If you’ve devoted a decent portion of your 2020 to binge watching Netflix until 2am every night with a bowl of ice cream, then… SAME.
While there certainly hasn’t been much to celebrate this year, particularly for those of us in Melbourne who have been in lock down for what seems like 726 years, the resurrection of beloved 80’s/90’s true crime series Unsolved Mysteries on Netflix deserves its own party popper moment. I inhaled the 6 eps of season 1 during two late night binges next to my snoring husband and they were OUTSTANDING. Creepy and heartbreaking, but outstanding nonetheless.
If you enjoyed season 1, or are just a fan of true crime or very weird unexplained shit, then prepare to experience some degree of lubrication in your jocks when I tell you that season two of Unsolved Mysteries has dropped on Netflix. If episode titles like Tsunami Spirits, Stolen Kids, Lady in the Lake, Washington Insider Murder, A Death in Oslo and Death Row Fugitive are anything to go by, we’re in for a seriously haunting ride.
Check out the trailer…
As with the first season which premiered in July, they’ll be a total of 6 eps in Volume 2.
Of course, the most frightening and tragic part of Unsolved Mysteries is that all the cases are true, which means there are friends and families out there who are desperate to find out what happened to their loved ones. Co-creator Terry Dunn Meurer told the New York Post, “Netflix is the perfect place – we can produce international stories and can also reach out to a worldwide audience to try and solve mysteries in different countries.”
Here’s hoping these eps will lead to some kind of justice and closure for victims and their families, perhaps even via a keen-eyed armchair Columbo like one of us.
Unsolved Mysteries Volume 2 is available on Netflix worldwide now.
