Since 2013, Felicitas Woll has been starring as Commissioner Pia Kirchhof (from 2018 Pia Sander) at irregular intervals in the TV adaptations of Nele Neuhaus' bestselling crime novels. Parallel to this, she has also been working for other TV productions, many of which show her in the leading role.

In 2016 she was seen in several TV movies, including in the female lead role of the romantic comedy "Weil ich Dich liebe" ("Because I Love You …"), which follows the ups and downs of a couple from the moment they meet until the divorce date. A year later, the drama "Nackt. Das Netz vergisst nie" was broadcast, in which Woll plays a mother fighting for justice when her daughter becomes the victim of revenge pornography. In the TV adaptation of the bestseller "Das Nebelhaus" (2017), she is a journalist, who investigates a mysterious rampage that happened two years ago on a lonely island in the Baltic Sea. In the TV drama "Kranke Geschäfte" ("The Placebo Effect", 2019), directed by Urs Egger, she embodies a mother whose daughter suffers from multiple sclerosis and is offered to act as a test candidate for new drugs.

Also in 2019, after several years of working for TV exclusively, she was back in front of the camera for a feature film: In Franziska Meyer Price's "Berlin, Berlin", which is a follow-up of the successful TV series of the same name, she revisits the role of Lolle, who finds herself exposed to great emotional chaos when her ex-boyfriend Sven confesses his love for her at her wedding party of all places.
