The 12-episode reboot will keep the original series' format of interviews and reenactments to investigate true crime and paranormal cases, updated for the streaming era.
Stranger Things executive producer Shawn Levy will produce Unsolved Mysteries for his company 21 Laps, alongside the show's creators John Cosgrove and Terry Dunn Meurer.
Over 500 episodes of Unsolved Mysteries have been produced for various networks. The show's original and longest run was from 1987 to 1997 on NBC with host Robert Stack. CBS and Lifetime then briefly had it after its NBC cancellation, and Dennis Farina hosted a revival on Spike from 2008 to 2010. Stack and Farina are both deceased, so the reboot will have a new host.
