Bodies is the best new Netflix show of the fall of 2023. It premiered on Netflix on Oct. 19, 2023, and it’s already climbed up the Netflix Top 10 list to No. 1 just a week after its release. The series is based on the graphic of the same name by Si Spencer.
Bodies tells the story of three law enforcement officers who discover a dead body located in the same place decades apart. The series follows their investigations, which leads them on a wild goose chase to find who is responsible for the murder, as well as a larger, more sinister plot.
I had very little expectations heading into Bodies, but it’s so good! If you like shows like 1899 or Dark, you absolutely need to watch the new series. It keeps you on your toes and guessing from the first scene without being overly confusing.
On the plus side, Bodies is a limited series, which means it’s very unlikely to get a second season. It’s a full story in eight episodes. What more could you ask for?
