That precious little Anne with an E isn't going anywhere!
A Netflix and CBC original series, Anne with an E has been renewed for a 10-episode third season, which will begin filming this winter. Based on the original novel Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery, this updated series tells the same coming-of-age tale we all know and love while also taking on timely issues like identity, prejudice, feminism, bullying, gender parity, diversity and empowerment.
Showrunner Moira Walley-Beckett (Breaking Bad) teased a big season for Anne, as she hits a big number in her life. "Our beloved Anne will be 16 years old when we return to this season full of romantic complications, bold adventures and dramatic discoveries," said Walley-Beckett. "I will explore important, contemporary themes that I hope will continue to resonate with, and inspire and uplift, our audience."
Season 2 ended with Gilbert (Lucas Jade Zumann) telling Anne (Amybeth McNulty) he planned to stay and work the farm with his family instead of leaving early for college, meaning there's still a chance those two crazy kids will get together. After all, it's hard to ignore that bit of foreshadowing when Gilbert asked whether Anne intended to follow in her teacher's footsteps and have a "tragical romance," to which Anne not-so-innocently responded, "Remains to be seen?"
Shipping it. Shipping it hard.
Season 3 is expected to premiere on Netflix in 2019.
