Thai Cave Rescue, the limited series will premiere on Netflix on September 22, 2022. 

In 2018, 12 boys from the same football team decided to spend an afternoon with their coach exploring the Tham Luang caves in northern Thailand. When heavy rainfall flooded the caves and trapped them inside, what was supposed to be a fun excursion turned into a massive international rescue operation that transfixed the world. 

The series will explore the untold perspectives of the boys at the centre of the rescue. The streaming giant has partnered with filmmakers from Thailand and across the world for this new series.

Shot entirely in Thailand, the series features exclusive insights from the young members of the Wild Boars football team and their experiences at the limit of human endurance, as well as the experiences of their families and the vast global team that came together to save them.

Created by Michael Russell Gunn and Dana Ledoux Miller, the six-episode limited series is directed by Baz Poonpiriya and Kevin Tancharoen.

Director and executive producer Baz Poonpiriya said: “Thai Cave Rescue is the first opportunity for audiences worldwide to see the Tham Luang story in a new and more emotional light — centring the perspectives of the 12 Wild Boars, Coach Eak, and heroes like Saman “Ja Sam” Gunan, whose lives beyond the operation remain largely outside the public spotlight.”

“We began writing this show at the beginning of COVID-19 lockdowns in the United States. It became an unlikely source of comfort to tell a story that is such a poignant reminder that even though we are so often defined by our differences – in language, belief, or socio-economic status – hope and resilience of the human spirit are universal. When it comes down to it, we are all at the mercy of nature,” said Dana Ledoux Miller, co-showrunner, co-writer and executive producer. As with the real mission, Thai Cave Rescue has assembled a cast of international actors to portray key contributors in this rescue.
