“Dead Boy Detectives” Trailer Unveils Netflix’s Supernatural Sleuthing Series

Netflix has revealed the trailer for Dead Boy Detectives, which finds two sleuthing teenagers who are committed to helping folks struggling with intrusive ghosts and mean-spirited demons. The catch? These two teens are not among the living, as the title suggests.

The trailer introduces us to Edwin Payne (George Rexstrew) and Charles Rowland (Jayden Revri), our two heroes behind the Dead Boy Detectives agency. Edwin and Charles have found each other in death, even though they died decades apart, have become both best friends and partners. The strength of their bond has been tested, again and again, by challenges us mere mortals don’t have to face, including facing down Death itself. 

Yet Edwin and Charles aren’t alone—they’re aided by friends like the clairvoyant Crystal (Kassius Nelson) and her friend Niko (Yuyu Kitamura), who help our determined detectives take on a slew of bizarre paranormal cases.

Dead Boy Detectives is part of Netflix’s Sandman Universe, which is based on the comic series from Neil Gaiman. The series is run by Steve Yockey and Beth Schwartz, who serve as showrunners. The series also stars Jenn Lyon, Briana Cuoco, Lukas Gage, David Iacono, and Ruth Connell.

Check out the trailer below. Dead Boy Detectives arrives on Netflix on April 25:
