How many episodes are in Unsolved Mysteries on Netflix?

Volume one of Unsolved Mysteries will be released on Netflix on Wednesday, July 1.

There are 12 episodes in total and the series has been split into two halves known as volume one and two.

On Wednesday, only the first six episodes will be available to watch, with the remaining six dropping at a later date.

All six episodes will be available to stream and download in one go, allowing true-crime fans to binge-watch the series.

The new Unsolved Mysteries comes from the show’s original creators Terry Dunn Meurer and John Cosgrove and is produced by the same team behind Netflix’s Stranger Things.

This time around things are a little different, as the series will cover international mysteries instead of solely US cases.

The original series had shorter episodes devoted to several different unsolved crimes and paranormal activity.

Instead, the rebooted version will dedicate an entire hour to one unsolved case per episode.

The late Robert Stack hosted the original series of Unsolved Mysteries.

Sadly, Stack died in 2003 of heart failure. He was 84-years-old.

The rebooted series does not feature a host, with Muuere telling TV Insider: “We feel it’s impossible to fill Robert Stack’s shoes.”
