29 Jul - The upcoming "Thai Cave Rescue" limited series is set to stream on Netflix in two months' time.

The news was shared by the streaming giant, stating that the series about the real-life rescue of 12 boys and their adult football coach who were trapped for 18 days in a Tham Luang cave in northern Thailand will be releasing on 22 September.

It is noted that unlike the upcoming Ron Howard film, "Thirteen Lives", this limited series is a partnership between Netflix and filmmakers across Thailand.
