There is life after Degrassi: The Next Generation. Just days after TeenNick announced that the long-running teen drama would end next month after 14 seasons, there’s word that Netflix and Canada’s Family Channel have picked up 20 new episodes of the series. Degrassi: Next Class is set to premiere in 2016. Netflix and Degrassi EP Stephen Stohn revealed the news today on Twitter.
Degrassi: The Next Generation is going out with a two-week series finale beginning in July. The send-off starts with an hour-long special Monday, July 20 at 9 PM, with new episodes airing Monday-Friday, at 9 PM, for two weeks. The run concludes on Friday, July 31, with an hourlong look-back special at 8 PM.
