‘Anne of Green Gables: The Good Stars’ will amuse the whole family Thanksgiving night

Gather the family and join us Thanksgiving night – Thursday, Nov. 23 at 7 p.m. – for the second installment of the classic Lucy Maud Montgomery story of a free-spirited teenager on Prince Edward Island. Watch online.

In “Anne of Green Gables: The Good Stars,” Anne Shirley turns 13 and faces complex new situations with her friends. Along the way, she learns from inspirational adults and experiences an escalating friendship with Gilbert. Her free-spirited nature is challenged by her perceived need to be sensible, a journey fraught with confusion and some unfortunate — albeit amusing — mishaps.

This second installment, written and directed by John Kent Harrison, once again stars Martin Sheen as Matthew Cuthbert, along with the return of Ella Ballentine as Anne Shirley and Sara Botsford as Marilla Cuthbert.
