The CBC and Netflix original show Anne with an E has been one of the most loved shows because of its premiere in 2017. Having completed three successful seasons, the series has attained cult status over the year. The third season of this series premiered on Netflix on Jan 3, 2020. It’s been more than a season since season three was released on Netflix. So, it is not surprising that fans are demanding Anne with an E-season 4.
Anne with an E is a Canadian television series based on Lucy Maud Montgomery’s 1908 classic novel titled Anne of Green Gables.
What The Show Is All About?
The series is set in the late 19th century and recounts the experiences of Anne Shirley, an 11-year-old orphan woman, who are sent to two middle-aged siblings, Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert. They had originally intended to adopt a boy to help them on their plantation in the fictional town of Avonlea at Prince Edward Island, Canada. The show narrates Anne’s life struggles with Cuthberts, in school, and in the town.
The show addresses various social problems issues such as orphaning, child abandonment, psychological trauma, gender inequality, racism, religion, and liberty of speech.
How Many Seasons Of Anne With An E Are There?
Currently, three seasons of Anne with an E are available to flow on Netflix. The first season consisting of seven episodes aired on CBC from March 19, 2017, to April 30, 2017. It surfaced on Netflix on May 12, 2017. The next season premiered on Netflix on July 6, 2018. The most recent season three fell on Netflix on Jan 3, 2020.

How Many Episodes Are There?
In general, there are 27 episodes, each of around 45 episodes. While the first period had seven episodes, the subsequent two had ten episodes every day. If you truly want to binge a good drama series then Anne with an E is a good watch with enough content.
Will There Be Anne With An E Season 4?
Much to the surprise of critics and fans, Netflix and CBC announced the show’s cancellation on the afternoon (Nov 24, 2019) following the season three finale aired in Canada. This comes as a shocker for fans as CBC earlier expressed that Canadians will continue to fall in love with this gorgeous and heartwarming series for seasons to come. The crude reason for cancellation is the bargain between CBC and Netflix dropped through and their partnership dissolved.
Following the cancellation, the hurt fans began offline and online campaigns to save the series. A Twitter campaign with the hashtag #renewannewithane was launched. Aside from the Twitter effort, fans raised voices through a petition on change.org to reverse the decision of cancellation or the series to be chosen by another streamer. Approximately 2 million people signed this petition. Fans are also crowdfunded to erect billboards in Toronto and New York City. Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds and English singer Sam Smith also tweeted.
Despite all the efforts, Anne with an E remains a 3 season series. The lovers are still putting in a great deal of effort to reverse the show cancellation. But, Netflix and CBC appear to have made their thoughts. It would be interesting to see if some other studio or streamer picks the series for the upcoming season.
