I apologize for the lack of updates recently…there has been NOTHING out there in Degrassi land about Season 9 except for TeenNick’s promos (which you can view here). Well the good news is we’re halfway through September so the updates should start flowing in probably starting sometime next week, as we reach the October 4th premiere on CTV.
Meanwhile, the cast and crew were back in action today at the Epitome studios (doesn’t it seem like they’re always on a hiatus these days?). They’ve begun shooting the 4-parter titled “The Rest of My Life” (920-923). Looks like they’re churning out another feature-length film, and who can blame them with the success of Degrassi Goes Hollywood.
“The Rest of My Life” will be directed by Stefan Brogren. Once they finish shooting for the 4-parter, they’re gonna go back and shoot episodes 917-919 (ep. titles unknown).
In other news, there had been NO word about the return of Liberty (Sarah Barrable-Tishauer) in Season 9…until Sunday. Thanks to some rabid Liberty fans harrassing The Exec all summer, he finally said she WILL make an appearance this season.
Also, TeenNick will have another every-episode-ever Degrassi marathon starting Friday October 2nd. Scattered throughout the marathon will be sneak peaks of the new season (I’m sure the sneak peaks will air during primetime). And maybe they’ll even TELL us when Degrassi premieres on TeenNick…I think they really enjoy holding that kind of news until the last possible moment.
