Fans are calling for a fourth season of “Anne With an ‘E'” — more than a million of them.

Inspired by Lucy Maud Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables books, the co-production between CBC and Netflix was cancelled after three seasons.

Following last year’s announcement that “Anne with an ‘E'” wouldn’t be returning, a fan launched a petition calling for the show to be revived for a fourth season.

“Let’s hope this petition catches the eye of Netflix and they decide to renew the show for season 4!” the petition reads. “Anne would want us to fight!”

On July 24, the petition received its one-millionth signature; the petition’s new goal has now been set for 1.5 million signatures.

Upon hitting the one-million signature milestone, the phrase “Anne One Million” began trending on Twitter — even trending in such far-flung locales as Russia, Italy and Peru.

However, bringing back “Anne With an ‘E'” may take more than a petition.

In October 2019, CBC announced that Canada’s public broadcaster would no longer work with Netflix on content.

“We’re not going to do deals that hurt the long-term viability of our domestic industry,” CBC president and CEO Catherine Tait said, as reported by the Financial Post. “A number of countries have done deals, as we did, with Netflix… and over time we start to see that we’re feeding the growth of Netflix, or we’re feeding the growth of Amazon, rather than feeding our own domestic business and industry.”

Late last year, “Anne” exec producer Miranda de Pencier addressed the petition — which at the time had amassed about 66,000 signatures — to tell fans that “there is just no way to revive ‘Anne with an E’ anywhere at this point. It will not happen.”

A letter to our fans: Thank you so much for your tweets, hashtags, DMs, emails, letters, and messages. You have overwhelmed the internet and us! We heard your voices loud and clear (as did CBC and Netflix) from all around the world and we are so grateful for the generous outpouring of passionate enthusiasm for our show. We couldn’t feel more honored, humbled, and deeply moved. As hard as it is to face letting go of things we love (and we’ve loved this journey of making ANNE WITH AN E as much as you have loved watching it) there is just no way to revive ANNE WITH AN E anywhere at this point. It will not happen. So now we need to love all that exists of it and hold onto the joy and hope and wonder the show brought to all of us who worked on it, and all of you who watched it. And when you have a longing for Green Gables, know that you can return to it and it will always be there for you. ANNE WITH AN E will live forever in our hearts – as will you, our beloved fans. Your Kindred Spirits, Miranda and Moira @annetheseries @annewithane #renewannewithane #rennewawae #saveannewithane @amybethmcnulty @moirawalleybeckett @cbc @netflix @northwoodentertainment
