Anne with an E - "Great and Sudden Change"
As the world of Avonlea continues to expand, Anne (Amybeth McNulty) turns 16 – a momentous occasion which cements her desire to discover more about her birth parents and family history. But this new quest isn’t comfortable for everyone, as Matthew (RH Thomson) and Marilla (Geraldine James) grapple with the fact that Anne may have a life outside of Green Gables. Meanwhile, the residents of Avonlea interact with a camp of members of the Mi’kmaq nation, causing tensions to rise, and deep bonds to be forged. The future looms large as the kids enter their senior year of school, some prepare for their college entrance exams, while others set their sights on more exotic shores. But first, everyone must survive the perils of romance, friendship, first love, first kisses, and much more. Sebastian (Dalmar Abuzeid) and Mary (Cara Ricketts) settle into domestic life, while Gilbert (Lucas Zumann) dreams big about his future as a doctor. As Anne matures, she’s increasingly forced to grapple with difficult topics, from gender equality to Indigenous rights, and learns that the fight to make the world a better place never ends. As the characters prepare to enter the twentieth century, some continue to look forward while others cling to more traditional ways, but one thing is clear, nothing will ever be the same again. While Anne with an E continues to honour the foundation of L. M. Montgomery’s novel, this reimagined series explores identity, racism, feminism, friendship, bullying, gender parity, and empowerment through the lens of its fierce, starry-eyed, irrepressible 16-year-old protagonist.
