Current season, ratings and renewal chances
Season 1 of Degrassi: Next Class came out in Canada on Monday, January 4, 2016 and was released in its entirety (10 half-hour episodes) on Netflix to the international audiences. Initially, this new chapter of the dramedy series was planned to be season 15 of the old version, but after the producing team made a deal with an online streaming giant, it was changed into a new stand-alone series. The structure of the reincarnated show remained unchanged with each episode consisting of several separate storylines. There are some characters from the old version, mostly those that were brought in seasons 11-14, and there are some new characters as well, including toxic Esme. The reviews have been somewhat mixed, but mostly positive. The reason some viewers felt somewhat apprehensive about the revived version is that many expected it to be in fully line with the old version. But Netflix has definitely made the revived version a lot edgier, raising some very relevant issues that modern teens face these days such as drug addiction, bullying, etc. Some viewers say the new show is poorly written and has too many stereotypical characters, while others comment that the new series have completely met their expectations. Let’s see if the revived show manages to get enough love to get renewed.
UPDATED January 20, 2016: It turns out, that there was always going to be a second chapter of the teen dramedy series.

The online streaming company has clarified during its TCA panel presentation that the initial order was for two 10-episode seasons of the revived series.
