Season 11 Confirmed: 44 Episodes + New Cast Announced

Stephen Stohn announced new season 11 details via Twitter this afternoon! We are expecting a press release sometime tomorrow with more information. In the meantime, Stephen tweeted the following:

Yes, Degrassi Season 11 is confirmed, there’ll be 44 episodes (one of which is an hour-long, so 45 half-hours in total)… Cristine Prosperi, Justin Kelly and Chloe Rose join the cast as Imogen Moreno, Jake Martin and Katie Matlin … And the summer will have daily Degrassis like last summer.. with one twist you’ll like, which I’ll let MuchMusic announce!

It’s no surprise that Degrassi will produce 44 episodes once again this season. I’m guessing that the hour-long episode is either the premiere or the finale, which will be aired in a movie-esque way (see TeenNick’s promotion of Season 7′s “Bust a Move” as the “Degrassi Spring Break Movie”). Daily Degrassi’s this summer was also to be expected, given Degrassi’s success in the summer of 2010. What is this “twist” Stephen speaks of? I’m guessing that Much Music will be announcing it soon!

As for the new cast, it looks like they haven’t announced who will be playing Mo/Dennis yet. However, a quick google search of the others revealed the following information:
Cristine Prosperi as Imogen Moreno: Not much can be found about Cristine at this point. Apparently she may have appeared in the film Stir of Echoes: The Homecoming in 2007? This is unconfirmed. On Degrassi, Cristine will play Imogen, a fun, energetic girl who goes to great lengths to stand out in the crowd.
Justin Kelly as Jake Martin: Justin is already known by many Degrassi fans who follow him on Twitter (@IsJustKelly). Born in 1992, Justin played Noah Jackson on The Latest Buzz and Brody Thompson in The Jensen Project. On Degrassi, Justin will play Jake, the new heartthrob and Clare’s rumoured love interest.
Chloe Rose as Katie Matlin: Chloe must be a new actress, because my google search has drawn a blank. On Degrassi she will be playing Katie, Marisol’s BFF and a talented soccer player.

Keep checking Degrassi-Fans.com for all the latest season 10 news. I am going to be away tomorrow night, but I will post updates as soon as I can. We should be getting a press release soon, so stay tuned for that!
