"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 third season of
Road to Avonlea (1990–1996). You may be looking for the third season of Project Green Gables (2015–2018) or Anne with an E (2017–2019).

Season 3 is the third season of Canadian TV series Road to Avonlea (1990–1996). It premiered with "The Ties That Bind" on January 12, 1992, and ended with "Old Friends, Old Wounds" on April 5, 1992.


Olivia’s simple wedding plans get wildly out of hand once Hetty takes over and alienates everyone in the family. Sara also has trouble with Hetty and trades places with a street-smart waif that passes as her double to get away from her controlling grasp. She lands in serious danger though when she runs away from home with Gus Pike.

Felix starts his own delivery service with the King horse Blackie, but a terrible accident occurs during a competition with a business rival. Felicity is invited to apply for a scholarship at Kingscourt Ladies College in Nova Scotia. In an effort to impress her fellow Kingsport peers, Felicity claims that her real parents were dead and that she was the inheritor of a vast fortune. Marilla Cuthbert dies without a will, leaving Rachel Lynde to fight for Green Gables.

Season 3 also features more guest stars including Christopher Lloyd who won an Emmy for playing Avonlea’s effervescent new school teacher, Alistair Dimple.
