Netflix's new thriller The Woods will be your next TV obsession

We're in the depths of the dreary grey days of winter.

And as the days and nights continue to just get colder and colder, the temptation to stay in with a mug of hot chocolate and watch the latest TV series' is seriously real.

Thankfully, Netflix have come to the rescue with a number of binge-worthy series' so far this year - including The Stranger, based on the book of the same name by Harlan Coben.

Between American Crime Story, The Ted Bundy Tapes, You, and Dirty John, it's pretty safe to say that there's no shortage of crime and thriller series' on the streaming service.

However, The Stranger has been one of our favourites so far -  which is why we were so excited when we found out another book by Coben is being turned into a Netflix series.

Eagle-eyed Netflix users found that if you search for The Woods, a listing for a new thriller - adapted from another of Coben's novels - comes up.

"A Warsaw prosecutor's hopes rise when a body is found and linked to his sister's disappearance 25 years earlier," the description for the series reads. No other information - including a cast or a release date - is available just yet.

And when asked about the series on social media, he suggested putting it on your 'remind me' list as soon as possible.


The six-part series was first announced last year, and is another collaboration between Harlan Coben and Netflix, besides the British series The Stranger and Spanish series El Inocente.

Set in two different timespans (1994 and 2019), The Woods tells the story of a Warsaw prosecutor, Paweł Kopiński, who is still grieving the loss of his sister from twenty five years ago – the night she walked into the woods at a summer camp and was never seen again.

But now, the discovery of a homicide victim – a boy who vanished along with Paweł's sister – reveals evidence that links him to her disappearance. As hope rises that his sister could still be alive, dangerous secrets from his family's past threaten to tear apart everything that Paweł has been trying to hold together.

“I’m so proud to be teaming up with this incredible cast and crew from Poland - and helping introduce their brilliant work to Netflix’s global audience," Coben said.
