Anne of Green Gables Series Coming to Netflix

Netflix will be bringing the Lucy Maud Montgomery novel to a new home. The book follows orphaned Anne Shirley as she is adopted by a brother and sister in early 1900s. The family adopts her looking for a boy to help them on their farm, and are shocked when a daughter arrives. Anne has a very active imagination, and is unwilling to simply bite her tongue, so she struggles to fit in with her new family and the rural community. The books were considered staples for young girls for many years, but over time have been enjoyed by people of all ages and genders. In the 1980s Anne of Green Gables (and one of the sequels) was adapted into a very popular movie. Breaking Bad writer Moria Walley-Beckett is head writer, and executive producer. Along with her is a pretty solid supporting crew to help produce and write the show. The show is expected to air on CBC and begin streaming on Netflix in 2017. Everyone involved has high expectations for the show, focusing largely on the well loved character of Anne. As someone that remembers Anne from my childhood fondly, I am rather looking forward to what they will do with it. We will bring you more news as we are able.
