UM was always designed for American audiences.

Please don't judge us all that way.

As a yank myself, I welcome our UK/Aussie/SA/Scandinavian and other English speaking brothers. Everyone else is welcome too, although because I am a lazy American, they will have to speak English since I cannot speak their language.

I would be perfectly fine with a new UM show covering foreign mysteries, especially those from English speaking nations. I say that because I can culturally relate to places like the UK since we're not that far removed from them. I would have a harder time relating to, say, a mystery in India or Mongolia. (I am speaking strictly of true crime mysteries).

I guess I could enjoy mysteries from France or Germany. They are culturally close to us, but there is that language barrier (French are much like us Yanks and think the world revolves around them. They only know French and aren't keen on learning English especially).

The original UM did cover a few foreign mysteries, but they were mainly in the supernatural/UFO/Nazi gold/lost treasure realm. I would enjoy some good true crime stories from abroad as well. I know there's some good ones out there worthy of coverage.

I think it could work. Of course with the show produced here, logically most Mysteries will still be based within the US, but I think with the combination of the host giving narration and the use of translators (just like in the few segments in non English speaking countries in the past), it would be a nice fit.

I'm not sure, but I think that the point trying to be made is that while Netflix does have a worldwide footprint, their selection varies greatly by country and not all programming is available from one location to the other. Not everything is available everywhere. Of course, if they have announced that UM will be worldwide on Netflix, disregard.

This is why I use a VPN to access content that's only available in the Canadian or Euro netflix markets, and I know that a lot of people in other places do the same to specifically access the US version of the platform because the selection is typically larger than anywhere else in the world. Different, but larger.

When Netflix produces & owns it, it's everywhere.

I think that is generally true but there may be exceptions. If they don't have subtitles for a country's language I don't know if they include it in that country.

I watch a Netflix-produced Japanese reality show and it is available every week or 2 in Japan, but its released in batches every few months to the rest of the world.

A lot of times with a new show Netflix does not release info in advance. We may not even know who the host is until its released. I don't know if they have release dates ahead of time for everything either.

I thought I'd read that they were starting production in Feb or March but I can't find that now.

This is also true. We generally get little in way of casting announcements for new shows until we get a trailer a month ahead. We get more for returning shows and Unsolved Mysteries because of its following and history kind of falls in between the two. (New show, established fan base). I'd expect to get a host announcement but it may not come until when we get a trailer. The nature of the show also allows them to hire a host much later into the production cycle than the segment filming.

Netflix does a good job promoting its originals within their app, and on social media. When it launches it will be front and center to entice viewership.

I also think the fan base is being downplayed by some people in this thread. Just because they haven't been active on SO, Reddit, had access to the various bootlegs for the last 15 years does not mean there aren't fans of the show. So many from my personal circle of friends are rediscovering the show now that they have access to it once again from Prime and even more now from the free streaming on things like Youtube and Tubi. If the numbers coming from Prime and the other streaming outlets ahead of the series commission weren't favorable it wouldn't be happening.

In today's PC America, they'll have to find a host that won't offend the Snowflakes and appeases every single minority. I'm thinking Kaitlyn Jenner maybe?

Glad to see that the art of irony is still alive and well.

Liev Schreiber would be my dream pick to take on hosting duties for the new UM. Great actor not to mention an amazing voice for narrating. It's no wonder he's one of the most sought after voice talents in the world.

He would be a fantastic choice. I love his voice work on the many sports shows that he has done. And of course, his role in Goon.

Haha... I didnít want to sound biased since he does a ton of stuff for the NHL (30 year ice hockey player here ).
