Degrassi Next Class: Season 1

10 Episodes - 2016

Welcome to Next Class

Degrassi: Next Class, the newest iteration of the Degrassi franchise, is a pull-no-punches dramatic series that tackles the real-life issues of Generation Z. With equal humour, angst and heart, the students of Degrassi grapple with a series of “firsts” as they make their way through high school— pushing their own limits and testing the bonds of family and friends.

The students are confronted with a range of issues: from homophobia, racism, substance abuse and violence to burgeoning sexuality, body image, heartbreak and the complications of dating in the social media age. You are not alone. Whatever it takes!
