Anne of Green Gables was adapted into a series by NETFLIX and CBS and is now called ‘Anne with an E’. The first season came out on 19th march on CBS Canada . From the second season onwards which came out on 6th July 2018, the series was also available on Netflix and the last season which was the third one came out on 24th November 2019.
The story is about a 13 year old girl Anne Shirley who is in search of love, care and acceptance. With her caring and loving nature , she ends up changing the lives of the Cubbert sisters: Marilla and Mathew. Unfortunately for many people, sources said that the series would come to an end with the third season being the last one .
The reason given was some unresolved dispute between Netflix and CBS. However, with no official confirmation to the news, it is still being hoped that the audience would get a chance to see the fourth season. The show has managed to influence people to an extent that the fans reacted to the news of the cancellation of the fourth season in a very unusual yet unique way.
They carried out a campaign to bring Anne with an E back with Hashtags such as #SaveAnnewithanE and #RenewAnnewithanE which started getting popular all over Twitter , the latter being used more than one million times. There is also a petition on Change.org to bring it’s fourth season. Another quirky effort that the fans made was getting a bill board in the Times Square of the New York City !
