The CBC/Netflix drama series Anne with an E has been cancelled.
Creator and showrunner Moira Walley-Beckett says in an Instagram post that they've "reached the end of the red Green Gables road" after three seasons.
The show, which premiered in March 2017, was inspired by Lucy Maud Montgomery's classic novel Anne of Green Gables and expanded upon the book to dig into the backstory of the plucky teenage protagonist.
Irish-Canadian actress Amybeth McNulty starred as the Prince Edward Island orphan, who is taken in by aging siblings, played by R.H. Thomson and Geraldine James.
Its third and final season finished airing on the CBC on Sunday and will hit Netflix on Jan. 3.
"My heart is heavy but I am so proud of this show," Vancouver-raised Walley-Beckett said Monday on Instagram, praising the team behind the show.
"I am grateful and humbled by this experience and I truly feel blessed to have had the opportunity to share this beautiful, meaningful story with all of you, my kindred spirits. I know you have loved this series as much as I have and I thank you for that forever and a day."
In a joint statement, the CBC and Netflix thanked Walley-Beckett, co-executive producer Miranda de Pencier, and the cast and crew "for their incredible work in sharing Anne's story with a new generation."
"We hope fans of the show love this final season as much as we do, and that it brings a satisfying conclusion to Anne's journey."
