This is the enchanting sequel to the Emmy Award-winning “Anne of Green Gables”, in which Anne Shirley makes the transition from a romantic, impetuous orphan to an outspoken, adventurous and accomplished young teacher.
After the wedding of her best friend, Diana Barry, and a proposal from Gilbert, Anne decides to leave Avonlea to accept a teaching post at Kingsport Ladies College. In order to succeed, Anne must win over the icy Katherine Brooke and endure tormenting from the snobby Pringle family.
But Anne finds a kindred spirit in Emmeline Harris, who is being raised by her cranky grandmother, Margaret Harris, and wants nothing more than to be loved by her absent father, Morgan Harris. Anne and Emmeline become fast friends, and Anne quickly forces her way into the Harris family and ultimately changes their lives.
However, after a chance encounter with Gilbert, Anne begins to re-evaluate what is important to her. A surprise question from Morgan Harris makes Anne realize how much she misses home. Upon her return to Avonlea, she learns news about Gilbert and must decide how much he truly means to her.
Canadian actress Megan Follows returns to her role as Anne. Tony Award-winner Colleen Dewhurst stars opposite her as aging Marilla Cuthbert and Oscar-winning Actress Dame Wendy Hiller appears as the prickly dowager Mrs. Harris. A stirring, witty and charming follow-up, to the epic tale of the beguiling red-head.
