Back in April of this year, we talked about something new in the form of a new period drama adaptation. Naturally, this news made me giddy with excitement over its eventual release. Only trouble is, there was no indication of the “when” U.S. audiences would be able to see this new period drama. Of course, we speak of the adaptation for (the best-selling novel) The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society. This means today we’re having a little “on Netflix: Guernsey.”
Since its U.K. release, Netflix announced they own the U.S. distribution rights which then made audiences wonder: does this mean the film will only appear on Netflix? Or will it earn a stint in theaters?
Today we learn this answer! Today I discovered this one is set to premiere on Netflix August 10. Can we just let that excitement sink in for a minute!?
Needless to say, I’m thrilled the rumor of an August premiere date is now accurate, and I’ve just a little over a month before I can see this story unfold. A story that a. sounds so promising and b. has an all-star cast I know will create story telling magic!On Netflix: August 10 Watch the Best-Selling ‘Guernsey’ #FWarchives Click To Tweet
This includes period drama pro Lily James (Downton Abbey, Cinderella), Michael Huisman (Age of Adaline), Mathew Goode, Jessica Brown-Findlay (both from Downton Abbey), and Glen Powell who some of you may have recently seen in Netflix’s Set It Up (thoughts on this romcom to come!).
Here’s the Netflix synopsis:

Of course, inspired by this film, recently I was going to have a little Twitter read along. That hasn’t yet happened, but I’m 100% still planning on it for anyone who wants to join the fun! Watch my Twitter page for details. Right now, the plan is post-July 4th!
Until then, I’m just going to leave all this excitement here and gaze at the pretty promotional images.
