Plot Synopsis

After a successful operation by the Thames River Police to apprehend a gang of opium smugglers, a child's corpse is discovered. Inspector John Marlott is horrified to discover that it's not actually a child, but a grotesque assembly of human body parts. Marlott goes on the hunt for the killer behind this abomination, taking him into the dark corners of Georgian London, an underworld of prostitution, drug smuggling, bodysnatching, murder for profit and other vices. One thing is certain -- a demonic power is at work in the city, apparently attempting to reanimate the dead in a curious parody of "Frankenstein." Marlott teams up with Nightingale to pursue clues among London's body snatchers, and they become embroiled in the raging political debate between science and religion. Then, making the acquaintance of writer Mary Shelley, Marlott looks into the possibility that the killer he seeks was inspired by her novel "Frankenstein." THE FRANKENSTEIN CHRONICLES had its U.S. premiere on Tuesday, February 20, 2018 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, as Netflix released the first two six-episode seasons.
