It might not be the end of “Anne With An E”, despite Monday’s cancellation news.
It was announced earlier today that the series for Netflix and CBC will wrap after three seasons, but if creator Moira Walley-Beckett has anything to do with it, there will be a feature film to tie the series together.
“The fan support and love for ‘Anne with an E’ is overwhelming, heartening, and wonderful — how I love these Kindred Spirits,” Walley-Beckett said in a statement to Entertainment Weekly. “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.”
After the news of “Anne With An E”‘s cancellation, the hashtag #RenewAnneWithAnE began trending on Twitter.
“I will miss this show forever and a day. That being said, I’d love to write an AWAE finale feature film…” Walley-Beckett added.
Following the cancellation news, a fan petition to save the show was launched.
Within 24 hours, the petition garnered over 20,000 signatures from fans around the world asking Netflix to renew the show for a fourth season.
The final season of “Anne With An E” already aired in Canada but will hit Netflix in the New Year.
