Much Music Fall Season Press Release!

Much Music released their press release today for the fall season. While the press release did contain some info we already knew about (e.g. Chaz Bono will be making an appearance), it also include some new spoilers as well.

We now know that Canadian rock band Hedley will be making a guest appearance AND Degrassi will be moving back to it’s 9 p.m. ET timeslot (instead of 10 p.m. in the summer).

Chaz Bono and Canada’s rock royalty Hedley are among the exciting guest appearances on DEGRASSI, when the iconic series returns Friday, Oct. 12 at 9 p.m. ET, exclusively on Much. The second half of Season 12 is jam-packed with dramatic storylines and challenging topics, tackling issues such as bullying, depression, and gender identity struggles. Full episodes of DEGRASSI are available on muchmusic.com, following the broadcast premiere.

When fans last saw the students of DEGRASSI, Eli’s school play, Romeo and Jules, had a successful opening night, and Clare made a decision to get even with Asher by going to the police. When DEGRASSI kicks off the second half of this season with “Building a Mystery” (Part 1), Becky begins to fall for Adam and worries about how her conservative parents will react. Meanwhile, Bianca urges Drew to reconnect with his mom. At a loss for film ideas, Eli is desperate for creative inspiration.

The mid-season finale of Season 12 in August was the #1 specialty program in its timeslot in its key demographic of viewers 12-17, as well as the #1 non-sports specialty program, with viewers 12-34.
