Netflix shows canceled in 2020: Anne with an E

On the bright side, Anne with an E was part of many fans’ Netflix channels for more than just a few months, first premiering in March of 2017. Now that it’s one of the good Netflix shows canceled in 2020, perhaps more people than ever will take advantage of its time left on the streaming service. Starring Amybeth McNulty as Anne Shirley-Cuthbert, the Canadian series adaptation of the classic 1908 children’s book series by Lucy Maud Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables, was created by Moira Walley-Beckett and has won Canadian Screen Award for Best Dramatic Series in both 2017 and 2018.

Set in 1896, an elderly brother and sister, Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, decide to adopt an orphan boy to help out around their farm home in Green Gables farm, on the outskirts of Avonlea on Prince Edward Island. However, when Matthew goes to the railway station to pick up the child, he meets the imaginative and tough-spirited 13-year-old orphan Anne Shirley. Matthew brings Anne home with him, to the strong disapproval of Marilla, though Anne insists that she can do everything a boy could and more. Anne becomes a member of the Cuthbert home, but her struggle for acceptance has only just begun as school brings about its own set of trials for orphaned children.

The series’ three seasons tackle a wide range or sensitive issues, such as child abandonment, psychological trauma, pressure for conformity, gender inequality, racism, religion and more. But, as with many children’s book adaptations, every topic is addressed with creativity and care. COVID might have canceled Anne with an E, but hopefully, we’ll see more Walley-Beckett reimaginings in the future.
