Netflix Saves ‘Degrassi’ – 20 New Episodes To Air 2016
Shocker: canceled TeenNick show Degrassi has found a new home in Netflix. 20 new episodes of “Next Class” will air in 2016.
I guess… rejoice?
Both Netflix and Canada’s Family Channel will air 20 new episodes of Degrassi starting in early 2016. What’s more, the latest version of the show is also gaining a new subtitle: Next Class. “We are energized and excited to work with Family Channel as we tell stories for the new post-millennial teen cohort known as Generation Z, most of whom weren’t even born when Degrassi returned in 2001,” said Degrassi co-creator and executive producer Linda Schuyler in a statement.
Members of the show’s mammoth cast who will reprise their roles in Next Class include—deep breath—Amanda Arcuri as Lola Pacini; Reiya Downs as Shay Powers; Ana Golja as Zoe Rivas; Nikki Gould as Grace Cardinal; Ricardo Hoyos as Zig Novak; Ehren Kassam as Jonah Haak; Andre Kim as Winston Chu; Lyle Lettau as Tristan Milligan; Spencer Macpherson as Hunter Hollingsworth; Eric Osborne as Miles Hollingsworth III; Olivia Scriven as Maya Matlin; Sara Waisglass as Frankie Hollingsworth; and Richard Walters as Deon “Tiny” Bell.
