With Fuller House, the resurgence of the X-Files, and 80s-inspired Stranger Things, it seems that the nostalgia is in full swing over at Netflix. Now, because the world was starting to forget how rad Prince Edward Island was, the streaming service will launch a reboot of beloved Canadian classic, Anne Of Green Gables.
Dubbed, Anne, the new show will be produced by the CBC network, where it will also air for its eight episode run. This joint partnership between CBC and Netflix will make it hard to miss the program on our small screens.
Most excitingly, we know that the reboot will be in good hands, having both Breaking Bad writer, Moira Walley-Beckett, and Beginners producer, Miranda de Pencier. Walley-Beckett penned the excellent "Ozymandias" episode of Breaking Bad, which holds a perfect score on film website, IMDB. The episode is often heralded as one of the best hours in television history. We're not sure how the brutal world of meth empires will correlate with the charming and peaceful fields of Atlantic Canada, but boy are we anxious to find out.
The two-hour premiere is scheduled for next year, and will debut on CBC and Netflix internationally. There has still yet to be a confirmed date for Netflix Canada, but we’re holding onto our pigtails in hope. One thing we know, however, is that Canadians are ready.
