There's nothing quite like word of a show's cancelation to suddenly make everyone appreciate what they've been taking for granted. Late last month the creator of the Canadian drama Anne With an E Moira Walley-Beckett announced that the show's third season would be its last, saying "I wish it could be different, but it cannot." Cue nearly one milion tweets with the hashtag #renewannewithane, fan petitions, and an offer from the creator to write a finale feature film. While there's no word yet on whether The CBC and Netflix will bite on Walley-Beckett's offer, the streamer is releasing the show's ten episode third season today. Also today: Ilana Glazer makes her standup special debut, a long-awaited crossover event and more R. Kelly. Here's what's new and noteworthy on TV this Friday:
