Season 12 idea for writer Cole Bastedo: read my blog and create things based on what you find here, like Degrassi Radio. Oh, wait...*troll face* (I'm taking credit for that whether it's true or not!) Please create a socially awkward character named Kary who spends all his time blogging in the Media Immersion lab, and is seduced by Bianca in exchange for him hacking the school computer and changing her grades.

Stephen Stohn has tweeted that in a couple of weeks, the show will begin brainstorming ideas for Season 12.  He’s asked that fans send him any thoughts/ideas/etc., about what we’d like to see.  You don’t need me to tell you what an overwhelming majority of the fans have said they wanted to see most: Eclare, suicide and the return of original TNG cast members.

ECLARE: The show panders to Eclare fans enough as it is, so for the love of God don’t just slap them back together.  I’m all for an Eclare reunion if done right, but I also wonder how it’ll work out if they get together before Eli graduates since he’ll be leaving the show before Clare.

SUICIDE: I’ve backed off my desire for this one a bit, especially since Stephen came out and admitted how difficult it would be to pull this storyline off.  This isn’t Degrassi High anymore.  They were able to do it because Degrassi was an educational show back then.  Degrassi is now more entertainment driven.  One way to do it would be for it to occur because of bullying, an issue that’s been very prevalent in the news…it’s still a topic that has to be done with extreme care to avoid serious backlash.

BRING BACK OLD TNG CAST MEMBERS: People seem to think that the old cast members are just sitting around doing nothing with their lives, waiting for the day when they’ll receive a call that Degrassi wants them to come back.  The show has made it clear that it wants to constantly move forward, and implementing some sort of return of a former character (even if it is for just one episode) has to fit into the context of the show…Johnny DiMarco’s return during Hide and Seek is an example.  However, The Stohn has said there is potential for a reunion show of some sort.

***************

A lot of other ideas have mainly been relationship stuff…blah.  You can click here to see a list of ideas fans has submitted, there are some amazing ones in there as well.  But other than relationships, what are some storyline ideas you’d like to see in Season 12?  Part of me kind of wishes we already knew how the rest of Season 11 will play out, because then I could give specific ideas for individual characters.  But generic ideas are still wide open.

For me, if I had to choose one thing I would LOVE to see a car accident storyline (no, Eli crashing Morty doesn’t count).  There’s just so many options here: A) One of the characters could be drunk. B) A character or group of characters is hit by a drunk driver. C) The driver could be distracted by something like them trying to text and drive.  The outcome could provide physical, emotional and/or legal challenges for those involved.

I also love what they’re doing with friendships on this show in Season 11, as well as having characters alternate having primary and secondary roles.  As easy as it is to love then get burned out on romantic relationship drama, the friendship aspects are solid as a rock.  I hope this continues in Season 12.

  2. I’m definitely on board for a suicide storyline involving bullying, considering this past year’s suicides due to bullying that took the media by storm; it would be extremely relevant.

    I think a great way for that car accident storyline to unfold would be for the all the characters to come together at some sort of party, and then for the car accident to occur post-party. It would be awesome if we had no idea who this could happen to because all the characters would be at the party.

    But in general, they just need to have more parties on Degrassi! It doesn’t have to be full-out Skins style, but they should acknowledge that high school parties are commonplace. When was the last time they had a party on Degrassi involving alcohol and such, Rock This Town? But I absolutely LOVE your idea for the texting and driving accident Kary, that would definitely be the right amount of educational and dramatic all in one.

  5. Male on male rape, the boy deals with questioning his sexuality and the shame of being raped. Or it could be a gay boy being raped, dealing with that fact that even though he’s gay it doesn’t mean he just want to have sex with every guy he meets and people’s judgements and thoughts when he takes the case to court. Both would need really strong actors or else they would be no good at all.

    Also any storyline that doesn’t last just one episode like Katie’s bulimia, it was pointless to make her 97% recovered bulimic and have the issue tied up at the end. Emma’s eating disorder lasted for an appropriate amount of time and she still dealt with the issues while in recovery. If Degrassi is going to “go there” and have it “get real” then have a storyline that doesn’t always have such a clean and neat ending.

    Like having her witnessing a new character facing physical abuse from their parents. Making her realize how awful she has been, also helping that character escape from her parent’s physical abuse by helping her move out and into her place.

  24. Top 3 Ideas for Degrassi Season 12:

    1. I’d like to see a Christian character make an appearance where he/she deals with all the high school drama, but makes decisions based on their faith and struggles with that. Clare doesn’t count as that. Her Christianity is barely touched on. Or maybe a character that is already on the show comes to the Christian faith. This kind of happened with Fitz but he has not been seen again since, which is kind of disappointing because they could have done a lot with his character since he had found God and such (even though it seemed random, sometimes that’s how it happens). So, I say bring back Fitz or a new Christian character.

    2. A reunion episode (two-parter) or movie would be amazing. I’d cry if they actually did that lol. I don’t know how they could write in all of them being at Degrassi again, but old characters showing up would definitely warm my heart. :) Just to maybe see what they all did with their lives lol. And see those who didn’t do anything haha.

    3. More storylines for characters we don’t see too much of or don’t know enough about (Connor, Wesley, Ms. Oh, Owen, Dave, Jake (without having something to do with freakin Clare), and Katie (without having something to do with freakin Drew)).

  28. For me I would like to see overprotective parents that don’t let their highschool child do anything such as go to extra cirricular events or out with his friends, so the highschooler tries to be something he is not and tries to fit in, but doesn’t and has so much anger from being controlled by overpertective parents.

    Or an actual storyline of a kid being made fun off for his weight such as being to fat and being teased. I see this all the time, some kids are not even really overweight but still get picked on.

    Or how about how a kids family is poor and the kid doesn’t always bring the nicest clothes mainly clothes from a thrift store.

    ALso another idea could be a loner type of person who just wants to fit in.

    I agree I would love to see an accident happen but would like to see it as someone dying so young and that affecting them emotionally. Not really a drunk storyline or their on drugs I felt that it has been done too much.

    Or how about someone losing their parents and the teenager dealing with the loss and moving in with another family member.

      I’d like to see a gay or lesbian character who’s main storyline isn’t them struggling with
      their sexuality. They handled Riley’s character horribly towards the end.
      A suicide really should be covered, but it would have to be a character fans actually like for it to be good. JT’s death was devastating because he was a longtime character but they handled it really well.
      And yes bullying would be great, the Rick storyline was interesting in that most of the students agreed with his bullying because what he did to Terri but I think it’d be interesting to see a gay kid, a loner, or just an outcast bullied.

  35. I have had an idea about Owen and Tristan that I always thought we be good.

    Now set aside the fact that Tristan may or may not be gay since that isn’t relevant to my plot.

    Have a two parter one from Tristians view and one from Owens, about how Tristan who once idolized his brother and thought he was the coolest, but once he sees what he is like at school starts to resent and dislike him. Tristan would have to rethink his idol worship and be crushed be the realization that his brother isn’t the cool guy he thought he was. Have him be friends with Adam so Tristan could hear the awful things Owen did to him. I also think a dynamic of Owen being the favorite would be interesting too. It would leave to a breaking point where Tristan exposes what kind of person Owen is to his family.

    Owen however could be just someone trying to impress his parents and classmates by putting on the tough guy act. Maybe show that he does care about his brother but doesn’t want to seem weak. After Tristan exposing his jerkish ways to his family, you could turn it into Owens wake up call and start his redemption to both his family and peers and be his true self.

    The volatile brother-brother aspect hasn’t really been explored in Degrassi and I think its something many people could relate too, as well as make for interesting non-relationship drama.

    I can’t send this to Stephan do to Twitters stupid character limit. But I’d love to see it.

A Bisexual storyline would be good its always gay or lesbian. Drunkdriving is also a very very good storyline. Shopping addiction.(shopaholic) or being addicted 2 porn or sex or participating in a porno. also a hardcore rascism plot or a muslim actually sticking 2 her religion but being very stressed and depressed over her family.add more realism.

  41. How about just treating each character like they’re important? I’m not saying that they should be a main character because there have been too many main characters in the past who’ve been underdeveloped or mishandled (Leia, Blue, Damian, and Zane, among quite a few others). But I would advise storylines that treat each character in a way that makes people care about them, instead of given them a token plot in one episode and then dropping them for the rest of the season, like they did with Connor and Riley last season.

    Truthfully, I’m not a huge fan of the apparent revolving-door policy they have going on with this show now, where characters are shuffled in and out after 2 or 3 years with little or no development. I think one of the reasons why fans are still clamoring for a reunion of the original cast is because they grew up with them and cared about them in ways that are becoming more difficult with the current season. Personally, I will always miss Craig and Sean.

Personally, I would like to see a main character deal with the death of a parent. I think Clare would be a good choice. We haven’t seen her have any interaction with her father since the divorce. The writers could build on that, and let Clare and her dad have a huge fight. They stop speaking, and he dies suddenly. This could be the catalyst to her having the breakdown we all know is coming. She freaks out and blames herself, sinking into a depression. The bonus with this storyline would be that there is one person who would know exactly how she’s feeling…Eli. He’s been in a similiar situation with Julia’s death, and could be the one to help Clare heal. Done correctly, this could be the perfect way to pave the way to an Eclare reunion.

Other things I would like to see be covered are male rape, now I know that one is highly unlikely and I doubt TeenNick would want to air but I’d really like to see them cover this topic because it does happen. I think that may be a good issue to cover through Tristan possibly. I would also like to see a drunk driving accident, I can’t believe they have yet to cover this on TNG! I think that could be a good storyline for either Owen or KC, I would say Fiona but I don’t think she drives herself anywhere haha. I also would like to see suicide be covered, as it would be such a relevant issue to cover given all of the teen suicides in the past two years. But, as you said it may be harder to cover now that the series is more entertainment driven, although I think they would be able to do it successfully if they handled it in a correct and careful way, and with the right character of course. I would also like to see less focus on romantic relationships and more focus on the issues at hand.

    Human trafficking is also another issue I’d like to see covered, I remember Linda Schuyler stating she wanted to do a story on it in an interview sometime last year, and I think it’d be a great topic to cover. That’s all I can think of at the moment, really.

    * A Muscular Male Over Excercising Due To Being A Fat Kid As A Boy.

    * For Any Sex Scene It Should Be At Degrassi’s Washroom! So People Can Now Say Everything Happens At Degrassi. ( At My School It Happens Like Every Week)

    * Female With Multiple Personality Disorder Shes A Nerd Who Doesnt Know Her Other Personality Is Totally The Oposite Of Her, Capable Of Anything, ( Met A Girl With MPD, And Its Real Stressing)

    *Male Who Only Cares About Getting In Bed With Girls, And He Knows Is True, A Breakup Messes Him Up ( Happens Everytime)

    * Male Influenced To Get His Looks From Celebrities

  52. FOR A ECLARE REUNION:::::

    i think the way for them to get back together is like one episode they both are in different rooms andd they ponder upon the way they use to like each other and realize that they honestly love each other. its like eli is sitting in his room realizeing that if he wasnt with clare he would be the same way he was before she came to his life . then clare should be like thinking bout all her relationships and noticing that the best one was with eli because he brought out he afventure and wild side that she enjoys and then they both come to a conclusion that they need each other but imogen comes in and tries to steals eli away but outta nowhere she and clare get into a fight and eli then knows that clare is there for him for anything and finds out that imogen is just a stalker.

  53. BRINGING BACK THE OLD CAST MEMBERS:::::

    i think the way you should bring the old cast back is by showing how they are now . like how emma and spinner’s marriage is going and what they have accomplished since the wedding. and then show if manny and jay are still together because idk bout you but their relationship was a real attention grabber like craig and ashley. but the couple i think we should up again is ali and johnny because they show that you can be in a relationship no matter the age. and show if jimmy ever got the surgery he need so he could walk again. show how craig is doing since he became famous. show the part how paige made it with alex and how her career is going . show marco and ellie as friends and their relationships again.

    I want Fiona to deal more with her sexuality. I have no problem with her being a lesbian but the way they went around this Its was to fast. Many lesbian woman also agreed with this issue. Fiona actually never dated a real nice guy. I know Adam is a guy but she was confused about him being a transgender in which is normal because Adam is missing some parts.

Raped by someome you know like a mutual friend or boyfriend needs to be covered. This has happened to a few of girlfriends in high school and the bad thing is they never told anybody because they did not want to get there boyfriend in trouble.

  67. I’d like for a character to contract HIV. Preferably a younger character who contracts it not from being promiscuous, sharing needles, or whatever, but sleeps with someone they care about (though not another main character, like an extended recurring role, or it could just be Dave though I would really prefer it to not be from a sleazy one night stand). We could see how they grapple with the news and come to terms with their own morality. Then later on we could see the challenges of trying to date while HIV+ and the precautions and stuff that you could take. It would be a great storyline because: 1) the writers just can’t gloss over it and tie it up in a pretty bow if it’s a MAIN character that contracts it (NO Griffins), 2) it’ll show viewers that you don’t have to be a ho, gay, or a druggie to contract it, and 3) you can date an HIV+ person.

    A serious car accident needs to happen too. I feel that a serious wreck would have been a better way for JT to go than that stupid Lakehurst rivalry stabbing. I don’t think a main character should die in it because there really isn’t one that is expendable AND that we would really care about, but someone should be seriously injured or some random side character could be killed in the other car and the driver could feel guilty about it.

    Love your blog :) I think us would be great to see a female character who ends up falling in live with her best friend and they end up going out and being girlfriends one character breaks up with her bf to be with her bestfried but they keep it a secret then when they tell there parents one of partners parents is fine but the other partners reject it completely. The choice of love or family values. Except Riley a lesbian/bi stirrings with a girl hasn’t been shown very realistically. Fiona mom dealt with her daughter very easily and Fiona was very lucky because usually parents finding out their daughter likes a girl doesn’t go over very well. We haven’t seen a good lesbian story line since Alex and Paige really even though I am enjoying Fiona and Charlies story line. I’m straight I just think they aren’t portraying a girl liking a girl very realistically like how a parent or two best frieda would handle it in the real world. Anyways! Much love to your blog!

Also, kidnapping, abuse, homelessness, poverty (all the kids at degrassi seem to have money, or always make it just fine.) hunger, etc. what about even having them volunteer and show these issues of poverty? I’m just brainstorming here.

  79. A lot of things people are saying have already been don, but can be brought back in interesting ways. They should have more parties and people getting carried away with drinking not for any background issue just because they thought it was fun. That could lead to a drunk driving scenario. I don’t think they’ve had any real cigarette smokers on the show. I would like to see a loner who is depressed and to see how they can’t exactly figure out what’s making them upset. That could tie into some good self harm story. I want Katie to have some time to develop on her own because they brought her in as a strong female character and then in two seconds she’s with Drew. I have some personal issues with certain characters (Clare, you are not forgiven!) and wouldn’t mind some time away from them in a nice kidnapping plot or whatever they need to do. That actually would probably give her more airtime, though and I’m tired of looking at her cankles and her awkward relationship with her step-brother. Maybe Alli (or Marisol although we’d need to get to know her first) would flirt with the wrong person and end up in a kidnapping situation. I would like to see a fat character because they had one and then she left and now it’s all skinny bitches. Like Katie fucking twig with her bulimia. I really want to see more of Bianca because she’s a great character like when she had to deal drugs for that guy I was feeling something.

Imogen should keep being crazy because I think it’s interesting and kinda hilarious. “Have you been stalking me?” “No I’m just a keen observer of human nature.” hahahaha. It’s kind of late for this but I always had an idea that Anya would get pregnant and then elope with Sav but then had a miscarriage. A guy who just wants to have sex and then some girl sets him straight. DEGRASSI WASHROOM SEX SCENE! I just read that someone else suggested that and that would be great and it does happen. Suicide would be good but who would do it? I would say Eli but he’s probably one of the main reasons some fans stick around. Also, all the freshman should just smoke weed. :)

  82. I think the show just needs to focus a little less on relationships and more on actual issues.. episodes like My Body is a Cage are always better-recieved than pure relationship episodes (an extreme example being the special aired a few weeks ago..)

    Anyways, some issues I would love to see:

    -Death. It would be really interesting to see a suicide, but I agree that it would be hard for the networks to do and I would really hate to see something so powerful handled badly or info leaked. I would really like to see any kind of death of a main character, something that affects the entire school, whether it be a car crash, drug overdose/alcohol poisoning, anything.

    -A car crash. I agree with Kary, this could be done so well.. drunk driving or texting while driving are what I’d really like to see.

    -Something that could lead up to both of these is PARTIES. There used to be so many parties back with the original TNG cast, and it was such an excellent excuse for characters who don’t normally interact to interact which is always interesting.. I would really love to see a character (maybe a new freshman?) be pressured into drinking or drugs when he or she really didn’t want to, but honestly degrassi just needs some parties. High school is full of parties, it’s completely unrealistic to not have any.

    – Serious battle with depression, go more in depth with Imogen’s problems (whatever happened to her dressing up as a homeless girl or binding her unwounded wrists?), a real racism storyline, eating disorder storyline (I know, I know, Katie.. I just really would like a more in depth one. Maybe binge eating disorder? That’s never covered in media.), or even a simple storyline about stress over school getting to be too much for a student. LIke parents pressuring into high SAT scores (or whatever they have in Canada haha)

    That’s it.. I just really want to see more characters interact who don’t right now. There used to be so many sleepovers and group hangouts and parties.. the lake house was a great start :)

  83. To me degrassi was def at its best around the time Rick came back and the school shooting happened… after that Emma, Jimmy, Paige, Spinner, Alex… everyone changed and emotions were INTENSE and deep!!! That is exactly what Degrassi is missing… something that will effect everyone… right now there is drama about a lot of superficial crap like boy problems… and not randomly have some one pop up with problems (Like Katie being bulimic b4 with no depth we didn’t even know her really yet).

    For example… If someone has a sex tape released that could ruin their reputation.. That person would be embarrassed, scared, tortured online, at school, and it could extremely depress a person… their parents, family, friend and everyone is looking at them differently…
    Don’t have an episode and then the next episode everyone has moved on no angst no nothing.. There has to be some depth I HATED how they did the Jenna pregnancy storyline… she was pregnant 4ever and then WOW she had the baby all of a sudden then I felt like she was giving the baby away as soon as i saw her again! Everything moves too fast and has no feeling and that is what we need no matter the story line.

    Teen marriage: As long as it’s not one of the pastries I don’t have a preference as to who. Wesley and Hannah maybe?

    Using drugs to stay awake to study: I can see this with Drew. His grades are slipping even more than usual and he really needs to pass a test or else he fails a course.

  88. I haven’t watched Degrassi since the first half of season 10 (which I LOVED but I just haven’t had a chance to catch up since then…)

    Anyway…I want to offer up a generic idea…

    They should have a male bisexual character. It could actually be one that’s already established on the show like Eli…#1, it would be believable, and I think the actor could pull it off. Bisexuality hasn’t been touched on seriously yet. They had Paige kinda go down that road, but I question the sincerity of it as it really seemed more like a decision for her to be bisexual rather than something real that she actually had to deal with on a daily basis; it was just convenient for her at the time. I think there’s a misconception out there that girls can just choose to be bisexual or something…

    So yea, a male bisexual character who is ACTUALLY bisexual and not just choosing to be. It could also help a lot of kids out there who are dealing with the same thing. Alternative sexualities are more widely accepted if you’re a girl than if you’re a boy. Don’t know why, but it’s true.

For a plot, I always thought Adam being a computer/video game addict would be interesting or Imogen being bi and going after Fi. I know “Fiomgen” is something alot of the fans want to see. It would be cool to bring back Holly J and Declan to visit Fiona before she graduates this year. And even though I love Clare, I think the spot light should be off her for awhile. For season 12,I think she shouldnt be in a relationship. I think that Clare needs to cut this crap with boys and focus on her writing, family, and future instead. Ok, well maybe flirt with Eli a little bit…. but no boys and no more desserts!!!!!

  108. I think they should really try the cutting storyline, but with a male. They should really consider it because people usually think that cutting is only for girls because theyre ‘more emotional’ or whatever. Darcy, Ellie, and they even used the Gracie side of Adam. I just think it would really open some people’s eyes a little. If i could choose a character, i’d go with KC. I think it would be necessary considering he just lost his son.
    Also, i think male bisexuality could work very well. There has never been one before, and i think it could really justify the ‘bisexual’ character. We got some BS with Paige; we dont even know if she was bisexual or pansexual. Anyways, it seems needed. For some reason, i want it to be Liam. A lot of people do believe it or not.
    Lastly, i think if anyone should be attempting suicide at all, it should be Connor. Here’s my theory: This poor kid has Asperger Syndrome. I’ve watched poor Connor over these few years and realized that no matter what he does, the Asperger’s is always going to hold him back. Maybe he’ll do something that would get him hated or bullied. After they push him over the edge, he tries to (or succeds) killing himself. The school would be changed forever…

    BUT those are just thoughts. If anyone would like to give me some criticism, go right ahead.

  110. I think they need to have more compelling episodes like they used to a few seasons ago, I feel like it is becoming generic and..predictable, you know what I mean? Im not saying its bad at all, Im a degrassi fan and probably always will be.

    Maybe some ideas like:

    – Think about the whole Riley situation, where he was struggling with his sexuality, where it took him SO long to come to terms and be proud about who he is, I love the idea of a Bisexual or another Gay male character. Maybe if it’s a bisexual guy, maybe he could be kind of like a player, moving from guy to girl over and over again OR one of the main male characters (who appears to be straight) but is also interested in guys as well. Or if it’s a Gay character, maybe he could be like Riley, where he believed he was straight until something happens or maybe a another guy could attempt to kiss him, and instead of fighting back (like people would expect him to) he submits to the guy. Tristian just doesnt seem like he is going to be that interesting to me, if I can be honest

    – Maybe some sort of suicidal attempt, but fails, initiating some sort of life change (Eli? Possibly?)

    Honestly, there are SO many different paths this show could go down to make it seem more interesting like it used to be. Basically back when Emma, manny, Jay, Liberty, etc were the main characters.

  111. I LOVE the Eli being bisexual thing, I think it would be very unexpected and a very interesting storyline.

    I know this is very off topic. But I am part of a degrassi roleplay yes with a few madeup characters. I feel in season 12 Eli Goldsworthy should have a younger sister named Beth Goldsworthy. She has been going to an expensive boarding school and for her freshman year she stops going.Cece and Bullfrog send her to Degrassi to finish her high school years. Beth is a bitter girl yet she is super understandable who pays no attention to drama, she does her own thing and she doesn’t take crap from anybody. Plus she is a strong fighter who used to be in boxing; Beth is cold and very stubborn but once that one guy comes in her life he will balance out her personality bringing out her sweet side. She makes a few friends with her many talents such as skateboarding, and school smarts, and a few basketball skills. Beth has a dark past of drug addiction in her 8th grade year, but is finally sober. Eli hopefully makes a small appearance by supporting his little sister in her freshman year kinda like Darcy did with Clare?
