New York City coroner Henry Morgan has a secret: he can’t die. (Or rather, he dies, but he doesn’t stay dead – he revives immediately after each “death.”) Henry has lived for over 200 years, and uses his lengthy life experience to help recently-widowed police detective Jo Martinez solve cases, using his vast knowledge and Sherlock-level powers of observation and deduction.
There was little content to concern parents in the first episode of Forever. Some of Henry’s “deaths” are a little gruesome, and as he is a coroner some graphic views of corpses and dissections are shown (though not as graphic as those typically seen in NCIS or CSI). With attractive leads and an unusual concept, Forever may appeal to both mystery fans and those of the fantasy genre.
Forever premieres Monday, September 22 at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
