    Post Degrassi - The Next Generation

    Whole new show with season premiere being a 1 hour reunion show Air's October 14th.

    Naturally, it's time for their 10th anniversary high school reunion and that's the premise and the perfect launching point for Degrassi: The Next Generation. Joey (Pat Mastroianni), Caitlin Stacey Mistysyn), Snake (Stefan Brogren) and Lucy (Anais Granofsky) return for a one-hour special, to kick-off the series. Returning to Degrassi for their 10-year reunion, they are reunited with Spike (Amanda Stepto) and other alumni who have descended on the school from all points of the world. The special also re-introduces viewers to Spike's daughter, Emma (Miriam McDonald). Now 12 years old, Emma is entering a new phase in her life: Grade seven and Junior High, at the newly refurbished Degrassi Community School. The remaining 13-part series follows Emma and her "next generation" schoolmates

    So far in Canada it's CTV. I just saw some reruns tonight. If you can get CTV thats great if not, I hope they syndicate it for all of you. They are starting to show previews for the first show.

    Wow! I can't wait to see Spike's baby all grown up... *sigh* I know it'll be a while before the new series airs in the US, if ever... I buy all my Canadian-released videos from videoflicks.com , and I saw that they had some of the older series on VHS. Damn, I loved that show.

    Zel, what years were the series shot? Degrassi Junior High & Degrassi High? I'm too lazy to work out the MCMLXXXXXII thingie on the end of the credits. I just thought you might know. I have a friend in Canada who used to see the cast wondering about on the street during their breaks - that would've been a buzz! I wonder if they knew it was going to be a cult classic the world over??

    3 more days!
    "Wake up in the morning, feeling shy and lonely,
    Gee, I gotta go to this school.
    I don't think I can make it, don't think I can take it,
    I wonder what I'm gonna do.
    But when I look around and see,
    That someone is smiling right at me,
    Wait, someone talkin' to me,
    Hey, I got a new friend..."

    The previews are starting to show a bit more. Snake is a teacher... Spike well has straight hair (brown hair)... Their baby Emma is now 12 and in jr high. I love the idea that I have something good to watch with my kids and I can get all nostalgic at the same time

    Degrassi started in 1979 and ended in 1991

    Well the show was pretty good. My son is interested which is great I was disappointed it didn't deal more with the old characters. The twins weren't there but Lucy, Joey, Snake, Wheels (looks totally different), and Kaitlin were there.

    well I watched the reunion special, glad I saw some of the old cast, I won't be watching the new series, and i agree with you Zel, I wish they would have dealt with the old cast if even for just that one show, and I wish they had more of the old crew. What's wrong with Wheel's voice, that ain't normal, and he had a very small part for one of the main characters from the original show. He was even from the original Kids of Degrassi Street

    I know I thought that was odd too. I was racking my brain trying to remember what happened in the last few shows of Degrassi. What is wrong with lucy in real life

    I am glad they didn't go cheap and fluffy and put Joey and Caitlyn back together.

    I won't be watching but I hope my kids do.

    Question

    Ok, so you'll have to tell me what happened since I don't get those shows here. I used to watch it here, I guess it was on PBS. Anyway, so what happened with Joey and Caitlin? How did everyone else turn out?
