Anne, also known as Anne - The Series and rebranded as "Anne with an E" on Netflix, is a drama television series based on the books by Lucy M. Montgomery. The series is produced by Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) and world-wide broadcast by Netflix.


Anne is a coming-of-age story about an outsider who, against all odds and numerous challenges, fights for love and acceptance and for her place in the world. The series centres on a young orphaned girl in the late 1890’s, who, after an abusive childhood spent in orphanages and the homes of strangers, is mistakenly sent to live with an elderly spinster and her ageing brother. Over time, 13-year-old Anne will transform their lives and eventually the small town in which they live with her unique spirit, fierce intellect and brilliant imagination.
