Upcoming Netflix Adaptation Updates

Spring is just around the corner, and with it, the arrival of three Netflix shows all adapted from popular books. With each appearing in the news the past few days, here’s a quick update about their development:


13 Reasons Why

The adaptation of the Jay Asher book Thirteen Reasons Why announced a premiere date for the show just a couple of weeks ago. On Wednesday, fans were given a deeper glimpse into the show by Netflix, which released several photos (acquired by Entertainment Weekly) during a press junket on Wednesday.

The show, which counts Selena Gomez among its executive producers, will debut on Netflix, March 31.



In 2014, Sophia Amoruso wrote #GIRLBOSS as an autobiography about her experience breaking into the world of business via her ‘Nasty Girl’ company. Now, it’s set to be a Netflix comedy, with the first teaser and release date emerging on Wednesday via Deadline.


Amoruso will be a producer of the show along with Charlize Theron, while Britt Robertson will star. The 13-episode series will be released on April 21, 2017.



Anne of Green Gables is getting another reboot – this time, the L.M. Montgomery classic will air in eight installments on Netflix. Several months ago, the show cast Amybeth McNulty in the titular role. On Wednesday, the first clip came in the form of a premiere date announcement via The Hollywood Reporter, six months ahead of schedule!


The television series will share a similar plot to the book, where a 13-year old is mistakenly sent to live in a place she doesn’t belong. The show will now make its Netflix premiere on May 12.
