The wait is over...well, almost. In just a few weeks, Netflix's adaptation of David Nicholls' One Day will be available to watch.

As soon as Netflix announced that they would be turning Nicholls' bestseller into a TV series, fans have been desperate to see it. The romance novel was famously adapted into a movie starring Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess in 2011. However, the film was panned by critics and viewers who thought that it failed to live up the source material.

Netflix's One Day looks set to bring the book to the screen in the way fans have always wanted. With that in mind, here's everything you need to know about the show including the release date, cast, trailers, plot spoilers and so much more.

What happens in Netflix's One Day?

Netflix's One Day looks set to be a loyal adaptation of the beloved book that inspired it.

The official show synopsis reads: "One Day tells the story of Emma Morley and Dexter Mayhew who, on 15th July 1988, the night of their graduation, speak for the very first time. The next morning, they go their separate ways but where will they be on this one ordinary day the next year, and the year after that, and every year that follows?"

It continues: "Each episode finds Dex and Em, one year older, on this one particular date, as they grow and change, move together and apart, experience joy and heartbreak. One Day is a decades-spanning love story, based on the worldwide bestseller by David Nicholls."
