Yes, you read that right. If you loved The Stranger and Safe then you are going to love this news. Harlan Coben, the creator of both Netflix shows has teased us with a new series – and we can’t wait! And we don’t have long to wait either!

Coben, the writer of both books behind the Netflix hit’s, took to Twitter to announce a new thriller will be heading to the streaming service on June 12th. The six-part series called ‘The Woods’ looks just as exciting as the others, as it follows four teenagers who have got lost in the woods years before. The Woods is set in two different timelines, 1994 and 2019.

The book is filled with secrets, homicide, and a disappearance, meaning this drama will most definitely have us hooked like The Stranger and Safe did. Cohen spoke out about the news, as he said ‘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’.

We’re hoping The Woods is just as good!

Both Safe and The Stranger have been massive hits for Netflix, so it only made sense to adapt Cohen’s amazing work. The director of the thriller Leszek Dawid stated that ‘The Woods is a story full of secrets – a story you will want to follow’. With fewer episodes than Cohen’s previous thrillers, we can only imagine the Woods will be packed full of rollercoaster moments. Our heads already can’t take it!

We’re thankful that The Woods is dropping on Netflix, especially as most productions have been halted. With the pandemic currently ongoing, The Woods is set to thoroughly entertain us. This mystery has been described as ‘gripping’ and ‘fascinating’ – adjectives we like to hear! Don’t forget, The Woods drops on 12th June!
