Bodkin Season 1 Storyline

Bodkin is a dark comedy thriller starring Will Forte as a podcaster. Audiences have never been so interested in true crime-based stories. This scary latest comedy sees Will Forte playing a podcaster inspecting the disappearance of three strangers in a rustic coastal town of Ireland. He makes a team of investigators to reveal the mystery, but shockingly, they discover a weirder and bigger story than they could ever have imagined.

Bodkin’s story will challenge our perception and reveal the stories we tell ourselves to validate our fears and justify our beliefs. Here’s everything you need to know about the seven episodes of Bodkin only on Netflix.

Is Bodkin Based On A Real Crime Podcast?

While the series is about the true-crime podcast, Bodkin is not based on a real crime story. However, the series posters exaggerate that the mystery thriller is based on a true story but have a note to say it’s been “overheard in the pub”. In an era of true crime podcasts, obsessions and morality behind the storyline, it’s been thought.

According to Tudum, Bodkin was written and created by the British man Jez Scharf, who explains the dearies as “a commentary on a story of violence.”

A fellow executive producer, Alex Metcalf, also says about the Bodkin, “It’s a fake place, it’s a fake town. It’s all fake people”. So now it’s clear that Bodkin is not a true-based crime podcast.

Jez Scharf will act as a lead writer of the series alongside Alex Metcalf. Mike O’Leary has also worked on the season’s writing project. Tonia Davis belonged to Higher Ground Productions and worked as executive producer of the Bodkin. Here are the first casting actors in the series.
