What’s This TV Show About?
Streaming on the Netflix paid subscription platform, Degrassi: Next Class stars Amanda Arcuri, Amir Bageria, Soma Bhatia, Jamie Bloch, Chelsea Clark, Reiya Downs, Ana Golja, Nikki Gould, Ricardo Hoyos, Ehren Kassam, André Dae Kim, Lyle Lettau, Spencer Macpherson, Eric Osborne, Parham Rownaghi, Dante Scott, Olivia Scriven, Sara Waisglass, Richard Walters, Dalia Yegavian, Stephanie Moore, Michael Brown, and Stefan Brogren.
Set in Toronto, Ontario, the fifth series in the Degrassi television franchise, the Degrassi: Next Class TV show centers on the students at the Degrassi Community School. Despite the half-hour format, there are serial elements to the storylines. Episodes and seasonal arcs typically shine a spotlight on the kind of issues adolescents have to grapple with, as they grow into young adults. Body image, appearance, social media, gender identity, sexuality, sexual activity and consent, race and racism, mental health, and cultural acclimation are among the themes of Degrassi: Next Class.
Because Degrassi: Next Class airs on Canada’s F2N TV channel, its cancellation and renewal chances depend — at least in part — on its Canadian ratings. On top of that, Nielsen doesn’t monitor or report on the performance of streaming TV series, so it is difficult to gauge how a Netflix show is doing, unless the platform publicizes it. Flying blind, I suspect F2N will renew Degrassi: Next Class for season five, and Netflix will follow suit. This long-running franchise has developed a fiercely loyal fanbase. Last I heard, series co-creator Linda Schuyler was brainstorming seasons five and six. Now, while we don’t track television ratings in Canada, from my perch, I can see when our neighbors to the North cancel or renew TV shows, so I’ll update this page with any breaking developments.
