Unfiction is featured multiple times in the 2023 film Missing, which is now on Netflix. Is Unfiction a real Netflix show?
Missing opens with a glimpse at the Unfiction episode made about the case from the 2018 film Searching regarding David Kim’s daughter, Margot Kim. Then, at the end of the movie, we see another episode of Unfiction, this time about the case of Grace Allen. Also, eagle-eyed viewers might have noticed a fun cameo from Scream and Yellowjackets star Jasmin Savoy Brown, who plays a version of Storm Reid’s character, June, in the second Unfiction episode.
Given that Unfiction is a big part of Missing and is mentioned several times even when it isn’t being shown onscreen, it’s understandable that some viewers might question whether or not the show is something real they can watch on Netflix after the movie.
Is Unfiction a real show?
Unfortunately, for anyone who went to look up Unfiction after finishing Missing, it’s not a real series. Unfiction was made for the film as a nod to the true crime community and the many documentaries and dramatizations that exist.
