One of the highly anticipated Spanish Netflix series of 2023 has finally come out. Burning Body was released on Netflix on Sept. 8, and it’s already secured a spot on the streamer’s top 10 TV shows list.

After a police officer’s charred remains are found inside the trunk of a burnt-out car, police begin to investigate the murder, and what is brought to light is a network of toxic relationships, deceit, sexual scandals, and violence involving several police officers.
