Recently, a great in-depth article from The New York Times Magazine came out, detailing a lot of Moira Walley-Beckett’s plans and ambitions for Anne the Series (aka ‘Anne with an E’). It’s well worth a read over at this link.
One of the important tidbits it confirmed was that the first season is…
“the first of a hoped-for five (seasons), all based on the first novel”
In essence, Moira has a five-year plan for the show, and all five seasons will be based on Anne of Green Gables. Which makes sense, as throughout that first book, several years pass and there’s a lot of material that can be featured and elaborated on. It also means (hopefully) that certain beloved characters will be with us beyond the first season.
That makes me think about those times I wanted to grab you and kiss you. But you didn’t know, so I would just pretend everything was cool. But really it was killing me. And I remember all those mornings before you even put on your makeup, when I would think to myself, “My God, she is beautiful.” And it hurt so much because I knew I could never tell you. But it was worth it just to be there looking at you.
