A mini-Degrassi: The Next Generation reunion
August 30th, 2023 under Degrassi. [ Comments: none ]

It has been almost 22 years since Degrassi: The Next Generation debuted. And just like in real life, some of those class, I mean, cast members are still friends.

Recently, Shenae Grimes and Cassie Steel got together and recreated a photo from their high school days.

Can you believe that they are both 33 years old? Because they look just like they did when they played Darcy Edwards and Manny Santos on the teen drama.

Seeing them reunite makes me wish they would have a reunion movie!


Shenae Grimes wants you to know she isn’t Winona Ryder

Shanae Grimes joined TikTok, and obviously, the people on there didn’t watch Degrassi or 90210. That is because they think she is Winona Ryder. She is not.

The actress wanted to prove it, so she dressed up as some of Ryder’s most iconic characters. Now, I am confused because she looks just like the Beetlejuice star.

You know, there are stranger things that one can be mistaken as. See what I did there?


HBO Max is giving us a new generation of Degrassi
January 13th, 2022 under Degrassi, HBO Max. [ Comments: 1 ]

Degrassi has been around for over 40 years, and that is long enough to give us a third generation of the show about high school and everything that comes along with it. Therefore, HBO Max is giving birth to the third take of it.

The original Degrassi launched in 1979 and ran until 1991. Degrassi: The Next Generation ran from 2001-2015. And coming in 2023, we will get the next next generation.

Since this is just an announcement, we don’t know if anyone (minus Drake) from the original two versions will be back in some form. But, I am hoping they find a way to merge them all together. That is what made TNG so special.

Well, that and the fact that they take on uncomfortable issues and make them relatable for the teenage audience. They don’t shy away from the challenging and controversial subjects like abortion, homosexuality, suicide, teenage pregnancy, and so much more.

Unlike American shows that focus on teens, Degrassi is not cheesy or dumbed down. They keep it real, and teens appreciate that. I am hoping they continue to do that with the upcoming ten episodes.

Even though the second sequel will not debut for another year, The Next Generation will begin streaming in the Spring on HBO Max. And the mothership is coming to the Cartoon Network soon. If you have never seen the 1,0, then you should watch it. It is television excellence.

Can you tell I am a Degrassi fan and can’t wait to see what happens next?


BTWF: Dan Levy in Degrassi Goes Hollywood

Before Dan Levy was an Emmy-winning producer for Schitt’s Creek, he played a producer in Degrassi Goes Hollywood. He looks the same now as he did when he was 25 in that 2009 telemovie.


A massive Degrassi High Reunion!
June 3rd, 2019 under Degrassi. [ Comments: none ]
It has been 28 years since the kids from Degrassi High graduated. Over the weekend, several members of the class of ’91 got together for a reunion at Joey Jeremiah’s house. Even though they are 2 years away from their 30th (which means Spike’s daughter Emma is in her 30’s), they still look as close as did when they walked the halls together. Not only that, they look just as good if not even better now than back then.

What was the special reason why Pat Mastroianni invited his classmates to his home for a BBQ now? It was for a very good reason. On June 14th through the 16th, most of them will get together for the first Degrassi convention in Toronto. Instead of that being the first time they all see each since before the turn of the century, they met up yesterday to catch up before the big event. Oh to be a fly on the potato salad.

If you want to spend the weekend with them at DegrassiPalooza, tickets are still available. If someone wants to buy my airfare and put me up, I will join you there. It is a must for fans of the teenage soap opera that tackled so many important issues.

I hope all the Canadian stations cover the event because maybe then they will finally bring the show back for more episodes. They went through so much in high school, let’s see what they are up to now. We only got a very small glimpse of their post-high school lives on Degrassi: The Next Generation. We need more.
