The N, the nighttime network for teens, said Wednesday it has gone into production on a sixth season of Degrassi: The Next Generation.
The network plans to roll out 19 new episodes starting in October. For the first time, the series will follow the graduating classmates as they adjust to college life, full-time jobs, and new responsibilities. Season six also will feature returning students, as well as introduce new students.
The Emmy nominated Degrassi: The Next Generation (shortened to 'Degrassi' from Season 10-14) is a spin-off of the long running Degrassi franchise from Linda Schuyler, creator of Kids on Degrassi Street, Degrassi Junior High, Degrassi High, and School's Out. Similar to its predecessor the teens of Degrassi Community School face a variety of issues, from sexual abuse, to drug addiction, to heartaches. It's never a dull moment in the halls of Degrassi.
Seasons 15+ air as 'Degrassi: New Class' and has its own forum.
