The series follows Edwin Payne (George Rexstrew) and Charles Rowland (Jayden Revri), “the brains” and “the brawn” behind the Dead Boy Detectives agency. Teenagers born decades apart who find each other only in death, Edwin and Charles are best friends and ghosts… who solve mysteries. They will do anything to stick together – including escaping evil witches, Hell and Death herself. With the help of a clairvoyant named Crystal (Kassius Nelson) and her friend Niko (Yuyu Kitamura), they are able to crack some of the mortal realm’s most mystifying paranormal cases.

Based on the comic series from Neil Gaiman, Dead Boy Detectives has been developed for television by Steve Yockey (Supernatural), who serves as co-showrunner alongside Beth Schwartz (Sweet Tooth) and is brought to you by Greg Berlanti. Jeremy Carver and Sarah Schechter also serve as executive producers.

The series also stars Jenn Lyon, Briana Cuoco, Lukas Gage, David Iacono and Ruth Connell.

The Dead Boy Detectives will be released on Netflix on 25 April.
