Netflix is looking to bring closure to more Unsolved Mysteries: The streaming service has picked up a modern take on the true-crime reality series, from the original creators and Stranger Things executive producer Shawn Levy.
The update will “once again look to viewers to help aid investigators in closing the book on long outstanding cases,” Netflix announced on Twitter.
The original Unsolved Mysteries ran for nine seasons on NBC from 1987 to 1997 before moving to CBS for its final two years. In 2001, Lifetime revived the program, which also briefly aired on Spike. Past hosts include Raymond Burr, Karl Malden, Robert Stack, Virginia Madsen and Dennis Farina.
