Today’s the day I officially retire the “Degrassi Season 10 News” page. R.I.P. Season 10…and Morty. I’m not deleting it, it’s just going to disappear from the navigation bar up top.
I’ve created a page compiling all of my grades for Season 10 here. The Season 10 Grades page is different from the grade pages for the other 9 seasons. For those I just listed my grade for the main plot. Because there were so many plots in Season 10, I listed my grades for each individual plot in every episode.
Now onto Season 11…..
I just wanted to briefly recap the key information we’ve learned about about Season 11 so far. Stephen Stohn officially cleared up any confusion about the episode production count this morning. When we first heard 1045-1048 were being cut from Season 10, we initially thought they were being pushed back to be the Spring Break Special to kick off Season 11. We’ve now learned that they actually only produced TWO episodes, which will be the one-hour Spring Break Special this summer.
Season 11 begins on Monday, July 18th. They’re doing a summer block of episodes similar to last year’s The Boiling Point. New episodes will air Mondays-Thursdays, with repeats airing on Fridays. This season’s summer block will last 7 weeks (the final episode will air on Thursday, September 1st).
Not all of the episodes are two-parters. Here’s a list of the current episode titles:
1101/1102 – SPRING BREAK SPECIAL
1103 – LoveGame
1104 – What’s My Age Again?
1105 – Idioteque
1106/1107 – Cry Me A River
1108/1109 – Dirt Off Your Shoulder
1110/1111 – Paper Planes
1112/1113 – Should’ve Said No
1114/1115 – U Don’t Know
1116/1117 – Lose Yourself
1118/1119 – Mr. Brightside
1120/1121 – Extraordinary Machine

NEW CHARACTERS: Degrassi held auditions for 4 new characters, but in the end have only decided to use three of them (looks like Mo was scrapped):
Katie Matlin (played by Chloe Rose)
She works hard and plays hard. A gifted athlete, she’s been training to make the National Under 17 Woman’s Soccer Team. She’s pretty, but fresh-faced, her years of mastering the bicycle kick keeping her from learning how to cake on the make-up. She’s driven and thorough when it comes to academics and extracurriculars; she’s blunt and direct when talking to other girls, even fun-loving BFF Marisol; but when it comes to talking to boys or about matters of the heart, she clams up. The soccer field prepared her for a lot of things, but not love.
Jake Martin (played by Justin Kelly)
A man of few words, Degrassi’s new heartthrob is good with his hands and quick with a grin. He spends most of his free time at the cottage. After his mom died, he and his dad renovated their lake cabin in her honor. All of his shirtless hard work eventually paid off…especially when girls started admiring his boyish good looks and strong physique. Let’s just say he has made out with his share of bikini clad Muskoka girls, but he never let them get in the way of the stuff he truly loves: watching sports, hanging with friends, fishing,mad fresh dancing and camping. He’s a guy’s guy who doesn’t play games and means what he says – all with a good dose of humor and charm. the school’s newest heartthrob who be joining the show next season. Turns out, Jake has a childhood connection to Clare, worst still, it’s a “friendship” that Jake’s meddlesome dad seems very keen on having them rekindle.
Imogen Moreno (played by Cristine Prosperi)
Fun, energetic, with a magnetic look and intense stare–Imogen would hate for anyone to think she’s boring, so she goes to great lengths to stand out from the crowd: bandaging her unwounded wrists, or even posing as a homeless kid to beg for change. She puts on the airs of being an enlightened individual, but it’s a ploy to manipulate those around her. She worries one day someone will discover her secret: she’s a normal kid looking for excitement in her life.
SEASON 11 STORYLINES: There’s a little bit of information about what’s going to happen in Season 11, though I’m guessing they (Epitome) will be reluctant to give out too much based on the recent splurge of spoilers.
*TVAddict, a Canadian tv website, listed some of the storylines in an article, saying “one student of the male persuasion tackle the taboo that is shoplifting, another who is no stranger to trouble finding herself confronted with cocaine, while a third fan favorite is forced to deal with the baggage that comes when two squabbling parents fail to handle their divorce as maturely as one might hope.”
*New character Jake has a past connection to Clare, and they will be involved in some capacity.
*Adam will continue to deal with the issues that come with being transgender (though the situations might not be as emotional as My Body Is A Cage)
*Fiona will have a new love interest.
*The Spring Break Special will heavily feature Drew and Bianca. The special will guest star KeKe Palmer. Below is on-set video footage a guy shot while they were filming the episode. It’s Bianca participating in a freestyle dance competition:
Also, a guy named Elias Edraki posted a youtube video recently, announcing that he will be playing a character named Anson in the Spring Break Special. He’ll only be appearing in that episode:
