New "Anne" Series on CBC and Netflix

Sun Dec 04, 2016 9:35 pm

There has been a few articles about the new "Anne" series which is filming right now. The first season has 8 episodes.

"I feel that this Anne is entirely different," says Walley-Beckett. "We're off-book. We're the essence of the book, we have the heart and soul of the book, we have our iconic moments that everyone can't wait for, and we're telling a new story. I think that is one reason why it's entirely its own."

'It's not doilies and teacups, it's life'

"This is a very grounded, real version of the story. Life in Prince Edward Island in the late 1800s was a hard, gritty, scrappy life. It was messy, it was covered in red mud," says Walley-Beckett.

"The weather, the seasons, it's all part of our story. It's not doilies and teacups, it's life."

What do you think about this approach?

So far, two characters who will have more of a role than in the book are:

1. Jerry Baynard - hired farmhand

2. Billy Andrews - he will play a bully at school

I think it's great that there will be new characters like the farm boy. The actor who plays Jerry is so adorable!!! I just can't wait!!! Can we know more about this young actor?

I watched the first episode of the Anne series and I really liked it. The cast is wonderful and R.H. Thompson is absolutely wonderful as Matthew because he truly understands this character. I can't wait to watch more. Its definitely well done and its really worth watching.

I agree the series does look promising and I'm very impressed with it.

I watched the first episode and thought it was good. I'm wondering where they will be going next with the storyline, but it looks promising.

Just to remind everyone Episode 2 is going to be this coming Sunday, March 26th at 8:00pm.

Originally, they had planned to take a break until April, but thank goodness they decided against it.
