This is a live article and will be updated as new details come our way.
The gripping Netflix series "Bodies" took us on a journey through time, with four detectives investigating the same body across different periods – 1890, 1941, 2023, and 2053. ."Bodies" is based on the mind-bending graphic novel by Si Spencer. It's a unique police procedural drama with a time-twisting twist. The official synopsis reads: "When a body – the same body – is found on Longharvest Lane in London's East End in 1890, 1941, 2023, and 2053, one detective from each period must investigate." The first season left us with questions, and fans are eager to know if there will be a second season. In this article, we delve into what "Bodies" is all about, and discuss the possibility of a season 2, the potential cast, and what the plot might entail. We've also done an ending explainer which you can check out here.
Renewal Status: Most Likely Ended
According to Netflix, "Bodies" is advertised as a limited series, suggesting there might not be many more episodes. However, series creator Paul Tomalin leaves room for hope. He stated, "The characters were brought to an end. But that being said, if it's a ridiculous hit and people are storming Netflix [for more], we left that ellipsis just in case, with a very exciting idea that does justice to the set up and develops it further." So, while it's not confirmed, the door for a season 2 remains ajar.
If "Bodies" were to return for a second season, we could expect to see most of the main cast returning, including:
- Amaka Okafor as Shahara Hasan
- Jacob Fortune-Lloyd as Charles Whiteman
- Kyle Soller as Alfred Hillinghead
- Shira Haas as Iris Maplewood
- Tom Mothersdale as Gabriel Defoe
However, we might bid farewell to Stephen Graham's character, Elias Mannix, given the events of the first season. No spoilers, but Elias's fate is entwined with a significant twist in the story.
The first season of "Bodies" concluded with a tantalizing twist, leaving room for speculation about the plot of a potential second season. Without giving too much away, the ending saw Shahara travel back in time to prevent Elias from triggering a significant event, altering the course of history and potentially causing Elias to cease to exist.
In the final scene, we witness Shahara conversing with a taxi driver, who is revealed to be Iris Maplewood. Additionally, the acronym 'KYAL' (standing for 'Know You Are Loved') emerges in the London city skyline. This leaves fans with numerous questions and theories.
If there is a season 2, it's possible that Iris, Shahara, and the remaining detectives will need to work together once again to prevent the existence of 'KYAL.' The possibilities are endless, and the potential for more mind-bending time travel adventures is certainly enticing.
While "Bodies" Season 2 has not been officially confirmed, the creator's statement keeps the hopes alive for fans. The first season of "Bodies" delivered a unique and gripping storyline that left us with more questions than answers. If the series does return, viewers can anticipate a thrilling continuation of the time-twisting mystery, with familiar faces and new twists. Until then, fans can rewatch the first season and speculate on the enigmatic future of "Bodies."
