In 2017, John Cosgrove, co-creator of the original series with Terry Dunn Meurer, said he was actively working on a reboot. The original Unsolved Mysteries series ran from 1987 to 2010 and included more than 500 episodes.
As with the original series, investigators will be looking to the viewers for help in solving cases. The show will use a documentary-style format with re-enactments of the reported events taking place on screen. Each episode will focus on one mystery. The show was picked up for brief stints on CBS (between 1997 and 1999) and Lifetime (between 2001 and 2002) before its eventual cancellation, with almost all of its episodes hosted by veteran character actor Robert Stack. A new cancellation resulted in the show returning in 2001 and 2002 on Lifetime, and then yet again from 2008 to 2010 on Spike. Cosgrove, Levy, and Josh Barry will serve as executive producers, with Robert Wise co-executive producing and showrunning alongside Meurer. After nine years on air, it made the switch to CBS for two seasons before it was cancelled due to poor ratings.
