The Snow Girl (S1/2023) Series:- a brief review

All of us (the common viewers), the parents, journalist (s), and the police get sucked into the idea of searching for the missing girl in The Snow Girl series. Its mystery kept us hooked, as it has quite a few time jumps, twists and turns. When the kidnapping of a young kid is a central plot in this series, it usually gets one hooked with its premises. The storyline is engaging but it is a disturbing tale about the world that we live in.

Wish, I could share the spoilers with you all here, but it will ruin your viewing pleasure. With a disturbing subject matter, they have used its cinematography to set up the sad and bleak mood in the show.

Also, the acting by the Spanish actress Milena Smit (as Miren Rojo – the protagonist) is likeable. Even the ensemble cast has done a praiseworthy job, to keep our attention intact.

As the Snow Girl show is only six episodes long in season one, it is a good crime mystery mini-series to binge-watch on any weekend. We think that you should check it out. As it is good for a one-time view.

Also, the good news is that Netflix has announced the second season of The Snow Girl show.

Focus:- bonus info. about the Miren in the two books

As its second season has been announced, allow me to speculate and share the details about the same. Please note, that we are only indulging in a bit of guesswork about its season two. Please note, that the names of the characters and the settings of the stories have been changed to make it more of a Spanish language series shot in Spain with Spanish characters.
