Unsolved Mysteries debuted earlier this year on Netflix after more than a decade off-air. The documentary series is back with a different format, with the series premiering in two different ‘volumes’ consisting of six episodes. Fans are curious to know if there will be a third season or volume of Unsolved Mysteries. Express.co.uk has everything you need to know.
Will there be another series of Unsolved Mysteries?
At the moment, Netflix has not made any announcement on the future of Unsolved Mysteries.
The second instalment of six episodes premiered in early October 2020, so it is still early days for news of the show’s renewal.
Netflix can take up to six months to announce a decision on a show’s future, so true-crime fans could be waiting until 2021 for news of the show’s future.
The show’s renewal will depend on many factors including ratings and the schedules of the show creators John Cosgrove and Terry Dunn Meurer.

Unsolved Mysteries executive producer, Terry Dunn Meurer has spoken about her hopes for season three.
Speaking to Variety, Meurer said: “We just want to keep it going. We just want to keep following more cases.
“I still have as much hope as I did back when we did the first special that we’re going to solve a case.
“And I still get that same feeling of excitement when we do solve the case and we get some leads come in.”
Speaking separately to Newsweek, Meurer said: “We have ideas.
“We have some really great stories that we feel are strong stories. So, we are ready to tackle that.
“Production is starting to come back and with a lot of Covid protocol for sure.
“It takes some time for us to develop the stories and scout the story’s outline, the story’s people before we actually go into production.”
