Millbrook Was Beautifully Transformed Into Charlottetown, PEI For New CBC/Netflix TV Series "Anne"

Millbrook townsfolk were buzzing on Tuesday (November 8th), as their picturesque downtown near Peterborough, Ontario became the set for a new, upcoming CBC/Netflix series Anne based on the 1908 classic novel Anne of Green Gables.

The adaptation of the famous novel is slated to air early in 2017, and is being spearheaded by Emmy-winning writer Moira Walley-Beckett (Breaking Bad). The eight-episode series will stream globally on Netflix and air on CBC in Canada, and by airing on Netflix will further introduce Anne to a generation of new fans outside Canada.

Millbrook was dramatically transformed into Charlottetown, PEI for the scenes. Here are pictures below from the set...

Anne Shirley herself is being played by Amybeth McNulty, who wasn't on set today...
