Shawn Levy, Executive Producer of the hit Netflix show Stranger Things, is going to reboot the classic true crime series Unsolved Mysteries for the streaming giant.
The original show aired from 1987 to 2010, and it used re-enactments and interviews to portray stories of mysterious crimes, seemingly paranormal events, and more. At the time, viewers were encouraged to call in to a hotline with information that help with resolving the bizarre mysteries.

Now, the original creators have teamed up with Levy for a modern take on the series, which will continue looking to viewers to help investigators solve mysteries. The show will air in 12 distinct instalments while following the original series’ documentary format, except each episode will only concentrate on one mystery at a time.
Unfortunately, there is no confirmed release date or trailer yet.
