  • "Bodies" is a Netflix mystery drama about the same body appearing in multiple timelines.

  • It was created by Paul Tomalin and is based on Si Spencer's graphic novel of the same name.

  • Here's the show's main cast and who they play.

Netflix's "Bodies" kicks off with, well, a body.

In fact, several iterations of it: the same body appears in four different time periods — 1890, 1941, 2023, and 2053 — and four detectives attempt to solve the case in their respective eras. However, it quickly becomes clear that the mystery extends further than each of them thought.

Series creator Paul Tomalin described the show, which is based on the graphic novel of the same name by Si Spencer, as "mind-snapping" and genre-bending. Currently, all eight episodes are available to watch on Netflix.

Here's the main cast of "Bodies," and who they each play in the series.
