Netflix has announced that the final Anne with an E season will launch on the streaming service on January 3, 2020. The third season of the Northwood Entertainment show will consist of 10 episodes.
Inspired by the timeless Canadian novel Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery, the third season of Anne with an E will continue to tell the coming-of-age story of an outsider who, against all odds and numerous challenges, fights for acceptance, for her place in the world, and for love.
Executive producers Walley-Beckett (Breaking Bad, Flesh and Bone) and de Pencier (Beginners, Thanks for Sharing) team up once again to re-immerse audiences in Anne’s world in Avonlea. Building on the stellar success of the first two seasons, Anne with an E season 3 will continue to chart bold new territory, adding new characters and storylines while exploring themes of identity, prejudice, feminism, bullying, gender parity, diversity and empowerment through the lens of its fierce, starry-eyed, irrepressible 16-year-old protagonist.
While Anne with an E will continue to honor the foundation of L. M. Montgomery’s novel, a Canadian treasure and global phenomenon, the series’ third season will creatively evolve. Ever transforming Avonlea with her unique spirit, fierce intellect and brilliant imagination, Anne and the rest of the characters will experience thrilling adventures as they explore timeless themes of identity, deceit, sexism, racism, bullying, prejudice, and empowerment.
A Netflix and CBC original series, Anne with an E is produced by Northwood Entertainment and created by Moira Walley-Beckett. The executive producers are Miranda de Pencier, Moira Walley-Beckett, Debra Hayward and Alison Owen.
