Emmy-win­ning pro­duc­er­writer Moira Wal­ley-Beck­ett of “Break­ing Bad’’ fame cre­ated the se­ries based on Lucy Maud Mont­gomery’s clas­sic novel “Anne of Green Gables.’’ The sec­ond sea­son will fea­ture episodes writ­ten by a team of fe­male writ­ers, in­clud­ing Wal­ley-Beck­ett, Jane Maggs, Sh­er­nold Ed­wards, Kathryn Borel, Amanda Fa­hey and Naledi Jack­son.

“We’re so proud of the over­whelm­ing re­sponse from view­ers across the globe,’’ North­wood En­ter­tain­ment pres­i­dent Mi­randa de Pencier said in a state­ment. “I’m equally proud that we have a very tal­ented team of fe­male writ­ers, led by the bril­liant Moira Wal­ley-Beck­ett, to add to the rich­ness of the world.’’
