In their initial announcement about Twitter, HBO Max confirmed that “the next class of students will arrive in 2023.” As a result, we’ll have to wait at least a year before the streaming service releases a new “Degrassi” revival. More, The Hollywood Reporter Note that filming will begin this summer in Toronto, we can use this method to help us narrow down the exact time next year new episodes can be expected.
To help us speculate, we can check out another recent HBO Max series, “College Girl Sex Lives,” which begins filming November 2020 (via Film & Television Industry Alliance). Then “The Sex Lives of College Girls” premiered on November 18, 2021 – just about exactly a year after filming began. With that in mind, we’ll likely see the new “Degrassi” sometime in mid-2023, if it follows the same pattern that premieres about a year after production begins.
One thing we do know for sure is that, unlike its predecessors, the new “Degrassi” will feature hour-long episodes (every other iteration sticks to the 30-minute format). In a statement, showrunners Lara Azzopardi and Julia Cohen said, “What excites us most perhaps about the revival of this beloved franchise is turning it into a full-length feature film. We’re honored to be given the opportunity to lead this development and bring this iconic series back to people’s homes” (via THR).
HBO Max is also claiming the rights to “Degrassi: The Next Generation” – meaning fans can watch all 14 seasons while they wait for the new revival to premiere.
