Beloved Canadian teen drama Degrassi will be back in session next year as a darker hour-long TV series.
U.S. streaming platform HBO Max says it’s greenlit a fresh take on the Toronto-set high school saga that’s slated to debut in spring 2023.
It’s described as an “evolution” of the Degrassi story that stays true to the original but “promises fans a journey into exciting new territory, both creatively and dramatically.”
The 10-episode season will shoot in Toronto this summer and be produced in partnership with Canadian production company WildBrain Ltd., who own the rights to the franchise.
