Fans can bring a lawn chair, a blanket and their BFFs for a night under the stars where they can meet the cast and hang with Much hosts as they broadcast live leading up to the premiere. Then, all DEGRASSI devotees can stay to watch the highly-anticipated one-hour season premiere, featuring a special appearance by actor/singer Keke Palmer.
Catch all the fun Monday July 18:
5 p.m. ET – Much’s flagship show NEW.MUSIC.LIVE. hits the air with a full hour devoted to DEGRASSI, featuring interviews with the cast live in-studio and exclusive sneak peeks of the new season.
7 p.m. ET – The action moves to the parking lot where fans can get their pic taken with members of the cast. These photos will be uploaded to Much’s Facebook page where fans can tag themselves and become the envy of all their friends! Much’s own Lauren Toyota hosts a Q&A session, where fans can interact and learn about their favourite cast members and find out what to expect this season. Fans interested in attending can RSVP here. For fans outside of Toronto, the Q&A session will be available live by visiting MuchMusic.com.
9 p.m. ET – In the DEGRASSI Season 11 premiere, all the students are abuzz about THE Spring Break event – Keke Palmer’s concert. Newly single Sav is depressed post-Holly-J break-up, but a flirtatious encounter with a beautiful stranger perks him up when she tells him to meet her at the show.
Returning to last summer’s successful telenovela style, new episodes of DEGRASSI air weeknights, Monday-Thursday at 9 p.m. ET, from Monday, July 18 until Thursday, September 1 on Much, MuchHD, and MuchMusic.com.
