Mysterious Creatures is a historical fiction which dramatizes encounters with cryptids that are prevalent in folklore. Basically it’s a fake news broadcast about cryptids that is satirical with bits of historical truth. The episodes are short because you don’t have that much time and we’re not that creative.
