31 Things Degrassi Taught You About High School
After 14 dramatic seasons, TeenNick recently canceled Degrassi: The Next Generation, but Netflix has saved it! Following the conclusion of the series on July 31, the streaming site is planning to release Degrassi: Next Class in 2016. The follow-up to the popular '80s series Degrassi High, the second incarnation of the show taught teenagers everywhere how to feel. Those poor kids really went through the wringer over the course of our time with them; we saw eating disorders, pregnancies, a school shooting, struggles with sexuality, rape, drug use, alcohol abuse, and much, much more. But somehow, this resilient group of teens never let it get them down, and we were inspired to live our own lives of perseverance. In honor of the classic show, read on to remember all the wonderful life lessons you learned from the Degrassi crew. We can only hope that Drake will return for the TV finale.
