The series focuses on discussing some controversial and unsolved issues like the alleged demonic possessions, Haunted places, crimes and historical occurrences. Thanks to the multiple views the series has garnered on the internet, it has become BuzzFeed’s most-watched show.
Following the rate of views the series has gained, Shane and Ryan decided to create a YouTube channel titled the BuzzFeed Unsolved Network. BuzzFeed Unsolved was then divided into two- Unsolved True Crime and Unsolved Supernatural While the former covers unsolved crimes, the latter discusses paranormal mysteries. Buzzfeed even had to renew the show for its ninth season which will be aired in the later days of 2018.
The popularity of the BuzzFeed Unresolved brought into existence three groups namely the “Boogaras” which consists of a group of fans who share Bergera’s believe in the existence of the paranormal; the “Shaniacs” who share Shane’s scepticism; and the “Shitfishes” who do not share any of the two beliefs.
