Summer school sucks, unless itâ€™s DEGRASSI summer school! Fans wonâ€™t want to miss the highly anticipated return of DEGRASSI to MuchMusic, with the Season 12 premiere, Monday July 16 at 10 p.m. ET. The latest season of DEGRASSI is sure to bring on the heat with new storylines and students. Viewers can watch full episodes on muchmusic.com after the broadcast.
Season 11 of DEGRASSI ranked as the #1 Canadian series on MuchMusic for the broadcast year, among total viewers and among teens 12-17, people 12-34, adults 18-34 and 18-49 and female viewers aged 12-34, 12-17, 18-34, and 18-49. In the dramatic season finale, Fiona and Imogen shared their first kiss and the will-they-wonâ€™t-they couple of the century, Eli and Clare, indulged in a not-so first kiss. With the premiere episode, â€œSay It Rightâ€, (Part 1), the halls of Degrassi are full of fresh faces and returning favourites, ready for a whole new year of drama.

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 doesnâ€™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. Encore episodes air Saturdays (2 p.m. â€“ 4 p.m. ET) and Sundays from (8 p.m. â€“ 10 p.m. ET) so fans can catch up on the weekâ€™s action.
