Published Jun 09, 2015That was quick. Less than a week after we learned it was cancelled, Canadian teen soap opera Degrassi has found a new home.
The show, which was airing on TeenNick in the United States and MTV in Canada, was not renewed for a 15th season. But everything finds a way in this day and age, so it's already been picked up for another deal.
The next iteration of Degrassi is called Degrassi: Next Class. It will begin airing in early 2016, with 20 episodes on the way. The show will air on the Family Channel in Canada and on Netflix in the United States.
Both Netflix and Degrassi executive producer Steven Sohn announced the news with some tweets.
