Netflix confirmed the release date for “Anne with an E: Season 2,” and there’s even a new trailer to go along with the announcement. The follow-up season is launching in just a few short weeks, so you’ll have another show to get you through those long summer days.
If you want to set a reminder, “Anne With an E” Season 2 is hitting Netflix on July 6th, the expanded ten episode season from Miranda de Pencier’s Northwood Entertainment launches exclusively on Netflix everywhere, excluding Canada.
All episodes will be available all at once to members around the world, outside of Canada (where Season 2 debuts this September 23rd on CBC).
Inspired by the timeless Canadian novel ”Anne of Green Gables” by Lucy Maud Montgomery, the second season of “Anne with an E” will explore themes of identity, prejudice, feminism, bullying, gender parity and empowerment through the lens of its fierce, starry-eyed, irrepressible 14-year-old protagonist. Fans of the series can get a first-look at the second season below, thanks to an early morning upload from Netflix.
A coming-of-age story, reimagined by creator Moira Walley-Beckett, “Anne with an E” stars returning fan favorites Amybeth McNulty (Anne Shirley-Cuthbert), Geraldine James (Marilla Cuthbert), R.H. Thomson (Matthew Cuthbert), Corrine Koslo (Rachel Lynde), Dalila Bela (Diana Barry), Aymeric Jett Montaz (Jerry Baynard), Lucas Zumann (Gilbert Blythe) and Kyla Matthews (Ruby Gillis). This season introduces audiences to new characters including Dalmar Abuzeid (Sebastian Lacroix) and Cory Grüter-Andrew (Cole MacKenzie) conceived by Moira Walley-Beckett and an all-female writers’ room.
A CBC and Netflix original series, Anne with an E is produced by Northwood Entertainment and created by Moira Walley-Beckett. The executive producers are Miranda de Pencier, Moira Walley-Beckett, Debra Hayward, Alison Owen and Ken Girotti. John Calvert serves as producer.
