Cracow Monsters Synopsis

The 8 episode series follows a young girl Aleksandra who is haunted by her past and forced to join a mysterious professor Zawadzki but the things took an ugly turn when the experiments of professor lead to the formation of blue hue grotesque creatures and deities of intrigue from Slavic mythology.


The series looks interesting at first but it is not as better as it is hyped. At the end of the day, you will find the film has great monsters, grunge vibes but there are certain awkward points that make the film pointless. KraKow monsters is based on a Polish folklore like British Robin Hood Series but it is delivered in a chaotic way.

Moreover, the characters have tried so hard to depict adult coolness but failed. The portrayal somehow joins the body and soul of the show together have to say that the writing was really poor. Just try to imagine yourself as a child. There were certain plot holes and some characters like The Professor seems immature.

Most users decided to stop watching the episode after episode 4 because it only worsened after that. The stupid plot development come into affect and the dull, gloomy and witty dialogues were on the rise in Krakow Monsters.

Too many parts that are not easily tracked and connected. Some parts seem disconnected. The support characters could add much more if they were given deeper characterizations. All of the actors seemed to constantly be ambivalent toward each other: frenemies. No Matter what happened in the series, it has become one of the best shows to watch on Netflix right now.

Will there be a Cracow Monsters Season 2?

Not officially confirmed but a second season of Krakow monsters can happen in the future. As the series is rocking over the screens and is getting popular among EU peoples due to its Slavic mythology. Moreover, the first season is ended on a cliffhanger leaving room for a season 2, sooner or later, a new season of this series will be released on Netflix with another eight episodes.

What to expect from Season 2 of Cracow Monsters?
