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?
