The adaptation of Anthony Doerr’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel All the Light We Cannot See was a long time coming, and its release date is just around the corner. The first teaser for the Netflix mini-series based on this book is here, and it reveals we’ll finally get to see it in November.

All the Light We Cannot See takes place in the midst of World War II, and it’s been described as the story of a shared secret connection between two young people, who find faith in humanity and the possibility of hope during the darkest of times.

“Over the course of a decade, this limited series interweaves the lives of Marie-Laure Leblanc, a blind French girl taking refuge with her uncle during WWII, and Werner Pfennig, a brilliant German teenager with an expertise in radio repair,” reads Netflix’s official logline.

All the Light We Cannot See stars Aria Mia Loberti as Marie-Laure LeBlanc and Louis Hofmann as Werner Pfennig, with Mark Ruffalo, Hugh Laurie, Lars Eidinger, and Andrea Deck in supporting roles.

All the Light We Cannot See will feature a total of four episodes, all written by Steven Knight and directed by Shawn Levy, who co-created the series for Netflix. Its release date has been set for November 2, and you can watch the first teaser trailer below.
