Bodies creator reveals future of show as Stephen Graham thriller tops Netflix charts | The Sun

STEPHEN Graham has opened up about the future of his new show Bodies, which has recently premiered on Netflix.

The crime drama with an A-list cast has amassed a lot of fans since it came out on the streaming platform.

But show creator Paul Tomalin has revealed that he has no plans to renew the series for a second season.

He told Hello magazine that in his original pitch to Netflix the plot only extended for eight episodes, and it was important for him to wrap the series up without any cliff-hangers.

The screenwriter said: "We went to Netflix like, 'This is one series, this is a one and done, we wanna close this off', because I think when you have such an amazing concept up front, you f*** your audience off if you don't solve it.

"As the viewer, I hate it when you get this amazing thing. And at the end it's like, 'Duh, duh, duh', and you're like 'Right so I've got to wait a year and a half'.

"We really wanted you to feel that you'd seen the red curtain at the end."

The fictional thriller centres around a murder being solved in London across four eras.

When the same body is discovered in the East End in four different time periods, detectives have to find a way to work out a conspiracy spanning over 150 years.

Paul went on to say that while the original concept reaches a conclusion in season one of Bodies, he wouldn't totally rule out a second series.

He added: "That being said, when you see the back end, there's certainly a dot dot dot. But the premise that the show sets comes to an end."

The star-studded cast includes Shira Hass starring as a detective living in 2053, Kyle Soller as detective inspector Alfred Hillinghead from 1890, and Amaka Okafor from Greatest Days and The Responder.
