All Critics (27) | Top Critics (12)

Anne With an E captures the winning exuberance of Anne Shirley-who, played by AmyBeth McNulty, is entirely irresistible-while finding some deeper potency in her story.

Anne's never been a simple character. McNulty doesn't play her as one.

May 9, 2017 | Full Review…

The series will be a joy both for Anne superfans and for anyone who likes heart-tugging drama.

May 8, 2017 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

Anne With an E falters in presenting all of this without an ounce of subtlety, as if its own screenplay had been penned by its feverishly imaginative heroine, who idolizes the gothic and the macabre.

May 15, 2017 | Full Review…

Anne with an E dares to get bold and messy. It might push the messaging too far sometimes, but like its heroine it rarely feels insincere. We'll be watching to see where Anne takes us for the remainder of this journey.

May 12, 2017 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

Amybeth McNulty is fabulously awkward playing the red-haired adoptee... but it's often hard to find the original Anne amid the extraneous storylines.
