Anne With An E is a Canadian coming-of-age period drama series. Moira Walley-Beckett created the series and also wrote the screenplay for the series.
The Plot of Anne With An E
The series follows Anne, a teenage orphan who has endured an abusive childhood. She proves to be uniquely spirited and imaginative. She uses her intelligence to help everyone and transform their lives.
Future of the series
Unfortunately for all the fans of the series, Netflix cancelled Anne With An E shortly after the release of the third season in November 2019. Fans launched a campaign on Twitter asking Netflix to renew the series. The hashtag #renewannewithane launched and has more than a million results. Canadian actor and Deadpool star, Ryan Reynolds also joined the campaign to save the show. Despite strong support from the fans, there, unfortunately, has been no development from Netflix or CBC and no announcement either.
Before the release of the third season, CBC had indicated that Netflix agreed on the third season being the last. The president of CBC had also said that it no longer will be involved in any co-production with Netflix.
The reason given for cancellation of the show was a lack of audience growth, especially in the age group of 25 to 54. This led to fans questioning about how CBC and Netflix track viewers’ ages.
Apart from the Netflix and CBC saying that the show was not getting enough viewers, the end of their partnership could be another season for the show’s cancellation.
Show creator Walley-Beckett shared on social media that she was gutted and disappointed at the show’s cancellation. She also revealed that she tried to find a new streaming platform but was not successful in doing so. She had also revealed that she would love to write a finale feature film that would be a perfect conclusion to series, but she couldn’t do that either.
The show’s other producer, Miranda de Pencier shares that there was no way to revive the show.
Will there be a season four?
Despite all the efforts by the fans and the campaigns on social media, Anne With An E won’t be getting a fourth season. The makers and cast members of the show had also said their goodbyes and moved on.
Lucy Maud Montgomery’s book followed Anne Shirley into her adulthood. There is a lot of material from the books that is to explore and adapt. Unfortunately, won’t be able to watch on screen.
The campaign on social media, however, remains strong, and fans will keep campaigning until the show is renewed.
