A new Degrassi series is coming to HBO Max! Via Variety: “HBO Max has greenlit “Degrassi,” a new series adding to the teen drama franchise of the same name. Additionally, HBO Max secured the U.S. rights for all 14 seasons of “Degrassi: The Next Generation,” which will become available on the streamer in spring 2022. Over 10 episodes, “Degrassi” will chart the painful high school experience of self-discovery by following a group of Toronto students and faculty coping with events that both bring them together and tear them apart. “Degrassi” is set to debut in 2023 and will be produced by franchise owner WildBrain and developed by showrunners and executive producers Lara Azzopardi and Julia Cohen. The series will shoot in Toronto in summer 2022.”
