The Girl in the Woods is the latest television series from Crypt TV as part of a collaboration with Peacock, the NBCUniversal streaming service. All eight episodes of the new series will be available to watch tonight on the platform. Below you’ll find all the details about the show.
If you’re a fan of shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Xena the Warrior Princess, I highly recommend giving The Girl in the Woods a chance. It’s a fun, scary series with excellent queer representation and practical monsters. Written by Jane Casey Modderno, who also helmed the other Crypt TV project, The Birch, The Girl in the Woods effortlessly combines humor and horror into an energetic series with a rich mythology.
The series stars Stefanie Scott (Carrie), Misha Osherovich (Nolan), Sofia Bryant (Tasha), Will Yun Lee as (Arthur Dean), Kylie Liya Page as (Sara), Reed Diamond as (Hosea) and Leonard Roberts as (Khalil). Krysten Ritter directed the first four episodes and Jacob Chase the latter half of the season.

The Girl in the Woods synopsis
The Girl in the Woods revolves around a small, blue-collar rustbelt town on the verge of something dark and otherworldly. Locals are protected from this evil by a cult-like colony dwelling in the woods. This group guards a door in the woods that is the only thing standing between the people and the ancient evil dwelling on the other side.
The door is sort of like a portal to another dimension, and it’s the colony’s job to prevent it from opening. At the center of it all is a teenage girl named Carrie who becomes swept up in the dangers of her job. She ends up befriending two local teens, and the trio soon becomes entangled in monster-slaying and attempts to protect the town from death and ruin.
