Much Music Season 12 Press Release

Degrassi’s season 12 premiere is still a little over a month away, but promotion for the summer season is already underway! Much Music’s press release came out today, and it contained some interesting spoilers for the first episode. In addition to the scheduling information we already knew (Degrassi will premiere July 16th at 10pm, with encore episodes on the weekend), the press release includes a brief summary of the premiere:

In the premiere episode, Drew (Luke Bilyk) is ready to break-up with Katie (Chloe Rose) for Bianca (Alicia Josipovic) but dreads the drama and looks to some liquid courage to get the job done. Clare (Aislinn Paul) wants to be with Eli (Munro Chambers) but worries that he doesn’t feel the same way. Plus, complicating life for the crew is the arrival of a dozen hotties, as Degrassi welcomes players from a junior hockey team to the school.

How do you think this episode is going to stack up against previous Degrassi season premieres?


Degrassi Season Finale Episode Summaries

There are only 3 episodes left from season 11, and the exciting 2-part finale is fast approaching! Not much is known about the last 2 episodes (“In a Cold Cold Night Part 1 & 2″) at this point. However these episode summaries seem to reveal that we could be looking at an anti-gay bullying storyline of some sort, and more Eclare drama. Thanks to Kyle at CableTVTalk for this information!

1144 – In the Cold of the Night, Part 1
When anti-gay slurs appear on several lockers, Simpson can’t find the culprit, so the students take matters into their own hands. A conflict between Alli and Eli puts Clare in a difficult position. Fiona embarks on her first-ever job search.

1145 – In the Cold of the Night, Part 2
Simpson institutes a peer mediation program to help resolve recent conflicts, but it gets off to a rough start. Clare is so overwhelmed by relationship, school, and family stress that she develops insomnia. Clare without sleep? This could get messy.

Much Music Releases “Nowhere to Run” Details

Degrassi’s fall special Nowhere to Run is set to premiere on Much Music next week (October 24th at 9pm)! Earlier this week, Much Music’s official blog included a few new details about the episode.

Nowhere to Run is a two-part episode which features a cottage, a love triangle, “and there is a betrayal that you never saw coming.” The episode takes place over the summer break. The episode summary says: “Getting away to Jake’s remote cabin for an end of summer bash sounds fantastic but when strange things start happening, paranoia and suspicions surface and the gang has anything but a good time.

Following the two episodes of Degrassi, Much Music will be airing a half hour behind the scenes special! Titled My Time At Degrassi, the special features Much Music host Lauren Toyota as she visits the iconic Degrassi set. Click here to watch some sneak peeks!

MuchMusic.com is saying that the two episodes and the half hour special will be live streamed on their website. However, it is unclear whether this will be geoblocked for those outside of Canada. With a live stream, it’s hard to say. TeenNick has yet to announce its airdate for the episodes yet, so it will likely premiere on Much Music first.
