The Woods (Polish: W głębi lasu) is a Polish mystery thriller television miniseries, based on the 2007 novel of the same name by Harlan Coben. The series premiered on Netflix on 12 June 2020. It is the second Polish-language series produced for Netflix, after 1983.


The story unfolds in two different time periods: August 1994 and September 2019. In 2019, Warsaw prosecutor Paweł Kopiński is called upon to identify the body of a murder victim who was found with newspaper clippings about him. The murder seems to be linked to the August 1994 summer camp where Paweł was a chaperone, during which two people were murdered and two others—including his sister Kamila—went missing without a trace.
