The most frustrating part of this Degrassi hiatus for fans has been the lack of information about anything.
Degrassi 14B? Coming “soon.” Now it’s “coming this Spring.”
Season 15? No word from the networks, so everyone assumes the show is canceled. I’m not ready to jump on that bandwagon, but last year I remember thinking once DHX Media came on board that the Degrassi routine everyone’s been used to for the last four years would change in 2015, and it already has.
In the meantime, Degrassi cast members keep zipping back and forth between Toronto and L.A. This spring DHX has been using Epitome’s set to film the Nickelodeon show “Make It Pop,” and it was just announced they’ll be filming season 2 there as well (20 episodes). For those hardcore Degrassi followers out there you should probably keep an eye on what’s happening with that show as well as DHX in general.
On Sunday, Stephen Stohn jumped on Twitter for a brief, cryptic tweeting spree:
I haven’t really been on The Twitter for the past couple of months: it’s been roller-coaster-ish crazy times!!!! But in the end it’s gonna be awesome, there are some cool announcements in the next couple of weeks :) Not sure whether everything will be announced at once, or maybe there will be several announcements at different times….But stay tuned, you’re gonna like it :)
We should see a new Degrassi promo within the next week or so if the rumored May 26th date hasn’t been changed again. “Degrassi TV” debuts tonight at 9pm EST on Degrasi’s Youtube channel. I do know about at least one of the announcements coming (nothing to do with 14B or s15), but like the Stohn I don’t know when they’re planning on officially announcing it.
