Yesterday, random tweets by random Degrassians shopping turned out to contain info we’ve been waiting for:
Upon closer examination, Much’s premiere date for season 13 is etched onto the store’s front window:

All of this comes after reports in mid spring that made it pretty clear Degrassi was not going to do the telenovela for the summer block this year. Degrassi’s summer block was initially slated to air episodes on Fridays, but last week press information from MuchMusic confirmed it’d been changed to Thursdays. Below is what the summer schedule should look 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)
There’s still a couple of things to remember…
1) If the premiere date is on the front window of a store it’s most definitely confirmed, but it’s really weird that Much hasn’t made a public announcement of their own yet.
2) There’s still no word on whether or not TeenNick will also air Degrassi on Thursdays. The more I think about it, the more I can’t think of why they’d want to disrupt their Friday night lineup of Degrassi and TeenNick Top 10 if there’s going to be no telenovela.
