Drake reunites with his Degrassi co-stars in Toronto

Posted on

Degrassi mini reunion alert: Drake reunited with his Degrassi co-stars Daniel Clark, Adamo Ruggiero, and Lauren Collins on Wednesday night at a screening of We Are Disorderly in Toronto. 

Though it’s been a few years since they’ve walked the halls of Degrassi Community School, Drake and his fellow alums certainly made their mark on the Canadian teen drama. Former cast members still cite the episode in which Drake’s character, Jimmy Brooks, was shot by Rick Murray (Ephraim Ellis) and left paralyzed, as one of the most memorable and devastating of the entire series. But there were happier times for Jimmy too — like when he showed off his rap skills at school and the crowd loved it. 

Will there be more reunions as the long-running series prepares to head to Netflix in 2016? We can only hope. 

TeenNick ended its Degrassi run this summer, but new episodes will be airing on Netflix next year with many of the most recent cast returning to reprise their roles. For more details on that move, head here
