New Netflix crime drama The Woods has arrived – and its creator has a message for viewers.

Harlan Coben – the man behind The Stranger and Safe – has returned with the new Polish drama following prosecutor Pawel Kopiński, whose sister's disappearance 30 years earlier is dredged up during a fresh homicide case.

The story is told across two different time periods – when Pawel’s sister and a boy went missing in 1994, and in 2019, when the boy reappears.

“As hope rises that his sister could still be alive, dangerous secrets from his family’s past threaten to tear apart everything that Pawel has been trying to hold together,” the synopsis reads.

Coben alerted his fans to the show’s Netflix premiere on Friday (12 June), but also urged them to choose subtitles over watching a dubbed version on offer by the streaming service.

Netflix gives you the choice to watch The Woods dubbed or subtitled,” he wrote, adding: I urge you to use subtitles, you do you. Rock on.”

Coben’s previous show, The Stranger, was released on Netflix in February. Both seriees are available to stream on Netflix now.
