It’s about damn time!
Nearly 9 months after the initial release of Degrassi: Next Class Season 2, the entire season is finally available for streaming on Netflix in Canada. I get that Family Channel (pushing the broadcast and the Family app) is the priority these days for Degrassi in Canada, but it does seem awfully excessive for it to take nearly a year for the series to appear on Netflix in the show’s own country of origin. At this point it’s anyone’s guess as to when Season 3 will appear on Netflix Canada.
Below are my written reviews of Degrassi: Next Class Season 2 for you to check out if you haven’t already.
