Anne with An E has been cancelled. And to say that I’m angry would be an understatement.
I deserved more. We deserved more. We deserved to see Gilbert become a doctor, to see Anne become a teacher. We deserved to see them get married, and start a family.
But, instead, we just get …this. Three seasons, and that’s it.
*shakes fist at streaming service projections*
Netflix announced the news on the same post that announced the season three premiere, because they don’t want us to be happy, or to have nice things.
The final chapter is coming ✨ Here's to kindred spirits, chosen family and the forever wonder of Green Gables 👒 pic.twitter.com/mQaS77UKDM

As if that weren’t enough, Amybeth Mcnulty also bid farewell to the character she made her own in a super emotional Instragram post:

Dear Anne, I don’t think I was ever going to be ready to say goodbye, but as the saying goes – everything must come to an end. Thank you for teaching me, growing up with me and loving me. I have taken so many part of who you are into my life. – Anne has taught me how to be brave, how to be strong, how to love unapologetically and how to approach so many different obstacles in life. She is so much more than words on paper. She really is a part of who I am now, and I will carry her with me forever. I cant deny that I’m heartbroken, but more than that I am grateful. Such a large part of my childhood is documented, and what an experience to document. – – To the cast and crew, my second family. You put every part of your heart and soul into this project, and I promise you it does not go unnoticed. Every single one of you has helped shape me into the woman I am today, I can only hope I’ve made you proud in some way. You are all such remarkable people and I will never be able to thank you enough. Please stay in touch. – And to you, the viewers. The ones who have supported us these last few years. I can say this now, but on those tough, cold and stressful days just seeing what an effect this show has on you or how it made your day really pushed me through. I can say truthfully that those rough days were more than worth it, for you. – I will miss this show with all of my heart, and I will never forget this journey. My childhood was a good one, thanks to all of you. – In the wise words of @moirawalleybeckett “I am so sad to see you go, and yet so happy that I know you.” With all my love, Amybeth. – Enjoy the finale! Coming January 3rd, on Netflix.
And I could be grateful, and maybe at some point I will be. I have loved this adaptation, and I will continue to love the books and to love Anne, and hopefully, one day, I can teach my kids to do so.
But right now, I’m just angry. Angry at the business that dictates we don’t get to see stories through to conclusion. Angry that we’re losing this beautiful, brilliant, heartfelt show. I can’t be anything else.
