"I read in a book once that a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, but I've never been able to believe it. I don't believe a rose would be as nice if it was called a thistle or a skunk-cabbage."

Anne is a 2017 TV series based on Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery. It premiered on CBC on March 19, 2017. After the season finale all the episodes will be available on Netflix on May 12.[2]


Anne is described as a coming-of-age story about an outsider who fights for acceptance, for her place in the world and for love. The drama revolves around a young orphaned girl who, after an abusive childhood spent in orphanages and the homes of strangers, is mistakenly sent to live with an elderly spinster and her aging brother.

Over time, 13-year-old Anne will transform their lives and eventually the small town in which they live, with her unique spirit, fierce intellect and brilliant imagination. While the new series will follow a similar storyline to the book that millions of readers around the world know and love, it will also chart new territory. Anne and the rest of the characters in and around Green Gables will experience new adventures reflecting timeless issues, including themes of identity, sexism, bullying, prejudice and trusting oneself.[3]

Behind the scenes


Production notes

  • On January 12, 2016, CBC announced that it has greenlit a new straight-to-series adaptation of Anne of Green Gables.
  • The series began production in the spring 2016 with shooting in September 2016 for a CBC and Neflix debut in 2017.
  • Moira Walley-Beckett, the writer, executive producer and showrunner of the series, played Prissy Andrews in the 1982 production of Anne of Green Gables – The Musical.
  • Miranda de Pencier, one of the series producers, portrayed Josie Pye in Anne of Green Gables (1985), Anne of Green Gables: The Sequel (1987) and Anne of Green Gables: The Continuing Story (2000).
  • The worldwide search for the actress who would play Anne Shirley started in May 2016 with open casting calls held in Canadian cities from coast to coast, namely Toronto (May 7-8), Vancouver (May 14-15), Charlottetown (May 28) and Halifax (May 29-30). Those living abroad or unable to attend casting calls could upload their audition video on the casting call website until June 5.
  • The casting call describes Anne as, "11-14 year old girl, max. height 5'4", the smaller and wispier the better. Anne is impoverished and underfed. Anne is not old-fashioned, precious or glib. She’s a modern girl with a massive heart, a sense of justice, a searing intellect and, for better and for worse, an inability to self-edit. She is spunky, forthright, full of imagination, quirky and interesting. She is also a deeply wounded kid — she bears the emotional scars of the abusive life she’s led so far. Anne is full of contradictions, insecurities and deep emotions in a time when emotions were not welcomed or acceptable. ANNE will explore what it means to be a young person navigating adolescence and facing a changing era."[17]
  • The three days long prep shooting began in Prince Edward Island on September 14, 2016.[18] The crew officially started filming and began principal photography on September 22 in Ontario.[19] The filming locations included Milton, Pickering (Green Gables), Caledon (Lake of Shining Waters), Markham (Hammond House), Dundas (Asylum), Georgetown, Ancaster, North York, Tottenham, Millbrook and Toronto[20].
  • The filming of the pilot episode wrapped on October 27, 2016.[21]
  • As of December 5, the show was half-way through shooting Season 1.[22]
  • Although the crew wanted to film as many scenes as possible in Prince Edward Island, it was not possible because of budgetary reasons. According to Miranda de Pencier the show couldn't afford to transplant the more than 200 cast and crew needed for each episode.[22]
  • For the scenes filmed in Prince Edward Island about 25 Islanders as well as other crew from Nova Scotia and New Brunswick were employed.[22]
  • R.H. Thomson, who plays Matthew Cuthbert, has East Coast connections and his authentic Maritime accent had to be toned down because he sounded too unlike the other actors.[22]
  • The crew have crushed hundreds of red bricks into sand and they are carting truckloads of red roads around in Ontario to make the ground similar to the Prince Edward Island roads. They also made sure the hem of the women's skirts are scuffed with red dirt to make it feel real, earthy and authentic.[22]
  • An existing farmhouse that looks very much like Green Gables was found in Pickering, Ontario. However, the crew had to replace its new roof.[22]
  • De Pencier admitted that Anne has a much higher budget than typical Canadian dramas. She added that it's a period drama budget — comparable to U.S. and international cable dramas.[22]
  • The production tries to be as authentic as possible, including the details such as hand-stitched seams on costumes or lighting with candles and oil lamps.[22]
  • Season 1 takes place in the 1890s Canada, showing a 13-year-old Anne Shirley through her first year at Green Gables.[22]
  • De Pencier hopes the show will be renewed for seasons to come.[22]
  • The filming of Season 1 was wrapped on February 3, 2017.[23]
