Netflix announced on Monday that Anne With an E, the CBC’s adaptation of Anne of Green Gables, would see its final season in January.

Creator Moira Walley-Beckett confirmed the cancelation, but didn’t say whether the series might live on elsewhere. Netflix and the CBC said in a statement:

We’ve been thrilled to bring the quintessentially Canadian story of Anne With an E to viewers around the world. We’re thankful to producers Moira Walley-Beckett and Miranda de Pencier and to the talented 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.

Still, the comments on Walley-Beckett’s post confirmed that it had a devoted fanbase. As with so many other canceled Netflix favorites—Sense8, One Day at a Time, The OA, Tuca & Bertie—fans responded on Instagram and Twitter asking Netflix and the CBC to renew and/or save Anne With an E. Via a series of slightly confusing hashtags, fans shared their favorite moments, lobbied for a season 4, and stressed why the show was important to them.
