My guess is we may not see much, if any Lost Love episodes. If they do, I could see them combining those into more of a theme based episode. So while maybe not separate segments like the original series, they might do one episode with 2 or 3 lost loved that share a common theme of sorts. Just a thought though.

Also, with it being on Netflix, even if they did a full hour for a single Lost Love case, with streaming rather than TV, you can easily just skip to the next episode

Don’t expect it to be anything like the original Stck version. It will be completely different in tone and presentation. It will probably be exactly like an ID show with the name Unsplved Mysteries on it

Sad but true. Those who don't learn from history are destined to repeat it. The 2008 Spike version of UM was met with a negative reception from fans. And what happens? They decide to reboot it again, this time as a one-case-per-episode series. It may be fashionable for true crime shows to use that approach, but that doesn't mean UM should follow suit. Fans will be disappointed again. Fans want the UM they know and love, not the one that gets rebooted as a faceless entity. As the old saying goes, insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

I think it's early days to really be saying they haven't learned, IMO.

We know next to nothing really except for that one line. If the episodes are short, it's not a big deal. Unsolved Mysteries did do 20 minute segments at times. All we really have is 12 episodes but no run time. If they're half hourish episodes this actually helps tell a more complete story, since with 30 years going by we know that was an issue for them. According to another site's write up they're giving it a decent budget akin to their other docuseries, this is good.

I hate that Farina version as much as anyone, I don't even consider it Unsolved Mysteries, but I'm not imagining Google Earth or stock rock music will be in Netflix's future.

Given that this revival will be from the producer of Stranger Things and the popularity of 80s/90s nostalgia is as high as ever, I'd expect this version to be celebratory of the original style of the show.

My thoughts exactly. When I first saw this was the case, I got super excited because Iím sure they will do it right. Iím sure some things will be updated. Personally, Iíd love to see the re-enactments done on 16mm film as the early seasons were. It gives it that gritty, grainy, creepy look to it. But I know they will likely be shooting all digital. But I am just glad to have the series back.

As far as run time, I think longer segments will be fine. As I said before, with binge watching a thing now, I think it really wonít be a big deal. Most will sit and watch the season over a weekend anyway so who cares if itís only one story per episode? I say just think of the entire season as one big episode with -2 segments. Just skip to the next episode if you donít like the segment/episode that is on.

Interesting but it wont work without Rob.

Also....ugh the acting. It will not hold a candle to early UM when they shot on film

This is amazing news! Amazing in the sense that it's coming back, although I have soon realized from having UM on streaming that I really only "rewatch" seasons 1-5, and skip the rest. High hopes since this is being redone by Stranger Things producer, as that show is pretty high quality and true to the era. Hopefully they realize that is what people want and remember about UM.

I'm happy it is coming back. It won't be 1989 version, but I don't care. I got my Amazon Prime to comfort me.

I can picture John Larroquette being the host.

Tony Todd would also be good I think.

This right here.

Nothing and no one will ever touch what Robert Stack did. If I go into it expecting to watch a lost episode of the NBC era I'm going to be disappointed.

I would HOPE they learned from the mistakes of the Spike hackery, though on the flip side it's the only version that current average viewers likely know since it's all that gets replayed on TV. (I don't get Lifetime not airing their own version) I'm just going to remain optimistic until I have a reason not to be, and I've already disowned one remake and replayed the OG into the ground I'll do it again if it warrants it.

Netflix has been killing it with the crime docs lately. The Innocent Man, Murder Mountain, Evil Genius, and obviously Making a Murderer, they've all been well produced without a google map in site

Sorry to burst your bubble, but you thought wrong.

Ad-supported broadcast television will not be around in ten years. Streaming is the future. Netflix has over 200 million subscribers worldwide. A new version of Unsolved Mysteries on a broadcast network would be lucky to get 5 million viewers. The only people who still watch broadcast networks religiously are the old farts who watch those insipid CBS procedurals.


Unsolved Mysteries being rebooted on Netflix is a great move and I for one cannot wait to add it to my list and begin streaming.
