In the British Netflix series Bodies, four investigators from different eras are confronted with the same murder case. Whether in the year 1890, 1941, 2023 or in the future of the year 2053: In each time plane, the body of the same man is discovered in the London Borough of Whitechapel. Is there a time traveling killer behind it? This is one of the many puzzles to be solved in Bodies.

The series is based on a Comic template by Si Spencer from 2015, which was released by the DC imprint Vertigo. In addition to Stephen Graham (Boradwalk Empire), the exciting cast also includes Shira Haas, known from the Netflix series Unorthodox, and Kyle Soller, who most recently delighted Andor as Syril Karn in the Star Wars series. Other main actors: Jacob Fortune-Lloyd (The Queen’s Gambit) and Amaka Okafor (The Responder)

Series creator Paul Tomalin is behind the Netflix adaptation. The German filmmaker Marco Kreuzpaintner, who most recently directed the thriller Der Fall Collini with Elyas M’Barek and several episodes of the British time travel series The Lazarus Project, is responsible for directing.

When will the time travel thriller Bodies be available on Netflix?

All eight hour-long episodes of the new Bodies series will be on Netflix on October 19, 2023 published. Since the unusual crime format is a mini-series, you don’t have to worry that the series could be canceled prematurely after one season.
