So it’s official: the Degrassi season 13 DVD is happening. “When will it be released?” has been the million-dollar question that’s eluded all of us for nearly a year now, and there’s still no clear-cut answer to it. Stephen Stohn tweeted an explanation as to why season 13 hasn’t been released yet:
Here’s the scoop on the Season 13 DVD: it’s confusing. We delivered all the elements a long long time ago, but then our distributor changed and there is misunderstanding whether the old or new distributor is responsible for the S13 DVD. They are working it out, please stand by!
If you’ll remember, Echo Bridge Entertainment was the distributor for seasons 7 through 12. Last year when DHX Media came in and purchased Epitome, they also took over the duties of creating and distributing the DVDs (I guess it’s safe to believe the creation of the DVD set was under way at Echo Bridge when the DHX deal went through last year). So someone has all of the stuff to produce the DVDs, they just need to hurry up and figure out who’s doing it.
