TVLine Items: Anne With an E Axed, Timeless Vet to Doctor Who and More

Anne With an E Cancelled

Anne With an Es adventures are coming to an end: The Netflix/CBC drama has been cancelled after three seasons, with the third and final season to debut Friday, Jan. 3 on the streamer. (The series finale already aired in Canada this past Sunday.)

“I’m sorry for the sad Netflix/CBC news today,” executive producer Moira Walley-Beckett wrote on Instagram. “I wish it could be different but it cannot. We have reached the end of the red Green Gables road after three wonderful seasons. My heart is heavy but I am so proud of this show — proud of my talented cast, crew, writers, and directors for working together so passionately to bring my vision of [Anne With an E] to life.”

Netflix and CBC issued the following joint statement: “We’ve been thrilled to bring the quintessentially Canadian story of Anne With an E to viewers around the world. We’re thankful to producers Moira Walley-Beckett and Miranda de Pencier and to the talented cast and crew for their incredible work in sharing Anne’s story with a new generation. We hope fans of the show love this final season as much as we do, and that it brings a satisfying conclusion to Anne’s journey.”
