If You Loved 'Unsolved Mysteries' Fans Are Saying You Should Watch 'Forensic Files' Next

If you've already binge-watched Netflix's Unsolved Mysteries and you're looking for another true crime series to scoff your way through, then we have just the thing.

Yep, die hard fans of the Netflix revamp are suggesting you should try Forensic Files next - and they certainly have good reviews of the show.

Speaking on a Reddit forum about Unsolved Mysteries, one viewer said they were "looking for something in a similar style with a resolution" - because, you know, it's damn frustrating getting to the end of an episode and still not knowing whodunnit.

And they were flooded with suggestions to watch Forensic Files.

Many others also echoed support for Forensic Files in the comments. So, what is the show all about, and how can you watch it?!

The series, which originally aired on CBS, was once known as Medical Detectives, and ran for 21 seasons, before getting picked up and revamped into Forensic Files II across the pond this year.

Similar to Untold Mysteries, it's an American documentary-style TV programme that shows how forensic scientists play a pivotal role in solving "violent crimes, mysterious accidents, and outbreaks of illness".

To give you a flavour of what to expect, one creepy episode features the case of murder victim Summer Baldwin - who was found dead and stuffed in a suitcase in a Texas landfill.

It also looks at Dr. John Schneeberger, who managed to get away unpunished for many years by going to extreme levels to cover up DNA evidence, and the death of the List family in 1971, after their bodies were strategically placed by someone from their own flesh and blood, who evaded capture for over 18 years.

Forensic Files II is only available on US channel HLN and on Hulu for Hulu Live subscribers.

The revamp of Unsolved Mysteries was masterminded by the creators of Stranger Things, and is a reboot of the NBC and CBS series that ran for 12 years between 1987 and 1999.

The original show cracked open an incredible 260 unsolved cases, and the new format blends its signature elements with a more modern and immersive kind of storytelling.

Each episode explores an unsolved case, using a combination of re-enactments, interviews and archive footage to delve into the mystery.

Along the way, you can expect testimony from journalists, detectives, friends and family members.

It's a good time to be a true crime addict.
