We have a new trailer for Unsolved Mysteries volume 2. The show is still technically in its first season, with Netflix opting to split it up into two batches of six episodes each. The second, six-episode installment is coming our way just in time for the Halloween season and we now have our first good look at what is coming down the pipeline. As promised, there will be a ghost story this time around but, as we can see from this trailer, there is much more to investigate in these upcoming episodes.
The trailer starts with some voiceover raising an interesting question; "Why is it important to find out why a person died nearly 25 years ago?" Creepy imagery of a poorly-lit room and a soaking wet person approaching a door plays as the question is posed. We are offered glimpses at each episode, including the alleged ghost story in question. Footage from the various reenactments is spliced together with interview footage and old videos to offer viewers a taste of these new cases. Though it seems the filmmakers are trying to play things pretty close to the chest as they don't reveal too much, in terms of specifics, about the individual episodes. It is all very dark and ominous.
When Netflix decided to bring back the classic show they decided to change the format a bit. Whereas the original run featured Robert Stack as the host, this version does away with hosted segments entirely. Instead, it's shot with more interviews and a more modern style that suits true-crime obsessives. Original creators Terry Dunn Meurer and John Cosgrove are on board. Meurer serves as showrunner with Cosgrove on board as an executive producer alongside Shawn Levy and Josh Barry. The original series ran for 11 seasons, airing 260 episodes. There is no word yet on whether or not Unsolved Mysteries season 2 will happen. But, given the popularity of the first season so far, that seems like a fairly safe bet.
Unsolved Mysteries volume 2 explores more unexplained disappearances, tragic events, and bizarre occurrences. In the six new episodes, we will explore what led to the death of a well-respected political insider. Elsewhere; was an unidentified woman found dead in Oslo, Norway, part of a secret intelligence operation? Did the sudden loss of lives in Japan's 2011 tsunami result in supernatural encounters? Viewers may hold vital clues that can help solve these cold cases. Detectives, journalists and family members offer theories on this new batch of mysteries.
Netflix dropped the first half of season 1 in July and it quickly rocketed to the top of the service's daily streaming charts. Credible tips for some of the cases in the first batch of episodes were also received within days of the show's debut. The revival series comes from the creators of the original docuseries, Cosgrove/Meurer Productions, and 21 Laps Entertainment, the producers of Stranger ThingsUnsolved Mysteries returns on October 19 on the Netflix streaming service.
