As we all know, Degrassi’s summer block consists of 8 episodes spanning 7 weeks (the finale will be on August 22nd). That means Degrassi will have a whopping 32 episodes they’re going to need to divvy up between September 2013 and July 2014. With the bad news of not having a telenovela comes the good news of having shorter hiatuses throughout the year. Stephen Stohn tweeted information about that today:
The instant assumption is that block B will happen this fall, then blocks C and D (and maybe E) will happen next Winter/Spring/Early Summer. My hope is that those 2014 episodes are scheduled in a way that puts them closer toward the summer. I really don’t mind having a long hiatus over the winter (December-February), and would much rather see them use the end of season 13 to lead right into season 14 (like they did with TTOML this year, but bridge the gap that existed between that ep and Zombie).
Let’s also hope that with the show switching back to its original weekly format that 40 episodes remains the standard, because the moment they decide to do something drastic like slice that episode count in half, those hiatuses will become absolutely brutal.
