Last Updated by Lucie Raposo on

Based on the international best-selling novel written more than a century ago by Canadian author Lucy Maud Montgomery, the Emmy Award-winning Anne of Green Gables follows the enchanthing life of imaginative and fiery-tempered orphan Anne Shirley.

Placed by mistake - or destiny - with elder siblings Marilla (Colleen Dewhurst) and Matthew (Richard Farnsworth) Cuthbert, who wanted to adopt a boy to help around the farm, a fanciful Anne Shirley (Megan Follows) makes her way in the world in the acclaimed tale of discovery, coming of age, friendship, and love, that has touched generations of audiences around the world.

Rhode Island PBS is pleased to present a binge-worthy marathon of Anne of Green Gables episodes beginning at 9 a.m. on Saturday, November 25. If you love the story and would like to share it with your children or grandchildren, be sure to catch this final broadcast before the television rights expire!  

The adventures of Anne Shirley wrap up with presentation of the contemporary adaptation, Anne of Green Gables The Good Stars at 5 p.m.
