Netflix has a long history of taking our childhood memories and bringing them back with nostalgia and high-quality acting and directing. Now, the streaming service is partnering with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation to bring a beloved classic novel series to life. The series, Anne of Green Gables, will revolve around Anne, an imaginative and feisty orphan who changes her hometown.

The show won't be shot on Prince Edward Island, where the books take place, but rather in Ontario. Still, it will have some well-known veterans on board to make it a success. Breaking Bad writer Moira Walley-Beckett will be penning the entire first season, which will consist of eight episodes. Whale rider's Niki Caro will direct with Beginners' Miranda de Pencier producing.

The estimated premier date will be in 2017. The show will be on Netflix and CBC TV, though there hasn't been an announcement as to when or if the shows will air concurrently.

It wasn't the only notable work that was unveiled today. Netflix unveiled plans for a new comedy series from Neighbors' Nick Stroller and his wife Francesca Delbanco entitled Friends from College. The first season of the show, which will also have eight episodes, tells the story of Harvard alums in their forties. The show will follow them through their ups and downs of adulthood. There isn't a timeframe for the show, but production will start in the fall, so it is likely that it too will debut in 2017.

It already has an extremely promising cast, including Keegan-Michael Key (Key & Peele), Jae Suh Park (The Big Short) and Fred Savage (The Wonder Years).
