Trivia:
The filming schedule for Degrassi took place between April to November (with a two-week summer break in the middle). The schedule was set up that way, so the actors would miss the least amount of school. Since the show was filmed during the summer, most of the characters wear summer clothing throughout the series. Even in episodes that took place in the middle of the school year, many of the characters are walking around in shorts.See more »
Goofs:
Errors in geography: Characters are shown speaking at the corner of Degrassi St. and Pape Ave (as indicated by the street sign). These streets run parallel and are about 10 blocks away from each other.See more »

Should be mandatory to watch this in public schools, 19 November 2013
Author: AsifZamir from Canada

My super amazing grade 6 teacher used to make the class watch Degrassi and I think other teachers should as well. Degrassi is a Canadian drama series of television shows that umbrellas four main Degrassi shows: The Kids of Degrassi Street (Fantastic 10/10), Degrassi Junior High (Perfect 10/10), Degrassi High (Amazing 10/10) as well as Degrassi: The Next Generation (I give this zero out of 10). These shows portray issues dealt with the age groups in the specific show at the time. The sequels are about a group of kids who live on and around Degrassi Street and issues they deal with in their early and teenage years.

Linda Schuyler created The Kids of Degrassi Street. It's origins came from Cookie Goes to the Hospital, Irene Moves In, Noel Buys a Suit and Ida Makes a Movie. These shows were on CBC for after-school specials from 1979 – 1982. Issues dealt with on The Kids of Degrassi Street were issues such as divorce and death. Cast includes Stacie Mistysyn, Neil Hope and Anais Granofsky, who later on went to both Degrassi Junior High as well as Degrassi High.

Degrassi Junior High (1987-1989) and Degrassi High (1989/1991) theme social everyday teenage issues, but the issues are not solved in a single episode, they stretch out over more than one episode. My teacher made us watch this show in class because each episode would teach you about life and how to deal with it (and not deal with it). This show deals with serious issues.

Up to this point the sequels had been produced and directed by Kit Hood and Linda Schuyler, however the current series Degassi: The Next Generation, aired in 2001 and is still in operation, is produced by Epitome Pictures and is on MuchMusic as well as VRAK.TV in French, and TeenNick. The 8th season was broadcast in the UK. Degrassi: The Next Generation addresses hard issues such as drug abuse, rape, drinking and even murder. I'll be honest, I don't like The Next Generation very much, I prefer the classics.
