Class is back in session!
A slew of original cast members from Degrassi: The Next Generation are returning to celebrate the franchise’s 500th episode with what is sure to be an epic class reunion!
So who exactly is returning to the hallowed halls of Degrassi High? According to the official Degrassi Facebook page, fans can expect to see original Next Generation characters including Marco (Adamo Ruggiero), Paige (Lauren Collins), Emma (Miriam McDonald), Spinner (Shane Kippel), and Craig Manning (Jake Epstein).
Netflix notably revived the long-running Canadian teen drama after TeenNick canceled the series back in 2015. While the show’s second season on the streaming site will begin with a class reunion, it doesn’t appear as though The Next Generation’s most famous alum, wheelchair-bound Jimmy Brooks aka Drake, will be joining in on the fun.
Back in May, Adamo Ruggiero told Entertainment Weekly that “the wheelchair ramp was out of service,” hinting that Drake would not be involved in the reunion.
Catch up with your favorite Degrassi stars as they promote the forthcoming reunion episode in this promotional video courtesy of the Degrassi Facebook page.
You can catch the original Degrassi: The Next Generation cast reunion beginning Friday, July 22 on Netflix.
