About The Road to Avonlea
Road to Avonlea is a Canadian Television series that first aired in Canada in the 1990s, and is similar in style to other classic dramas like Little House on the Prairie, Anne of Green Gables, or Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman. It aired between 1990 and 1996 and aired shortly after the Canadian airing in the United States. It was produced by Sullivan Films in association with CBC and the Disney Channel. Based on a number of books by L.M. Montgomery, (especially her novels The Story Girl and The Golden Road), the television show follows the adventures of 10 year-old Sara Stanley, a rambunctious girl not too dissimilar from Anne of Green Gables. Other characters from various Montgomery books make appearances throughout the show including several characters from Anne of Green Gables.
Eventually, the show began to adapt into its own entity, using the Avonlea and Montgomery characters more as the premise for the show, and not trying to make a direct adaptation of any of the books. As the show got older, viewers were able to watch their favorite characters, who they had grown attached to over the years, grow up and face new experiences. This created for a heartwarming and familiar drama that helped win audiences from all over North America over to these charming characters.
Roughly 30 book titles have been released by independent authors based off stories found in the Road to Avonlea television show. The series is set in the fictitious town of Avonlea on Prince Edward Island in the early 1900s. It follows the lead character of Montreal heiress Sara Stanley, a wealthy 10 year-old girl sent to Avonlea to live with her two maiden aunts, Hetty and Olivia. He wanted Sara to be nearer to her late mother's family after he is placed under house arrest for a scandalous embezzlement crime.
Over the years, the show began to change from being Sarah's experiences in Avonlea and eventually came to focus chiefly on the King family and their experiences in the town of Avonlea. Sara Stanley ended up leaving the show after a few season, making one guest appearance later on in the show. It was cancelled in 1996 after 7 incredible seasons, a longer than usual run for a television drama. The show had a terrific run, garnering many rewards and becoming a favorite among many. It had become a show as loved as classics like the Anne of Green Gables movies or even the long-running Little House on the Prairie drama. All in all, the show had 91 episodes, along with a reunion movie after all episodes had finished airing.
Road to Avonlea: The Complete Third Season Remastered DVD Set continues the magnificent TV show with new drama, new stories, and new characters. Featuring a variety of memorable episodes, moments, and guest appearances, Road to Avonlea: The Complete Third Season Remastered DVD Set is a terrific continuation of the show.
