New York, NY (May 17, 2022)—Leading premium podcast studio, Cadence13, an Audacy company, and Cosgrove/Meurer Productions, the creators and producers of the Emmy-nominated series Unsolved Mysteries, today announced that the Unsolved Mysteries podcast is back for Season Two with 40 all new episodes.
The podcast, based on the long-running hit television broadcast series and popular Netflix streaming series, launches on May 18, 2022 everywhere podcasts are available. Listen and follow the show here: Unsolved Mysteries.
Produced and directed by Cosgrove/Meurer Productions and Cadence13, and narrated by award-winning voice actor Steve French, Unsolved Mysteries presents all-new unsolved cases from the vast Unsolved Mysteries database—including unsolved murders, missing persons, fugitives, mysterious creatures, and the paranormal—with each episode taking a deep dive into one specific mystery. In addition, listeners will hear updates on select cases explored in Season One.
“Cosgrove/Meurer Productions is thrilled to continue its successful collaboration with Cadence13 to present 40 more ‘mystery’ podcasts in Season Two, in the hope that someone, somewhere, has a lead that will help solve these cases,” said Terry Dunn Meurer, co-creator and executive producer, Unsolved Mysteries, Cosgrove/Meurer Productions.
“It's been a pleasure gearing up for a new season of Unsolved Mysteries with the wonderful team at Cosgrove/Meurer. We can't wait to share the latest episodes of this iconic brand with the world,” said Chris Corcoran, Chief Content Officer and Founding Partner, Cadence13.
Each week, the series features family members who have experienced mysterious events in their lives and law enforcement officials and forensic experts who work tirelessly to solve these cases. The cases profiled also include people who have experienced paranormal activity. All episodes of the Unsolved Mysteries podcasts end with a call-to-action directing listeners to the Unsolved Mysteries website— unsolved.com —to provide clues that could help solve the mysteries.
The Unsolved Mysteries podcast features all the ingredients that have made this series a massive television hit for decades: the original theme music, a narrator who guides listeners through the twists and turns of each mystery, and heartfelt interviews with individuals involved in the cases.
Critical acclaim for the Unsolved Mysteries podcast includes The New York Times: “addictive….[a]…faithful audio rendering of the franchise, featuring weekly half-hour mysteries full of ghost stories, disappearances, demonic possessions and more.”
Since its premiere in January 1987, Unsolved Mysteries has been one of the longest-running programs in the history of television, and the first series to introduce an audience-interactive “call-to-action” that requests viewer tips to help solve real cases. Of the more than 1,300 mysteries profiled in over 230 episodes, over 260 cases have been solved, including the capture of wanted fugitives. More than 100 families have been reunited with lost loved ones, seven wrongly convicted individuals have been exonerated and released, and cases involving missing persons, missing heirs, murder, fraud, and amnesia have been closed. The series has received six Emmy nominations and numerous commendations from law enforcement agencies, including the FBI and U.S. Marshals Service.
The Unsolved Mysteries podcast is executive produced by Terry Dunn Meurer, the co-creator of the original series, and Chris Corcoran, Chief Content Officer and Founding Partner, Cadence13.
