I know Anne With an E may not seem like the kind of show that you want to watch, but I've been watching it with my girls and it's actually really good! If you haven't watched it. you should give it a shot. The show is apparently doing pretty good in the ratings as Netflix and CBC have renewed Anne With an E for a third season.
The series is inspired by Lucy Maud Montgomery’s novel Anne of Green Gables, and Sally Catto, General Manager of Programming at CBC had this to say about the series renewal:
"We are thrilled to be able to announce a third season of Anne with an E before season two premieres in Canada. Anne with an E delivered a rich first season, drawing in both new and existing fans to the world of Avonlea. We have no doubt that Canadians will continue to fall in love with this beautiful and heartwarming series for seasons to come."
Cindy Holland, VP of original content for Netflix added:
"Through the storytelling of Anne with an E, the classic Canadian tale has transcended borders and found fans across our global membership. We are excited to continue our partnership with CBC and Northwood and bring the series back for a third season."
Showrunner Moira Walley-Beckett said:
"Our beloved Anne will be 16 years old when we return to this season full of romantic complications, bold adventures and dramatic discoveries. I will explore important, contemporary themes that I hope will continue to resonate with, and inspire and uplift, our audience."
And then there's executive producer Miranda de Pencier, who said:
"We’re super thrilled that this series has resonated in 190 countries. I’m also very proud that we make our show in Canada with a wonderfully talented group of artists – led by the brilliant Moira Walley-Beckett. The character of Anne gives people permission to be themselves because she is so resoundingly herself. There are so many walls being built and so much fear growing in the world right now and Anne offers us a reminder that it’s okay to stay positive, be kind, and to dream, no matter how tough life gets – which is inspiration we all need."
Season 3 is expected to premiere on Netflix and CBC next year.
