Recently, we broke the news that “Anne of Green Gables” will be debuting on Netflix sometime next year. With pure excitement also came eagerness to find out when exactly the series would come out.
Well, we’re here to tell you you don’t have to wait too long to relive the show. Another new adaptation of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s classic novel is coming to PBS… on Thanksgiving night!
This version is unrelated to the upcoming Netflix series and was produced in part by Montgomery’s granddaughter, Kate MacDonald Butler. Anne Shirley will be played by childhood actress, Ella Balletin. According to Canada’s Global News, this particular adaption is a “a more modern take on the story, with darker, edgier moments that take it out of the past and into the present.”
In the PBS TV Schedule description, it says: “Savor a new adaptation of the classic novel about the orphaned Anne, placed in the care of uptight Marilla and her brother Matthew, played by Martin Sheen. Neither Anne nor Marilla could predict the profound effect they’d have on each other’s lives.”
Watch the official trailer below:
