With the recent news of the adaptation Anne of Green Gables series coming to an end, fans are banding together under #SaveAnneWithAnE in the hopes that it could bring the already cancelled show back for another season. The hashtag has made it into nearly 2,000 tweets since it picked up back in October and it’s still going. The hashtag name is inspired by the main character’s blunt request to always have her name, Anne, spelled correctly with an “E”. Fans of the series are following the young orphan girl’s outspoken nature and speaking out to save the show.
The show, which is based on the book series by Lucy Maud Montgomery, follows the story of Anne Shirley, a young orphan girl who has endured more than her fair share of pain in life, but continues to exude a plucky and hopeful personality with an optimistic and creative mind. Anne, who is as strong as she friendly, has inspired thousands upon thousands to not only hold onto hope in bleak times, but also think creatively and be ourselves. This is a huge part of the #SaveAnnWithAnE movement and why so many want to save the show.
The surprising part of this story of woe is this is not the first time this has happened. Before the series had it’s third season, fans were clamoring on Twitter for there to be more, and, as we already know, it worked. The third season was created and fans could not be happier.
With three seasons and an obviously huge number of fans ready for more, a four, maybe even fifth season should be expected. With enough of an audience, any showrunner would leap at the opportunity to even potentially milk out their series to give the fans what they want. That’s what one may think, however, creator and executive producer Moira Walley-Beckett confirmed on her Instagram that the show will be done.
Many have replied with gracious words, heartwarming understanding, and forlorn goodbyes to the beloved show. While Instagramers push through their grieving, Twitter users continue in their efforts to save Anne of Green Gables.
The third and final season will be airing January 3rd, 2020.
It’s an upsetting start of the year for the fanbase, but perhaps Netflix and/or the Canadian broadcasting company (CBC) have heard their cries and will bring the show back at some point in the future.
