  • Apple TV+ has officially premiered its new animated adaption of "Harriet the Spy."
  • The first five episodes of the season are streaming now.

"Harriet the Spy," the animated adaption of the iconic children's novel, is now streaming on Apple TV+.

The series stars Beanie Feldstein as Harriet and Emmy Award winner Jane Lynch as Ole Golly, Harriet's nanny.

Set in 1960s New York when the original book was published, "Harriet the Spy" follows the outspoken and perpetually curious 11-year-old Harriet M. Welsch. More than anything, Harriet wants to be a writer, and in order to be a good writer, she'll need to know everything. And to know everything means she'll need to spy … on everyone! Joining Feldstein and Lynch, the series features Lacey Chabert as Marion Hawthorne, the ringleader of a group of popular girls at Harriet's school, and additional voice cast Kimberly Brooks, Crispin Freeman, Grey Griffin, Bumper Robinson and Charlie Schlatter.
