Previously known as Degrassi: The Next Generation, the suffix "the Next Generation" was dropped this season, due to the original next generation of students having all been written out.
With the start of the tenth season, the series has survived longer than the nine-year gap between Degrassi High's telemovie School's Out, and Degrassi’s premiere episode "Mother and Child Reunion".
First and foremost, congratulations to Degrassi for the Emmy nomination for Outstanding Children’s Program!
