'Unsolved Mysteries' Part 2: Release date, plot, trailer and all you need to know about return of Netflix's rebooted true-crime show

When Netflix rebooted the long-running true-crime series 'Unsolved Mysteries' and released the first season earlier this year in July, viewers were immediately hooked. The original 'Unsolved Mysteries' ran from 1987 to 2002 and had over 500 episodes. Now, Netflix is set to release the second season and it could not come at a better time with Halloween almost around the corner. 

The first season kept us enthralled with episodes on the murder of Rey Rivera, the French family that was murdered by their father (who is still on the loose) and the disappearance of new mom Lena Chapin, to name a few. It was no wonder then that the show occupied the Top 10 list for a long time on Netflix. 

Release date

'Unsolved Mysteries' Part 2 will release on Netflix on October 19, at 12 am PST. The second part will consist of six episodes. Read on to know more details about the release of the second part of Netflix's 'Unsolved Mysteries'.


'Unsolved Mysteries' sheds light on cult classic cases that include deaths, murder mysteries and paranormal occurrences that have occurred over the past few decades. The official synopsis for the series follows. Fusing signature elements from the original series with contemporary immersive, character-driven storytelling, the new episodes are rooted in the experiences of ordinary people who have lived the unthinkable — from the trauma of a loved one’s unexplained disappearance or horrific death to the shock of a bizarre paranormal encounter. Alongside detectives and journalists, family members offer clues, present theories and identify suspects, hoping one viewer holds the key to solving the mystery.


Two episodes of Part 2 were filmed outside the United States and will track cases in Brazil, according to co-creator Terry Dun Meurer who spoke to The New York Post. The show will not have a host. Robert Stack had served as the host and narrator for the show for 15 years and he died in 2003.



The series is produced by Cosgrove/Meurer Productions (the original 'Unsolved Mysteries') and 21 Laps Entertainment ('Stranger Things'). Shawn Levy and Josh Barry serve as executive producers. Robert Wise will act as co-executive producer along with showrunner Terry Dunn Meurer.
