Bodies Bodies Bodies may have been a dark, comedic take on the slasher genre, but Netflix has a new murder-mystery with a miniseries called Bodies and it has a very interesting twist.
Check out the trailer here:
The official description reads:
Four detectives in four different time periods of London find themselves investigating the same murder.
Stephen Graham (Boardwalk Empire) is no doubt the biggest name attached to the series, but he’s also joined by some impressive talent with Shira Haas, Amaka Okafor, Kyle Soller, and Jacob Fortune-Lloyd.
The series was created by Paul Tomalin, who has worked on projects like Shameless, The Frankenstein Chronicles, and No Offence. The show is also based on a comic from Vertigo of the same name written by Si Spencer with art from Phil Winslade, Meghan Hetrick, Dean Ormston, and Tula Lotay.
Since the series is being described as a limited one, we should expect everything to be tied up in a neat little bow by the finale. It would probably be a huge hang-up if we got to the end only to find we have to wait for another cliffhanger by the end of the show.
If anything, Bodies does give a very interesting twist to the genre. It does seem that there is some kind of sci-fi magic involved, but it’s interesting that we would have to see several time periods try to solve a mystery and watch how each detective tries to piece together their information with the others ones coming before and after.
I’m on the edge of my seat already, and it’s great we don’t have to wait too long. All eight episodes of Bodies are set to launch on Netflix this Oct. 19.
