Each episode will focus on one mystery and once again will look to viewers to help aid investigators in closing the book on long outstanding cases," Netflix . The company is taking on this refresh alongside the show's original creators and the producers of Netflix original, Stranger Things.

It chronicled over 1,000 stories of crime, lost love, and missing persons, and received six Emmy nominations—so fans of the classic thriller have a lot to say about the reboot.
