THE MIRE MILLENNIUM on Netflix is season 3 of the very popular Polish series (org. title: Rojst). The seasons have been set in different periods, and now it all ends with these 6 episodes. Read our full The Mire season 3 review here and watch it on Netflix now!

THE MIRE MILLENNIUM is now on Netflix to end the Polish crime thriller series (org. title: Rojst). Season 1 was set in the early 1980s and showed us how journalists solved crime by investigating when the police couldn’t (or rather wouldn’t). Then season 2 continued 13 years later in 1997 with some of the same characters and several new ones.

With The Mire season 3, we’re at the cusp of the new millennium, but to connect all the dots (from all three seasons of the trilogy), we need to go back even further. The root of evil is to be found back in the 1960s. This makes for a lot of interesting and gorgeous scenery. However, you also need to really pay attention during all six episodes!

The underbelly of Poland

I’ve enjoyed watching all three seasons of The Mire (org. title: Rojst) as it has shown me a lot about Poland. Obviously, this is fiction, but seeing several aspects of a country I’ve never been to intrigues me. I love how we see these characters subjected to various rules throughout the different decades. Yet also learning how to bend the rules. It’s awesome!

We’ve seen brave men and women alongside the most brutal and sinister criminals. Just as we do in stories from any other country in the world. To me, it seems like a nuanced and honest look at a country that has been through so many changes over relatively few years. Especially around the 1980s and 1990s, but also going back to the 1960s.

And in this third and final season, the entire span of decades is at the heart of everything. In The Mire Millennium, cases from previous seasons are revisited and get more context which in turn gives new meaning to it all. It also means the past will finally catch up with several main characters.

Many of them have experienced brutal tragedies that they are still recovering from, but this has also always been part of The Mire. The characters get deeply involved with dangerous situations and pay the price. Or, actually, far too often their loved ones have paid the price.

It all comes together in The Mire season 3

With The Mire Millennium, it all finally comes together as secrets and connections are revealed. Throughout three seasons, we’ve followed several characters and with this season, we’re getting some much-needed answers.

That also means you’ll be seeing a lot of recurring characters. After all, everything is connected. Recurring characters over several seasons and decades also means returning cast members. However, just as with the second season, there are also new characters.

Finally, we go back to the 1960s to discover the origin of sinister secrets, so other actors are on board to play younger versions of familiar characters.

Returning cast members include Andrzej Seweryn, Dawid Ogrodnik, Magdalena Różczka, Łukasz Simlat, Piotr Fronczewski, Janusz Gajos, Agnieszka Żulewska, Michał Pawlik, Ewelina Starejki, Marcin Bosak, Vanessa Aleksander, Wanda Marzec, Mikołaj Chroboczek, and Marianna Gierszewska.

Also joining the cast in season 3 are Filip Pławiak (The Defence), Tomasz Schuchardt (High Water), Konrad Eleryk (Infamy), Tomasz Sapryk (High Water), Wojciech Kalarus (Lesson Plan), Maria Kania (The Convict), Michalina Łabacz (The Teacher), and Antoni Sałaj (The Woods).

Watch The Mire season 3 on Netflix now!

If you’ve been watching The Mire this far, then obviously you’ll want to watch the final chapter as well. I do want to make it clear that it requires a lot of its viewers. I mean, there are quite a few years between these seasons being released. Still, there’s no “previously on”. Not even a little recap alongside the season trailers on Netflix.

Admittedly, I do watch a lot of series and movies. Still, I expect many viewers will feel as momentarily lost as I did. I simply had to stop and read a summary of the previous season, The Mire ’97. Once I was at it, I also read up on season 1 as I knew The Mire Millennium would tie all three seasons together.

I would recommend reading up on the previous seasons before you press play on episode 1 of The Mire Millennium. Having said that, I do still find this Polish series (org. title: Rojst) to be extremely impressive. And no, not just “for a Polish” production, but overall.

The Mire Millennium is on Netflix from February 28, 2024.

As the year 2000 draws near, officials investigate a local murder, a skeleton in Gronty forest and a string of horrifying abductions.

I write reviews and recaps on Heaven of Horror. And yes, it does happen that I find myself screaming, when watching a good horror movie. I love psychological horror, survival horror and kick-ass women. Also, I have a huge soft spot for a good horror-comedy. Oh yeah, and I absolutely HATE when animals are harmed in movies, so I will immediately think less of any movie, where animals are harmed for entertainment (even if the animals are just really good actors). Fortunately, horror doesn't use this nearly as much as comedy. And people assume horror lovers are the messed up ones. Go figure!
