"Alternate reasons for cancellation were given on November 27 in response to a Twitter campaign to save the show, namely a lack of audience growth in the 25-54 age range."

This is heartbreaking and a travesty. I was one of many who contacted Walley-Beckett and pleaded with her to keep the series going! But it was no use, she threw in the towel. :(

It's no surprise why it was cancelled. CBC was getting pressured to end the series by people who don't like diversity, social justice, and the inconvenient reality of our shared history that the show brought to light.

It comes down to ratings and money. There wasn't enough to sustain the series.

According to Catto, cancelling Anne With An E was a difficult decision made jointly by the Canadian public broadcaster and Netflix, with one main factor being that the show didn't register enough of an audience boost in the 25-54 age range.
