As we all know, Degrassi is returning for an 8-week block this fall beginning on October 3rd.  For Canadian fans, you’ll be watching Degrassi on its new home.

While the show will remain on TeenNick in the U.S., Degrassi has officially moved to MTV Canada.

The move is just a small part of what looks like a bunch of changes for Much.  The network has brought in a bunch of comedy shows, while its dramas (Degrassi, Pretty Little Liars, Teen Wolf, etc) have been distributed between MTV Canada and the rebranded network M3 (formerly known as MuchMore).

The good news is that the American and Canadian viewings will be back in sync once again, as Degrassi will return to its 9pm timeslot, with.  Here’s a look at MTV’s broadcast lineup for October:

With that said, MTV has wasted no time in giving Canadian fans a reason to be excited as they’ve teamed up with RBC for a contest in which you can win a visit to the set of Degrassi:

    1. Ctv, much and mtv are all owned by bell media here.

      So the news is finally out. I wonder how many tv shows still in production have survived two channel changes? Could this be another record?

  5. MTV tends to cater towards an older, hipster-type crowd than Much does. I wonder if the tone of the show will change to attract more of that demographic. I certainly wouldn’t mind.

  6. Interesting that MTV decided to have a bank as a business partner in this promotion, I can understand the banks point of view, but not MTV’s. Guess it never hurts to have a bank in your pocket for any venture…

  7. Hearing that Degrassi’s second network jump in Canada is cause Much is re-branding and other shows are bing shuffled is slightly more promising however with all the changes good and bad it makes me wonder if this is going to be the shows final season and/or they are going to drag it out into two years cause assuming after this 8 week block it’s not back until early 2014 that’s 24 episodes left to air which I assume will be packed into 3 more 8 episode blocks…

    1. I don’t think you can read anything into the move like pending cancellation or something similar to that. What I find curious is that it sounds as if the shows Much is dumping all its dramas to MTV and the new network. As far as I can see, the only show that has had it’s new home announced officially has been DeGrassi. That could be because it’s scheduled to return soon or else it’s because MTV is actually pleased to get it. The other two mentioned Pretty Little Liars and Teen Wolf won’t be back again till spring. From the outside looking in, this seems to be a great move and fit for DeGrassi.
