Anne is based on the 1908 book, Anne of Green Gables, by Lucy Maud Montgomery. It's all about a young red-haired girl called Anne Shirley.

The Cuthbert family are expecting an orphan boy to help with the work at Green Gables - but a skinny red-haired girl turns up instead. Highly spirited Anne Shirley charms her way into the Cuthberts' affection with her vivid imagination and constant chatter, and soon it's impossible to imagine life without her.

Netflix had this to say about the series:

"Anne is a coming-of-age story about an outsider who, against all odds and many challenges, fights for love and acceptance and her place in the world. Set in Prince Edward Island in the late 1890s, the series centers on Anne Shirley (Amybeth McNulty), a young orphaned girl who, after an abusive childhood spent in orphanages and the homes of strangers, is mistakenly sent to live with an aging sister and brother. Over time, 13-year-old Anne will transform the lives of Marilla (Geraldine James) and Matthew Cuthbert (R.H. Thomson) and eventually the entire small town in which they live with her unique spirit, fierce intellect and brilliant imagination. Anneís adventures reflect timeless and topical issues including themes of identity, feminism, bullying and prejudice."

The new series, simply called Anne, will be available on Netflix from May 12.
