Unsolved Mysteries (Volume 3)

Netflix played the masterstroke in 2020 after resurrecting one of the biggest true crime shows, Unsolved Mysteries. The show went off air in 2002, after almost 2 decades later the popular documentary show made a comeback keeping some of the original features like creepy theme song intact. 

The showrunners respected what the original host Robert Stack brough to the show, thus they did not bring anyone as the new face. What a strategy. 

The first 2 volumes were a hit and the third is slated in the summer of 2022. The previous volumes included stories of UFO sightings in Massachusetts, a puzzling death in Oslo, and tsunami spirits in Japan. Volume 3 will show more content that cover more unexplained disappearances, tragic events, and outlandish occurrences.
