Anne of Green Gables Tv Show series 2 : Coming back 2018 ?
“I adore Anne! Exploring and expanding her story with new depth for a new generation has been exhilarating!” Walley-Beckett said in a statement.Lucy Maud Montgomery’s Anne Shirley is one of the most appealing figures in literature, a girl who is so enamoured of imagination, words and wonder itself that you’d think it would be hard to go wrong with the story. She’s a universally understood and adored character. But, in the Canadian context, there are issues. Mainly nostalgia.
The opening credits are a clue to the direction this adaptation is taking. The Anne figure is presented as a gorgeous force of nature, an emblem of beauty and power. And it is somewhat startling to find the Tragically Hip’s Ahead by a Century used over the opening credits. It’s a song with profound resonance for so many Canadians. And the line “Illusions of some day casting a golden light” amply works its magical power here.
“I like imagining better than remembering,” Anne Shirley says at one point, obviously to camouflage pain, but there is emphatic truth in it. And that statement is great context for this adaptation.
It imagines rather than remembers or reveres previous versions, no matter how beloved they were. This Anne should be approached and appreciated in the same spirit – it’s a sublimely reinvigorated Anne of Green Gables.
Though the 2nd season of the series has not been announced officially but after seeing such a positive feedback of people its not more to wait when netflix will going to announce for its next sequel.For more updates stay tuned and connected and we will make you provide with latest updates of favourite tv series.
