When I got the invite to watch the screeners for the upcoming season Unsolved Mysteries, I couldn’t reply fast enough. I grew up watching the original and while I am currently watching the other two seasons, I can say…season 3 looks even better.

Before we get to my top 5 reasons to watch, let’s check out the trailer.
Top 5 reasons to watch Unsolved Mysteries Vol 3:
- the stories — everything from a group UFO siting and paranormal activity to missing loved ones, unexplained deaths, and a “suicide” riddled with evidence of foul play
- the participants — not only do the stories come straight from family/friends, but there are a journalists and experts interviewed as well
- the storytelling — a mix of interviews and recreations, the story unfolds in a cohesive (and sometimes deliciously slow) way
- the mystery — okay, so it’s in the title, but I was a little stunned that some of these stories are still unsolved
- the nostalgia — I love that the theme song has been updated, but remains the same and the flash of Robert Stack in the opening was a nice touch
Huge thanks to Netflix for the invite to watch. Unsolved Mysteries Volume 3 is going to be released over three weeks. Episodes 1-3 drop October 18, 4-6 on October 25, and 7-9 on November 1.
