While Degrassi is preparing to film seasons 3 and 4 of Next Class, Entertainment Weekly addressed more pressing issues by posting a couple of promo pics from episode 5 of Season 2:
The article quietly confirms the spoilers that have been rumbling over the past several months about this episode:
*Guest appearances from Adamo Ruggiero (Marco), Lauren Collins (Paige), Miriam McDonald (Emma), Sarah Barrable-Tishauer (Liberty) and Shane Kippel (Spinner). Jake Epstein (Craig) also reportedly appears, and Charlotte Arnold (Holly J) is also spotted in the group shot below.
*The main plot of the episode deals with #BlackLivesMatter, so it’s safe to assume that’s also the episode title.
This episode, which will be released on Netflix on July 22 (projected airdate for Family Channel would be Tuesday, August 16th), will be the 500th episode in a franchise that’s been around for over 35 years.
