45 half-hour episodes begin airing on TeenNick this summer

School’s still in session for the kids at Degrassi, who’ll be getting three new classmates to add to their angst when an astonishing 11th season of the adolescent drama hits TeenNick this summer. Joining series regulars like Luke Bilyk and Alicia Josipovic will be Cristine Prosperi as attention-hungry Imogen Moreno, Justin Kelly as heartthrob Jake Martin, and Chloe Rose as soccer star Katie Matlin. EW has learned exclusively that production began on the 45 new half-hour episodes. They’ll run in the same telenovela format — with installments every Monday through Thursday — that averaged nearly one million viewers last summer, boosting the network to its best quarter in total viewers, up 27 percent.
