  1. So Maya continues her whole downfall that started at the end of Season 12, and Clare is probably trying to keep it together through an LDR and potential Leukimia.

    and Chewy = Asian S9 Dave.

  2. These character-based promos are a little underwhelming. At least the S9 “GETS REAL” ones made me LOL.

    Are we 100% not getting a music video this season? I live for those!

    1. I agree with you. They are terrible, especially Maya’s promo. After the pain she went through in “Zombie” I’m surprised she’s still trying to act like a “badass”. Let’s hope there’s some sort of character development that comes out of this.

      1. Yep, I totally agree. These weren’t very impressive, but I guess it could always be worse. The one with Maya kind of surprised me, I guess I just thought that the writers would take her character in a different direction for the opening block of Season 13.

  5. I predict that Winson will have a large fan base. He’s got the looks, the Asian nerdy style and attitude (which may seem to be a stereotype but I do know some Asians like him), and the Korean-ness going on for him (since some people might associate him with K-Pop culture lol).

    Miles, though, seems like a Declan 2.0 with how his backstory as of now seems to be based on his affluence. He’s slightly different from Declan since Miles seems to have more connections to celebrities (since in one of the Season 13 promos, he is on the backstage of a concert).

I wonder if they will show dave. Does anyone realize how they never mentioned how jacinta was doing after getting hit by that car or by updating us if clare is suing asher. Just saying.

      1. In Tristan’s character bio on TeenNick it said Tori moved. Plus The funeral has, Eli, Jonnor, Becky, Bianca, Tristan, Maya, Alli, Drew, Dallas and Mr & Mrs Torres. The only people who were not there was Adam, Imogen & Clare. So I doubt it would be Imogen’s dad. I also doubt that this is a dream. I don’t think they would spend this type of money to go on location for a dream. I know many fans think it maybe Clare but I doubt that too there was no sight of her parents or Jake.

    3. I highly doubt they will kill off a main-main character like Clare. That’s too soon for a death of a main character (i.e. Cam) It has too someone close to all of them…someone that we barely know or have any connection with

  9. LOOK GUYS! What all of you are saying has been herd a billion times. Okay 1st, yes many people arent liking the new characters but in 2 years we always end up loving them. 2nd, yall are having problems with where these characters are going, for example Maya, okay just because she was a mess freshman year doesn’t mean her sophomore year is going to be perfect. She like any other teen in high school who does mistake after mistake. Give it some time for her to grow! Holly J was the meanest bitch ever it wasnt untill her senior year she was a 100% saint. And last and not least, yes they are going for an Instagram look because thats what majority of teens use! They try to be updated with the real world. Unlike any other show, they do what actually goes on in our lifes. SO STOP COMPLAINING!!

    1. In all fairness, I wasn’t complaining about the new characters themselves. I look forward to seeing them and what they’ll bring to the show, but I just thought that Degrassi’s promos for them were underwhelming.
      The only thing I was getting at with Maya was that I just figured that the writers would be taking her character down a different path considering the momentous events/tragedies she went through in Season 12, especially at its end. Keeping in mind that she was at an emotional collapse at the end of the season/school year, I kind of assumed they would portray her either coming full circle on Cam’s suicide and accepting it or still grieving since the summer block will be during summer vacation from school in the Degrassi universe.

      I am actually looking forward to Drew and Clare’s storylines this upcoming season the most to be honest. I understand what you are talking about though.

      You have alot of good points, but the way that you’re choosing to express them and the tone of your writing really brings them down.

  10. Dear God, please let Drew & Clare get together at some point this season. Eli will be away in NYU, & Eclare is way too fantasy fan fiction for me now. & I’m sure there’s at least one person that agrees with me! It’s nauseating for me to watch eclare now. & that’s mainly because of the obnoxious fan base that hates clare if she’s not with Eli or anyone who dates clare for that matter. I really & truly never really found Eclare to be all that appealing. Semma had way more build up & for that reason, I would say they were the ultimate ship. But it’s so obvious that Eclare is trying to be the new semma but they never will be, because Eli has been on the show for only 3 freaking seasons. Not enough build up in my opinion…..

    1. ^I agree. Eclare does have an obnoxious fan base. But I do see Drew & Clare getting together, perhaps permanently. Hear me out. Eli is leaving for NYU. I highly doubt Eclare will last without a mainstream relationship. & everyone knows that! But they’re probably in denial because they’re so stuck on eclare that it’s just too much for their little eclare hearts to bare. I also think Drianca will be I story by the next time they get an A plot. I’m not sure what it will be, but something will happen between them & it won’t work out. Not that many people ship them anymore anyways & the writers might decide to do something different with Drew. I’m telling you, drew & clare could happen. It likely will between a whole season. The only way I could see it not happening is if Clare’s cancer storyline causes the writers to ignore her being VP. Which would piss me off if that happened because that would mean yet ANOTHER plot wasted JUST for eclare.

We may never even get the opportunity to date anyone else that’s not Eli because the eclare fan base will threaten to kill themselves & not watch. Eclare has become VERY predictable. They break up every season & get back together during the finale. It’ll happen again on the season 13 finale. I guarantee you.

      3. How many more people do you need to see Clare dating? She’s already had romantic affiliations with more characters than any other female character in the current cast…

        I think Eclare is endgame and it should stay that way, not because I’m an Eclare fan but because logical writing dictates that it makes zero sense for them to end up breaking up in the brief summer block that Eli will even be present. I also highly doubt Bianca and Drew will break up, but that’s probably a tiny bit more likely.

        Lately a lot of the Degrassi fandom has been making speculations or proposals that really make no sense in the realm of fiction-writing, but I guess there is a reason why the Degrassi writers get paid for what they do.

    3. I’d rather see Clare single. Seriously, the number of guys who have been interested in her is unrealistic (I’m mostly talking about personality, for the record). Plus, she’s never been single for an entire season. It’s clear that they’re pandering to the EClare fanbase, though (seriously, their upcoming storyline sounds like a bad fanfiction), so they probably won’t break them up. Then again, nobody predicted Spemma, LOL.

  11. As much fun as s9 Dave was, he did have a tendency to be a little cocky and obnoxious sometimes (but was still likeable nonetheless). Winston seems like he’ll be a little more self-aware and self-deprecating than Dave, which sounds awesome.

      1. My main problem with eclare is that the writers fail to realize that not everyone one who watches degrassi ships eclare….everything that happens is in favor of eclare. Hell, they even turned cam’s death into a plot for eclare which inevitably led to them having sex. They could’ve just not broken up but of course the writers broke them up. Why? Because it created more hype for Eli & Clare’s prom night & their first time. That finale was SO unrealistic. A carriage, prom king & queen, AND a hotel room…? No other couples on the show had that!!! Not even Emma. You cannot sit here & tell me that the writers don’t favor eclare. & for that reason, you may be right. Eclare may possibly be endgame, but not before they hog up some more screen time from other characters & have more pointless & break ups to keep eclare fans waiting for when they obviously get back together AGAIN. I’m done.

      2. What baffles me Munro is going to be 23 pretty soon.. If he keeps staying on this show he might get typecast or may have a harder time getting his foot in that door. By the time Aislinn leaves Munro will be 25. I think your right I bet Eli & Clare maybe done. I have this bad feeling Clare is not going to tell Eli about her cancer until later because she doesn’t want him to drop out of university. Eli will find out during the funeral that she lied to him about something this important.. Clare is always walking on eggshells with Eli when some really bad happens. but This is a just theory. All in all I have a feeling I know who is going to die and Im not happy about it but I hope its going to be a story that needs to be shown. Like drunk driving, gay bashing and so on.

  13. These promos kind of suck :| They really feel season 8-9ish. Is Degrassi on a reduced budget now? It kind of looks that way. Either some cast members didn’t want to return or they’re really trimming the fat. Dave is not present in any promo. Luke is a goner. Who else have we lost here…

    There’s potential in many storylines and I still trust the Degrassi writers after the amazing season 12 that they gave us. I’m just hoping that those promos are Teenick’s fault and have nothing to do with Epitome.

    1. If we take the pictures taken for season 13 seriously and according to the Degrassi Wiki, the cast as now been reduced to 16 students. How long has it been since the cast has been this small? I’m quite interested…

      1. I thought the photos only represent the prominent characters of the 8 “Summertime” episodes.

        However… I wouldn’t have a problem if they downsized the cast. It might give room for better individual development. Seasons 1-6 didn’t have that large a cast and while screentime wasn’t distributed evenly it worked alot better than having some characters with potential underdeveloped.

        I’m pretty interested in this too!

  14. Winston looks like he might be the latest male nerdy character. Therefore, I wouldn’t count on him getting tons of screentime, going by this show’s history. Clare and Maya are the only nerdy characters the writers care about and that’s only because they’re the new Emma types.

    Related to the above, is Maya STILL acting out because of Cam? I know I’m beating a long dead horse, but where the hell were these writers back in Seasons 6 and 7?

  15. As much as I love Clare she will be a basket case. Eli is not here and I know she doesn’t want him to drop out of NYU to take care of her if she does have some kind of blood cancer. So is going to keep it a secret from him?? Something tells me she might. So she is going to emotionally all over the map. Luckily she has her family and friends for support.
    Something tells me that Eli will be hurt and angry when he finds out. The thing I have noticed about Clare since the beginning of Eclare. She walks on eggshells when things get tough. During S11 Now and Never, the sexual harassment and Cam’s death. This type communication problem can tear up relationship.

  16. Well one vid shows Clare on the phone asking someone to come home. I’m almost certain it’ll be Eli. Which to me means either she didn’t find out what the lump was for the entire summer (idiot) and just found out during the school year and wants him to come back OR she found out during the summer, told him to still go to NYU, and is now freaking out so much she needs him back. I REALLY doubt Eli would still go if he knew Clare was very sick. Should be interest to see how Eli copes.

    So Miles is a bad boy? And he likes a good girl? OK so I see him stealing Becky away from Adam. I have no idea why Adam says Becky doesn’t trust him; I’m assuming it would be very difficult for him to cheat as a trans guy.

    Imogen is gonna date a guy. Or try to. She says he has a gf so I don’t think it’ll be Miles. Maybe Winston? IDK because everyone says they think Winston and Tristan will be together and I kind of agree but Imogen was originally very weird and Winston is pretty awkward in his promo. I don’t get the feeling he’d have a gf tho if he is awkward so Imogen wouldn’t have to steal him…

    I completely forgot about the funeral! Yeah I’d like to say it’s probably Clare but wouldn’t it be kinda early to be filming that already? I also thought maybe Imogen’s dad but idk why that would be a big thing on the show… so I doubt it. I’m gonna be so upset if they kill Clare- poor Eli already had to find Cam dead he really doesn’t need this.
