Drake’s Alma Mater ‘Degrassi’ returns in HBO Max Revival

Degrassi goes there again in a whole new series.

The Canadian teen drama that propelled a 15-year-old forward Aubrey Grahms (A.KA. Drake) the entertainment career will hit the airwaves again. Degrassi is said to return to HBO Max in 2023. Warner Kids & Media now holds U.S. rights to the show along with the 14 seasons of Degrassi: The next generation.

WildBrain Media Company owns the rights to the entire franchise and will produce the show. Eric Ellenbogen, a CEO of the company, stated:

“WildBrain artfully continues to capture high school life in a compelling format that can be experienced seamlessly on HBO Max,”

He continued:

“I’m glad our first ever HBO Max commission is here Degrassi, a truly venerable franchise with a very affectionate and passionate audience, ”

He added:

“This is yet another evergreen property from our large IP library that we are reviving with a fresh vision and creative-first approach.”

Very much like previous rates, the coming ones Degrassi will follow a new crop of children as they navigate the halls of Degrassi Community School in an hour.

The original Degrassi debuted as The Kids of Degrassi Street in 1980. Seven years later, Degrassi Junior High and Degrassi High took the road to the United States and was broadcast on the PBS network.

In 2001, the franchise was revived under the title Degrassi: The next generation. It was broadcast on Canada’s CTV and The N (Noggins teen block) in the United States. The series dominated assessments and covered topics such as teenage pregnancy, sexual assault, mental illness, sexual orientation, domestic violence and school shootings.

One of the most notable episodes was “Accidents Will Happen,” a two-part show about an eighth-grade student who became pregnant and later aborted her unborn child. The episode was so controversial that it was not aired in the United States.

Drake got his first major breakthrough as a member of the original Next generation cast. He starred as Jimmy Brooks, a skilled basketball player who would fall victim to a school shooting that infamously left him paralyzed and wheelchair bound. Drake played the character until 2008, just as his music career began to take off.

It is unclear whether any of the cast will repeat their role.
