The series first aired on television in 1987, but was cancelled 10 years ago after more than 500 episodes had been made; fortunately, it has proven to be a mammoth hit at its new streaming home.

Viewers have been gripped by the show’s fascinating and tragic cases, with volume two including the heart-wrenching episode titled Stolen Kids, as well as Tsunami Spirits, which focuses on reported ghost sightings in Japan.

The upcoming podcast spin-off will follow a similar format to the main series, featuring the original theme music, a narrator and interviews with the people involved in each case.

Unsolved Mysteries co-creator Terry Dunn Meurer will be an executive producer on the show, which will be co-produced by premium podcasting company Cadence13.

According to Deadline, the weekly podcast series will launch in early 2021, although Netflix‘s streaming show is yet to be officially renewed for a third season.

“Cosgrove/Meurer Productions is thrilled to be partnering with Cadence13 to present all new unsolved mysteries to podcast listeners,” Meurer told Deadline. “There are an incredible number of cases that we hope to solve through the podcast.”
