I love Degrassi. I grew up watching reruns of Degrassi Jr High and Degrassi High on CBC when I was in high school. And so, when a new generation of the show started, I was thrilled. The Next Class is the newest rendition of Degrassi, and I was so excited to see some of my faves are back. Miles, and Zoe, in particular. As well as Lola! She was more of a side character in the previous series, so it’s nice for her to have more of a character in this one. Annoyed by all the Maya stuff, but c’est la vie! If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you should totally check out the show! It’s on Netflix, y’all! Here are the other reasons why you should immediately go watch Degrassi Next Class on Netflix NOW:
- Super relevant to what teens and young adults are dealing with
It’s got dating struggles, feminism, masterbation and drug use. And so, so much more! It’s very relatable for teens and young adults, and I think it might even be something parents could watch with their teens and young adults. It’s got the right amount of drama to keep it interesting and fun, too.
- Super cute fashion
I’m pretty sure past series were costumed exclusively by Le Chateau, I am not sure if it still is. Either way, the outfits and accessories they have are SO CUTE. Check them out 😉
- Funny Degrassi universe versions of social media
Facerange, and Hastygram are just a few of the real life social media platforms they create their own versions of. It’s pretty fun to see what they’ll call things.
- Not many episodes yet
As of right now, I can only access 10 episodes from the first season. I finished it in about a day and a half. It’s so easy to go through them all so fast!!
- The next season is coming … soon
Season 2 was allegedly released July 22. However, I don’t seem to have access to it yet. So hopefully I gain access to it soon!! Season one had kind of a pretty big cliffhanger, and I want to know what happens.
