Degrassi: Next Class is going to make it to senior year. A day after Netflix picked up the teen drama for a second season, EW can announce exclusively that the streaming service has renewed the series for two additional seasons.
As the latest iteration of the long-running Degrassi franchise, the renewal means Degrassi: Next Class will have at least four seasons, and the franchise overall will be up to 18 seasons. Degrassi: Next Class is the franchise’s first foray into streaming.
“It is wonderful for our stories to be reaching our core teen audience where they live around the world — on Netflix,” Degrassi: Next Class showrunner Linda Schuyler told EW. “And now it’s even more wonderful to be ordered for yet another two seasons of drama, joy and angst!”
Both seasons 3 and 4 will include 10 episodes, which is the same amount as the show’s first and second seasons.
Check out EW’s interview with the stars of Degrassi: Next Class to find out how their Netflix version of Degrassi differs from past series. The second season of Degrassi: Next Class will premiere on July 22 on Netflix.
