"I read in a book once that a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, but I've never been able to believe it. I don't believe a rose would be as nice if it was called a thistle or a skunk-cabbage."
This article is about the second season of
Road to Avonlea (1990–1996). You may be looking for the second season of Green Gables Fables (2014–2016), Project Green Gables (2015–2018) or Anne with an E (2017–2019).

Season 2 is the second season of Road to Avonlea (1990–1996). It premiered with "Sara's Homecoming" on December 2, 1990, only three weeks after the broadcast of Season 1's finale. The season ended with "Misfits and Miracles" on February 24, 1991.


Sara and her cousins continue to wreak havoc and land in trouble, much to the adults’ dismay and disapproval. 

After her father's death, Sara's stay in Avonlea is permanent. She visits a fortune teller in hopes of reuniting with her father, but is consequently kidnapped. Hetty recruits a new pupil, Gus Pike, and the King family learns about his mysterious past. Rachel and Marilla adopt twins, Davey and Dora Keith, but Davey proves to be troublesome. Janet King announces she’s pregnant with fourth child. Jasper and Olivia become engaged after a rival returns to win Olivia's hand in marriage. Alec forms a hockey team to challenge the town sawmill owner, who is strip cutting trees a mile from Avonlea.

In addition to the light-hearted and fun-filled stories that dominated the first season of Road to Avonlea, each of these episodes is a textured and compelling exploration of life in the mythical farming village of Avonlea. The second season is a treasure trove of adventure, mystery, romance, family rivalry and comedy.
