Judging by its showrunners alone, we can already predict Dead Boy Detectives is the perfect fantasy-meets-horror-meets-mystery show of 2024, but for the skeptics out there, just know the show will also be part of The Sandman Universe for Netflix, so if you liked the 18+ series from 2022, buckle up.

Dead Boy Detectives follows the story of Edwin Payne and Charles Rowland, two dead teenagers born decades apart who, as ghosts, set up an agency — the Dead Boy Detectives agency… duh — to solve mysteries. According to Netflix’s synopsis for the show, Edwin and Charles “will do anything to stick together — including escaping evil witches, Hell, and Death herself.”

The two dead besties are not alone, though. They are joined by a clairvoyant named Crystal and her best friend Niko, who will help them solve some of the mortal realm’s most mystifying paranormal cases for their supernatural clientele.
