After news broke on Monday (Nov 25) that Netflix and CBC had canceled the series “Anne with an E” following its season 3 release fans took to social media asking Netflix to renew series. While season 3 has already aired in Canada, it is set to be released on Netflix in the United States on January 3. Entertainment Weekly reached out to the series creator Moira Walley-Beckett for a statement where she thanked the fans for their support all over the world.
“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 EW. “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.”
Viewer support for a Netflix series has yielded positive results in the past with other beloved shows such as “One Day at a Time” being picked up by networks like pop TV. Fans are hopeful that in some way the series will live on. Beckett is open to the possibility of doing a feature film.
“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.
