Six more Unsolved Mysteries episodes are slated for release on Netflix worldwide in October 2020. Here’s what we know about the second season of Unsolved Mysteries, and how you can stream even more older Mysteries episodes unresolved.
In case you missed it, Netflix has rebooted the classic series that delves into some of the biggest mysteries, from real crime to mysterious supernatural stories.

Netflix has labeled the new seasons in volumes rather than seasons, but to keep things simple, we’ll be calling volume two season two.
How has the series played so far on Netflix? Since its July 1 release, the series has catapulted the top 10 charts in several countries, including the United States, Australia, Canada, Mexico, and the United Kingdom.
Have Unsolved Mysteries been renewed for season two?
Yes! Before the first volume even dropped on Netflix, a second was in development. That’s because when Netflix initially ordered the episodes, they do so in a 12-episode bundle. So far we’ve had six episodes on Netflix, which has resulted in us doing some really quick math and stating that six more are on the way.
We’ve known for some time that Season 2 is coming at some point in 2020, the Unsolved Mysteries website further confirms this by saying, “In 2020 Netflix is releasing 12 new episodes of Unsolved Mysteries produced by Cosgrove / Meurer Productions and 21 Laps.
Often times when Netflix divides its seasons, you can wait anywhere from three to six months for new episodes to arrive on Netflix. This is exactly what is happening with Unsolved Mysteries with the next batch of episodes confirmed for release on Netflix on October 19, 2020.
In addition to the fact that there are more episodes on the way, the team behind the series is actively looking for more stories to cover in future episodes. Through the Unsolved website, you can submit stories or even a tip about a real mystery. You can also browse the case archives through the website!
In the meantime, unfortunately, the original series hosted by Robert Stack and Dennis Farina stays away from Netflix. Instead, you can find them (at least in the US) on Prime Video and Hulu. With any luck, when their licenses are renewed, Netflix chooses to get them back.
As for the alternatives, we recommend giving Haunted a try. It tells various firsthand accounts of horror stories with actors playing roles. It’s kind of funny at times, but it’s still a good cry. On the real crime front, La Disparition de Madeleine McCann and Making a Murderer are two excellent recommendations.
