What if one dead body kept popping up throughout time? That’s the intriguing premise of Netflix’s upcoming mystery series, Bodies, for which the streamer has released its first official teaser trailer.

In Bodies, four detectives, living in four different eras – DI Edmond Hillinghead in1890, DS Karl Whiteman in 1941, DS Sahara Hasan in 2023, and DS Maplewood in 2053 – find the body of the same murder victim in London’s Whitechapel. They soon come to realize their investigations have landed them in the middle of an impossible conspiracy spanning over 160 years.

The eight-episode series, which stars Stephen Graham, Shira Haas (Unorthodox), Jacob Fortune-Lloyd (The Queen’s Gambit, The Great), Kyle Soller (Andor), and Amaka Okafor (The Sandman), is based on the DC and Vertigo graphic novel of the same name from creator Si Spencer. The cast is also rounded out by Tom Mothersdale, Michael Jibson, Derek Riddel, Emily Barber and Gabriel Howell, playing a younger version of Graham’s Elias Mannix. Torchwood’s Paul Tomalin serves as series creator, with episodes directed by Marco Kreutzpaintner and Haolu Wang.

Watch the teaser trailer for Bodies below, ahead of its premiere on October 19th, when all eight episodes will release to Netflix at once.
