The gates of Green Gables are closing for good after it has been announced that “Anne With An E” will end with its third season. The third season of the Canadian drama has already aired its finale this past Sunday in Canada with Netflix dropping the final season in early 2020.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that Netflix would be concluding the series with the third season, which would consist of 10 episodes. In a joint statement, Netflix and Canadian broadcaster CBC said, "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."

Creator and executive producer Moira Walley-Beckett also confirmed the end of the series on an Instagram post saying, “I wish it could be different but it cannot. We have reached the end of the red Green Gables road after 3 wonderful seasons.”

Based on Lucy Maud Montgomery’s 1908 novel “Anne of Green Gables,” the series was picked up by CBC before Netflix had streaming rights for the rest of the world. Starring Amybeth McNulty, the series followed the exploits of Anne Shirley, an orphaned girl in the late 19th Century who gets adopted by a couple initially wanting a boy. Anne’s enthusiasm has influenced the town of Avonlea, even when things sometimes go wrong.

The series would tackle themes of identity, prejudice, bullying, feminism, and finding acceptance. Unlike previous adaptations, the show provided a different look with some authenticity to the times. Ten books were published based on the character following her childhood up to her adult years. The novels were adapted into various made-for-TV films, miniseries, and animated series.

The first season of “Anne With An E” aired in 2017 with seven episodes while the 10-episode second season was released in 2018.

The final season of “Anne With An E” will drop on Netflix Jan. 3.
