Thanks to Degrassi and TeenNick (and VV Brown) for putting together a STELLAR promo, which you can view below.
You know they did this so we’d spend the next month chewing over what it all means, right? Below are my SPECULATIONS (as in don’t go around believing what I say below is 100% fact…I could be completely way off base) for what’s in store for Season 10:
Drew vs. Riley
Riley is THE star athlete at Degrassi and it looks like he may have competition from Drew for that Alpha spot. Throw in Riley’s insecurities about being openly gay, and this could be a heated rivalry.
Adam is transgendered
I believe we can all agree on this…it’s great they’re bringing a completely new issue into the fold.
Bianca: The girl who makes boyfriends disappear
Jenna was supposed to be a boyfriend stealer in season 9, but it wasn’t all that effective of a title for her. She made it clear that she liked KC, but HE was the one that broke up with Clare for her…it wasn’t like Jenna stepped in and was like “KC is mine, I’m taking him” with a cold-hearted attitude. Maybe Bianca can be that girl.
Anya: The two-faced girl
This is the most surprising. Looks like they’ve decided to flip her character around and make her a bad girl…and the snake is a perfect touch. How bad will she be?
Jenna: The girl who doesn’t know her own secret
I haven’t the slightest idea what Jenna’s secret could be. But apparently it’ll cause trouble for her and KC. And even if they break up, I’m currently not seeing KC and Clare quickly getting back together.
With Bruce and Johnny gone, Fitz has been promoted to official school bully (with Conor, Wesley and Dave as his main targets).
Clare and Eli
I wanna assume they become a couple. AND I wanna assume that they become the Caitlin and Claude (Degrassi High reference) of DTNG. Oh, and that whole death thing? I wanna believe that it’s a suicide at the school like in “Showtime” (another Degrassi High reference)…hence the lockdown.
Alli and Drew
Dave likes Alli (the setup for that began in Why Can’t This Be Love). Alli likes Drew. Drew likes Alli (who has somehow propelled herself to popular girl status). Dave loses.
The good news: Fiona gets a storyline. The bad news: it’s about her getting abused in some way, shape or form.
Here’s the words on the Wheel of Degrassi at the end:
