Why did Susan Clark leave the series?

In the Winter 97-98 issue of the Avonlea Traditions Chronicle there was an article that says:
"Apparently, Clark wanted very much to play Aunt Elizabeth and campaigned successfully for the role. Unfortunately, she was unavailable for filming of the second season due to family reasons. Her character's absence will be explained away as lost at sea, during which time another character will take her place, leaving the door open for Clark to return if the series is renewed for a third season."
The other character(s) who "took her place" are Uncle Malcolm and Cousin Isabel Murray. Susan Clark *was* in the third season of Emily, *but* only in one episode and she didn't play Aunt Elizabeth! See the season 3, episode guide for more information about this episode :) This is the only episode she was in after she left the series. (except in flashbacks)

How many episodes are there of Emily of New Moon?

46 episodes... (13 episodes per season for the first three seasons. 7 episodes for season 4.)

Was Emily of New Moon cancelled? (and why?)

Leila Basen at Salter St. Films gave me this information in February (2000) confirming the news of the cancellation. She said that it was "unfortunately true about Emily and that they found out about the cancellation on Tuesday (Feb. 15th.)" In my opinion, I think the series was cancelled partly due to ratings. (and the fact that CBC kept putting off airing the third and fourth seasons) As of early 2000, Salter Street Films was considering an Emily movie to continue the show, but I have not heard anything else about that in months.

What awards has Emily of New Moon won or been nominated for?

Emily has been nominated for Gemini Awards in both 1998, and 1999. More information about these awards can be found here.

More to come... :)
