Just like its unique name, Anne with an E has a unique approach to attracting the viewer’s mind. This is the reason why all the seasons of the Canadian drama TV series were remarkable. The web series stimulated user’s interest from the very beginning, which is also why it bagged a great 8.6 on IMDb. There were many critical topics of today’s world that were introduced and praised, like homosexuality and racial inequality in the series.
The third season of the web series aired last year in September, which was not complete actually. As it was made based on the 1908 novel, Anne of Green Gables, by Lucy Maud Montgomery, the story portrayed in season 3 is not yet complete. The whole ka’kwet storyline, along with Anne’s love story to marriage, is unexplored yet. Hence, fans were expecting season 4 this year.
Cancellation of Anne with an E Season 4 and Petitions
This came as bad news for the fans last year that their beloved show was cancelled. The cancellation of the show led to both online and offline campaigns to save it. And till now, the online petition at change.org hasn’t fallen short of petition numbers. If we talk about the exact numbers, the counter is already above the 200,000 mark and still counting.
If we talk about the reason for cancellation, it was revealed by Sally Catto last year who is CBC’s general manager of programming. He said that though the series was favourite for some of the youngsters, it could not manage to make a strong fanbase on Netflix. The number of viewers did not add upto the expectations of the streaming giant. He also added that the majority of viewers did not reflect in the age group of 25-54 years.
As of now, we don’t know that the series is cancelled. But, as long as the petition number is soaring on change.org, there is still hope for a renewal.
