Netflix has opted against a fourth season of Canadian drama “Anne With an E.” Set in the late 19th century, brother and sister Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, both past their prime, decide to take on an orphan boy to help out around their ancestral farm of Green Gable, on the outskirts of the town of Avonlea, on Prince Edward Island.
“The fan support and love for ‘Anne With an E” is overwhelming, heartening, and wonderful — how I love these Kindred Spirits,” creator Moria Walley-Beckett said in a statement. “This proves to me how much this show has connected with a diverse audience around the world and how meaningful it is to everyone. I am incredibly proud of these three seasons. Creating “Anne With an E” was an amazing experience — it was my heart project and I gave all of myself to it. I’m so grateful to my extraordinary cast, crew, writers, and directors for passionately bringing my vision to life.”
“Anne With an E” is a joint-production with Canada’s CBC, which has already finished airing there, but its third. The now final season will be released on Netflix on Friday, January 3.
