Canadian television series (1990-1996) created by the director of the Anne of Green Gables
movies. The series can be considered as a sequel to the movies. Set in Avonlea after Anne's departure, it tells the stories of Sara Stanley, daughter of a disgraced industrialist sent to live with her relatives in order to escape the public humiliation; the King family, the aforementioned relatives; and the rest of the colourful population of Avonlea. The show carried over many of the characters from Anne of Green Gables
, including Marilla Cuthbert and Rachael Lynde.
The stories are loosely based on L. M. Montgomery
's novels The Story Girl
and The Golden Road
(Sara is the eponymous Story Girl), with side-plots culled from Montgomery's massive short story collections, most of which had nothing to do with the Anne of Green Gables series.
The later seasons focused more on Sara's cousins Felicity and Felix.
It was aired on the Disney Channel
