Degrassi: Next Class
The original idea for "Degrassi: Next Class" was to be the 15th season of The Next Generation, but under a new title. After learning of the series cancellation in November 2014, the producers pitched the idea of Next Class to Nickelodeon, who later passed on the idea. The producers then sought out other means to distribute the series and later made a deal with Netflix.

Degrassi: The Next Generation
"Degrassi: The Next Generation" takes place 14 years after the cult hit show "Degrassi Junior High" as students continue to deal with the obstacles of being a teenager. From issues like relationship problems, homosexuality and bullying to more darker issues like rape, school shooting and death.
The young denizens of Degrassi Street in Toronto, Canada, have graduated from two television series, The Kids of Degrassi Street and Degrassi Junior High. Degrassi High confronts life as teenage high school students during the heady, late 1980s. This sometimes-controversial series confronts serious issues (adolescent pregnancy, AIDS, suicide) in a head-on way.
Degrassi Junior High
Hailed as "groundbreaking," "powerful," and "totally authentic," Degrassi Junior High confronts it all - friendship, puberty, rumours, sports, studies, and more - with a refreshing ensemble cast and a unique teen's-eye-view of life. Sometimes moving, sometimes shocking, but always believable, Degrassi Junior High is a classic for teens of all ages.
The Kids of Degrassi Street
How many times have you asked your friends: "Have you ever seen Kids of Degrassi Street?" Most likely they didn't know what it was. During the first few months of the series it did not do good in the ratings, but got better. This show starred many characters, they all went to the same school, right next to the Degrassi Grocery. Everyone knew everyone in the little town, this show dealt with many issues in teen and pre-teen life. After the show was done airing, most of the actors went on to the other series Degrassi Junior High / Degrassi High, they just had different names. There were many rumors as the show went on; some like the cast had to re-audition for Degrassi Junior High. Those were never confirmed. The Kids of Degrassi Street was filmed 1979-1985 around Degrassi Street and Queen Street East in Toronto, Canada. The show has sadly been cancelled, there is a new series. If you like this show you should watch Degrassi: The Next Generation.
