‘Anne of Green Gables’ Netflix Reboot: 8 Essential Things We Demand to See

“Isn’t it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?” — Anne Shirley, “Anne of Green Gables

Let’s hope Netflix keeps it that way. Upon learning the news that the streaming service is rebooting the beloved Canadian children’s book series from the 1890s into another TV show, fans simultaneously cheered and feared. Both Lucy Maud Montgomery’s “Anne” novels and the 1980s miniseries adaptations are some of the most beloved Canadian exports ever (sorry not sorry, Justin Bieber). Much is at stake here, and Netflix, showrunner/writer Moira Walley-Beckett and director Niki Caro cannot, dare not mess this up.

Filming has begun on the fourth season of the Reign TV show on The CW.  The fanciful historical series stars Adelaide Kane, Megan Follows, Anna Popplewell, and Celina Sinden. Below, check out the announcement tweet from the show's writers. Reign was renewed along with virtually the rest of The CW's slate, back in March.

Season three of Reign premiered Friday, October 9, 2015, but while this season had fewer episodes (18; »
