Anne with an E (Anne) is a Canadian drama web series based on the 1908 novel Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery and adapted by Emmy Award-winning writer and producer Moira Walley-Beckett. It was first premiered on March 19, 2017, on CBC and after its record-breaking success, Netflix renewed the series for a 10-episode second season, which premiered on July 6, 2018.
These two seasons have managed to impress not only all the fans of the ‘Anne of Green Gables’ book series but also those who were ignorant about this beautiful universe. The good news is that the heartwarming series is returning to Netflix for a third season.
This season, Anne will be turning 16 years old so Anne will be slowly becoming a woman dealing with all that doing so entails such as relationships and new discoveries. In addition, Anne is looking to learn more about her birth parents this season too.
The series will also introduce its first “Indigenous storyline” and characters (as we’ll come onto in a bit) with the town of Green Gables interacting with a camp of the Mi’kmaq nation. In the original announcement of the third season, it was said that “Season three of the series will introduce characters and stories that will tackle issues including identity, feminism, bullying and gender parity.”
Much of the main cast has been confirmed to be returning for the third season. These include Amybeth McNulty, Geraldine James, R. H. Thomson, Dalila Bela, Corrine Koslo, Lucas Jade Zumann, Aymeric Jett Montaz, Dalmar Abuzeid, Cara Ricketts, Joanna Douglas, Kyla Matthews, Cory Grüter-Andrew, and Miranda McKeon.

Here it’s important to note that Anne with an E isn’t quite a full Netflix Original. Instead, Netflix owns the international distribution rights to the show. In August 2018, CBC and Netflix renewed the series for a 10-episode third season, which premiered on September 22, 2019, on CBC, and is set to be released on Netflix on January 3, 2020.
We found an official trailer for the third season published by CBC on August 26, 2019, along with a short note, “Anne with an E is a coming-of-age story about an outsider who, against all odds and numerous challenges, fights for love and acceptance and her place in the world.” Check out the trailer above.
