Netflix is inviting those who love mysteries, true crime, aliens, and the paranormal to gather ‘round and check out a trailer for the return of Unsolved Mysteries. That’s right, after a two-year hiatus, the chilling production is back to deliver more stories of unsolved cases and happenings that will rattle you to your core.
The trailer that Netflix dropped today reveals a slew of new tales of the bizarre ranging from murders to disappearances to alien encounters and even hauntings. Opening with the eerie piano intro that we so know and love from the original Raymond Burr-hosted series, the teaser immediately dives into the baffling cases that audiences will learn about over the nine-episode season. It’s clear that missing people will be the show’s focus as we hear from families whose loved ones disappeared under head-scratching circumstances; this is a great thing, as getting the word out on missing persons is an excellent and effective tool in eventually finding them.
In a different move, Volume 3 of Unsolved Mysteries will be dropped over a three-week period with three episodes airing per week. Episode titles suggest the new season will feature a mix of true crime and paranormal mysteries. This is a shake-up from the prior seasons, which were made available all at once – creating the perfect binging situation. It’s unclear as to why Netflix is choosing to go this route, and while we would love to stay up all night and, by morning, quit our jobs to become armchair detectives, it’s probably for the best that the episodes will be spread out.
One episode will look at the death of Tiffany Valiante. A photo shared by Netflix indicates that episode 1 of Unsolved Mysteries Volume 3 will explore the question of what really happened to Tiffany Valiante, a New Jersey teen who died after being struck by a train in 2015. Her death was ruled a suicide, according to NJ.com, but her family has questioned that finding. They believe the evidence in the case was mishandled and that Valiante’s death was not adequately investigated.
Here’s the official synopsis for the new season:
The iconic and gripping series returns with a three-week event featuring more unexplained deaths, baffling disappearances, and bizarre paranormal activity. Unsolved Mysteries Vol 3 is from the creators of the original docuseries Cosgrove/Meurer Productions and 21 Laps Entertainment, the producers of Stranger Things.
Check out the trailer below, and watch the new episodes of Unsolved Mysteries on October 18th, October 25th, and November 1st.
