Netflix’s Anne with an E season two now filming in Ontario

Principal photography is now underway for the second season of Netflix’s Anne with an E, utilising locations in Ontario and Prince Edward Island (PEI). Distributed by Netflix and co-produced by Northwood Entertainment and CBC, the show’s new 10-episode season is scheduled for a 2018 release.

We can't wait to share season two with CBC audiences next year and showcase Anne's incredible talent and creative team to the entire world once again in partnership with Netflix."

Elizabeth Bradley, Vice President of Content at Netflix adds: “we are thrilled to not only return to Green Gables for more adventures of the effervescent and beloved Anne Shirley, but also to bring the stunning landscapes of Prince Edward Island and Ontario to Netflix members around the world.”

As the setting for Lucy Maud Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables, the PEI’s sprawling countryside has become synonymous with the classic Canadian novel. Due its lack of tax incentives however, the PEI has failed to attract production activity outside of adaptations of Maud’s novel.

Ontario on the other hand is one of Canada’s most internationally recognised production hubs. Projects that shoot within the province can expect to receive a 35% tax credit upon spending at least 75% of their budget locally. A higher rate of 40% is available for first-time producers.

Ontario recently played host to the Netflix miniseries, Alias Grace, which shot on location in the Kingston Penitentiary.
