Netflix is going back to school. The streaming service has renewed the Degrassi: Next Class TV series through the fourth season. On Monday, Netflix announced the second season of Degrassi: Next Class would premiere July 22, 2016. Now, EW reports Netflix has picked up seasons three and four.
The latest installment in the long-running franchise, Netflix describes Degrassi: Next Class as, “…a pull-no-punches dramatic series that tackles the real-life issues of high school students. Telling the stories of ‘Generation Z’, the series focuses on a group of teens as they begin their journey into adulthood.” The cast includes Nikki Gould, Ricardo Hoyos, Andre Kim, Eric Osbourne, Olivia Scriven, Sara Waisglass, Amanda Arcuri, and Ehren Kassam.
Here is more, from EW:
“It is wonderful for our stories to be reaching our core teen audience where they live around the world — on Netflix,” Degrassi: Next Class showrunner Linda Schuyler told EW. “And now it’s even more wonderful to be ordered for yet another two seasons of drama, joy and angst!”
Both seasons 3 and 4 will include 10 episodes, which is the same amount as the show’s first and second seasons.
