Harlan Coben has become a big name in the world of crime drama through his collaborations with Netflix, which began with Safe and The Stranger and continue this month with The Woods.


Set in Poland, the series follows a Warsaw prosecutor haunted by the memory of his sister, who went missing 25 years ago and whose whereabouts remains unknown.

Over the course of the series, events are set in motion that finally get him the answers he needs, but is there more to the story than meets the eye?

Here's everything we know so far about a potential second season of The Woods...

Will there be The Woods season 2 on Netflix?

There's no word just yet about whether there will be a second season of The Woods on Netflix. The series fully adapts Harlan Coben's 2007 novel, so if it were to continue it would have to branch off into entirely new territory.

The Woods is only the second Polish original series from Netflix, preceded by alternate history drama 1983, which is yet to be renewed for another outing.

Coben's previous Netflix shows Safe and The Stranger also seem to have followed the one-and-done format, so that suggests there may not be much hope for The Woods...

What could happen in a second season of The Woods?

If The Woods were to return for a second season, there are unresolved plot threads that could be picked up.

Most of all, fans will be keen to find out more about Kamila's fate. Was that her hiding out in the nunnery at the end? And if so, what has her life been like for the past 25 years?

Whether it is her or not, Paweł's life is about to change radically. Leaving his job as Warsaw prosecutor behind, he now faces the challenge of bringing his late wife's charity back after it was embroiled in a very public scandal.

That will be no small task, especially since he made an enemy of one of Poland's most well known broadcasters.

Unclear on what happened at the end of the first season? Here's The Woods ending explained.
