The upcoming third season of Netflix’s “Anne With an E” will be its last, a spokesperson for the streaming service confirmed to TheWrap.
The final season debuts Jan. 3.
Based on the Canadian novel “Anne of Green Gables” by Lucy Maud Montgomery, the story was reimagined by series creator Moira Walley-Beckett. The coming-of-age story follows Anne Shirley-Cuthbert (Amybeth McNulty), a fierce, starry-eyed, irrepressible 14-year old, and explores themes of identity, prejudice, feminism, bullying, gender parity and empowerment, according to Netflix.
“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,” Netflix and CBC said in a joint statement.
The CBC and Netflix original series also stars Geraldine James (Marilla Cuthbert), R.H. Thomson (Matthew Cuthbert), Corrine Koslo (Rachel Lynde), Dalila Bela (Diana Barry), Aymeric Jett Montaz (Jerry Baynard), Lucas Zumann (Gilbert Blythe) and Kyla Matthews (Ruby Gillis).
“Anne with an E” is produced by Northwood Entertainment, with executive producers including de Pencier, Walley-Beckett, Debra Hayward, Alison Owen and Ken Girotti. John Calvert is a producer.
