said he was actively working on a reboot. Cosgrove, Levy, and Josh Barry will serve as executive producers, with Robert Wise co-executive producing and showrunning alongside Meurer.
