Good news, everybody. ‘Anne with an E’ has been renewed for season 3. So expect to see much more Lucas as Gilbert on your screens.
A Netflix and CBC original series, Anne with an E has been renewed for a 10-episode third season, which will begin filming this winter. Based on the original novel Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery, this updated series tells the same coming-of-age tale we all know and love while also taking on timely issues like identity, prejudice, feminism, bullying, gender parity, diversity and empowerment.
Season 2 ended with Gilbert (Lucas Jade Zumann) telling Anne (Amybeth McNulty) he planned to stay and work the farm with his family instead of leaving early for college, meaning there’s still a chance those two crazy kids will get together. After all, it’s hard to ignore that bit of foreshadowing when Gilbert asked whether Anne intended to follow in her teacher’s footsteps and have a “tragical romance,” to which Anne not-so-innocently responded, “Remains to be seen?”
Season 3 is expected to premiere on Netflix in 2019.
According to Variety, Lucas has been cast in another new project, an indie film called ‘To the Stars’.
Producers announced Wednesday that production has wrapped in Oklahoma for “To The Stars,” with “Land Ho!” director Martha Stephens helming from a script by Shannon Bradley-Colleary. The story, set in the 1960s, centers on the powerful friendship forged between a shy farmer’s daughter (played by Hayward) and Liberato’s reckless new girl.
Lucas Zumann (“20th Century Women”), Jordana Spiro (“Ozark”), and Adelaide Clemens (“Rectify”) round out the cast.
According to EW, ‘Anne With an E’ will be released on Netflix on July 6. So just a month to wait! You can also see the trailer below, featuring lots of Lucas’ character Gilbert Blythe.
Netflix unveiled the trailer and announced the release date for the second season of Anne with an E on Friday. The adaptation of L.M. Montgomery’s 1908 classic Anne of Green Gables will continue on July 6, when the entire 10-episode second season will hit the streaming service.
The official Instagram account of ‘Anne With An E’ has posted that the series will return this fall. No release date is given, but at least we now know the general time frame.
See you this fall on @cbc! #annewithane #kindredspirits #fall2018 #cbc #annetheseries #season2
