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.[1] The series premiered on Netflix on 12 June 2020. It is the second Polish-language series produced for Netflix, after 1983.[2]


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.

In August 2018, Netflix signed a five-year contract to adapt fourteen crime novels by Harlan Coben.[4] In December 2019, ATM Grupa announced that it had wrapped up filming of the series and that it would be released on Netflix in 2020.[5] The Woods is the second Polish-language series made for the streaming platform and the fourth Netflix production created by Coben, following The Five, Safe, and The Stranger.
