This info has worked its way into the fandom way earlier than anticipated, so here goes:
There’s been a lot of anticipation/confusion in recent weeks given the news of Degrassi premiering a summer block on a day that isn’t a Monday, as well as the heavy speculation that there will be no telenovela this summer. Given the updated news today, I’m not sure how much more blunt the networks can be without actually saying “Sorry kids, no telenovela this year.”
The latest teaser:
MuchMusic’s #1 hit show kicks off it’s season premiere with back-to-back episodes Thursday July 11 9p + 9:30p ET.
Degrassi has been a groundbreaking series addressing the issues and circumstances of young people’s lives with honesty and frankness. With its first ever Emmy nomination, Degrassi’s game-changing television continues to bring to light the issues that affect teens today.
High school is all about preparing for the future, but nobody knows for sure what the future holds. This season at Degrassi, people are changing. Relationships are changing. Futures are changing. Just when you think you know someone, you realize — you don’t.
As of now, it looks like Degrassi (the #1 Canadian show on MuchMusic and MuchMusic.com, as well as TeenNick’s #1 show overall) will shift to Thursday nights at 9pm for the summer block.
With that schedule it means the summer block would consist of eight 30-minute episodes. Here’s what that summer schedule looks like:
Friday 6/21, 9pm – The Time of My Life (1-hour special)
Thursday 7/11, 9pm – Summertime (1-hour premiere)
Thursday 7/18, 9pm – Ep 1303
Thursday 7/25, 9pm – Ep 1304
Thursday 8/1, 9pm – Ep 1305
Thursday 8/8, 9pm – Ep 1306
Thursday 8/15, 9pm – Ep 1307
Thursday 8/22, 9pm – Ep 1308 (summer block finale)
This info all comes from Much, so it’s still unclear if TeenNick will follow suit (Remember, TeenNick spent the spring branding a Friday lineup of Degrassi at 9pm, and TeenNick Top 10 at 10pm).
NOTE: Epitome says they can’t discuss season 13 details until the networks make an official announcement (so harassing the Stohn about this info will do you no good). Public confirmation of the season 13 info by the networks is set to happen right after TTOML airs in June:
