Anne With an E, Netflix’s adaptation of the novel Anne of Green Gables, will wrap up its run with its upcoming third season.
And it looks like the three-and-done model Netflix claims another TV show victim.
The streaming service today announced that Anne With an E, the Canadian drama based on the beloved novel Anne of Green Gables, will conclude with its upcoming third season.
The 10-episode season will debut January 3 on Netflix. The third season finale aired Sunday on Canadian public broadcaster CBC.
Creator and executive producer Moira Walley-Beckett confirmed the news via Instagram, saying that, “I wish it could be different but it cannot. We have reached the end of the red Green Gables road after 3 wonderful seasons. My heart is heavy but I am so proud of this show – proud of my talented cast, crew, writers, and directors for working together so passionately to bring my vision of Anne With an E to life. I am grateful and humbled by this experience and I truly feel blessed to have had the opportunity to share this beautiful, meaningful story with all of you, my kindred spirits. I know you have loved this series as much as I have and I thank you for that forever and a day.”
In a joint statement, The CBC and Netflix said, “We’ve been thrilled to bring the quintessentially Canadian story of Anne With an E to viewers around the world. We’re thankful to producers Moira Walley-Beckett and Miranda de Pencier and to the talented cast and crew for their incredible work in sharing Anne’s story with a new generation. We hope fans of the show love this final season as much as we do, and that it brings a satisfying conclusion to Anne’s journey.”
The CBC had first-run rights to the series, while Netflix claimed the streaming rights. That means that Anne With an E aired on CBC a few months before Netflix, which then streamed the show a few months later to the rest of the world outside Canada.
Walley-Beckett of Breaking Bad fame and de Pencier executive produced Anne With an E along with Elizabeth Bradley, Alex Sapot, Sally Catto, Debra Hayward, Alison Owen and Ken Girotti. Amybeth McNulty played the title character, Anne. The cast also included Geraldine James, R.H. Thomson, Dalila Bela, Lucas Jade Zumann, Aymeric Jett Montaz, Corrine Koslo, Dalmar Abuzeid and Cory Gruter-Andrew.
