Degrassi Special Premiering on Much Music This Fall

Much Music posted their fall press release yesterday. While it doesn’t contain information about new Degrassi episodes this fall, it does mention a Degrassi special scheduled to air in October.

This likely means that Degrassi wont return again until 2012. Filming is currently on hiatus until October, and Much Music would’ve definitely announced new episodes in this press release if that was the case.

The Degrassi special is briefly mentioned towards the end of the press release:

DEGRASSI **All-New Special**Premieres October (TBA)
School may not be out in October, but the kids of DEGRASSI are in for a treat… or a trick with this one-hour gripping special.

Based on this description (“a treat… or a trick,” a “gripping” special), I would guess that this is another Degrassi Halloween special. No specific airdate has been announced yet, and there is no word on whether or not TeenNick will air it as well. Although, I think we can all assume that they will. I’ll keep you posted!
