New Netflix World War Two drama inspired by 'Stranger Things'

The new Netflix drama All The Light We Cannot See has been inspired by the streamer’s hit series, Stranger Things

Notably, the miniseries was developed by Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight and is based on Anthony Doerr’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of the same name. Boasting an all-star cast, it features the likes of Aria Mia Loberti, Mark Ruffalo and Hugh Laurie. It is set in World War II and follows a blind French teen whose life interweaves with that of a German soldier. 

The show is also directed by Shawn Levy, the Canadian filmmaker who served as the primary producer on Stranger Things. According to him, All The Light We Cannot See took some inspiration from the hit science-fiction show

“I mean, there’s a bunch of things that I see that are Stranger Things-inspired in this show,” Levy told Collider about the new project, “even though they seem like they have nothing in common. Some of the metrics to the editing, some of the heightened sound work that we do on Stranger Things, we absolutely do in this.”

He added: “I guess after eight years of Stranger Things, that’s baked into my sensibility, and I wanted it for this, too.”

All The Light We Cannot See is set to premiere on Netflix on November 2nd, 2023. Each of its four episodes will be available to stream on the same day.
