They should stick with the proven 3-4 segments per airing. There is no reason to utilize a complete episode to give the basic facts, descriptions, information law enforcement contacts. They will end up solving more cases if they return to the original multi-segment format.

How about William Shatner? He did a great job on Rescue 911 years ago and with his own talk show. Brian Dennehy would do a great job

I thought he did great on Rescue 911, which was basically born off of UM. But as the post states above they're revamping that too. I could see Brian Dennehy doing it and bringing some of his own intensity to it. I fear they're gonna try to get some stupid trendy idiot

Hope they include *some* classic piece......like the graphics, or the music or (please please please!) both! Having the original intro (voiced by Danny Dark) would be awesome too (the new guy voicing it on the Amazon edits reminds me of Napoleon Dynamite)

Very happy to hear that the show is coming back although I agree, they should produce them as 3-4 segments per episode. As noted, almost all of these crime-related shows do one an episode and by restricting UM to this, you are making it like all the rest.

That being said, I'm excited about the show's return. With it being on Netflix, that means there will be a LOT of exposure to help these old and new cases be solved. Plus, it might lead to the old Robert Stack episodes being on it. A nice story coming just days after what would have been his 100th birthday.

But it won't be the same without Robert Stack.

I also hope they don't give the show too much of a polished look. UM looked better and was more creepy when it was more "low budget."

But anyway, this is good news on so many levels!

Actually, I have been championing this since Robert Stack died (Shatner I mean). While the host is important imo, I’m just happy to have the show back.

I’m not overly thrilled about 1 segment per show, but it works well for Disappeared, so I think UM will make it work. Plus it leaves more time to get more info in per case. UM unfortunately had to edit a lot of content for time in the original run. Although the streaming vehicle would eliminate this anyway, I think from a production cost standpoint, it makes sense. Each episode will have research, travel, and re-enactment costs for a single area/case. So I can deal with it. Besides, people will binge watch anyway so it only makes sense.

Shatner would do a great job, I think. However.. Shatner is 87.

I would think that since they're only doing one case per episode.. It might just be a good voice actor with no screen time. That would also help keep costs down.

If they do expand to 60 minutes and do the 3-4 per episode (I am assuming 20-30 minutes if they're doing a single case) then maybe they get a host.

That they are only doing one case per episode shows that Cosgrove-Muerer have not learned anything.

They will probably get some loser like Carrot Top to host the show. If not, David Duchovny. They have no clue.

One case per show is not exciting. It makes them more like Dateline or 48 Hours.

My pick to host is Stacey Keach. Or Keith David.

Can you imagine 60 minutes about the polio girl looking for her childhood friend?

I'd die.
