Netflix Originals coming this week:

Anne With an E

Based on the beloved books of Anne of Green Gables, Anne with an E is the story of a young orphaned girl who is sent from the orphanage to live with an old spinster woman and her brother. The stern siblings, expecting a boy orphan, are less than impressed with Anne but she sets out to show them and everybody else what she’s made of. There have been varying attempts to recreate the character of Anne over the years and this one looks set to present the story a little darker, a bit more adult and with more depth.

*Except Canada on the first run. Includes Canada on the second run, the date of this is currently unannounced.

    1. The short answer is we don’t know. It would seem season 5 may have been added in error as it was removed within a week. Keep track of the blog and we’ll let you know when we have any news. Laura
