Degrassi: The Next Generation is a pull-no-punches dramatic take on the real-life issues of high school life. With 385 episodes and 14 seasons to date, Degrassi continues to entertain and educate. With equal measures of humour, angst and heart, the students of Degrassi grapple with a series of “firsts” as they begin their journey into adulthood.
Pushing their own limits and testing the bonds of family and friends, the students find their own ways to deal with a far-reaching range of issues, from homophobia, abuse, and violence to burgeoning sexuality, dating and heartbreak. Degrassi: The Next Generation continues to bring viewers together with the series’ core message: you are not alone.
Degrassi: The Next Generation premiered in Canada on CTV in 2001, and the series was picked up by The N network in the US (a branch of Nickelodeon now known as TeenNick) and distributed worldwide in over 140 territories.
