DEGRASSI has been back on air for less than two weeks and it’s already obvious that this season is going to be as full of drama as the last one! In a recent interview with E!, Jessica Tyler, who plays Jenna on the show, revealed what we can expect from this season.
The first (and possibly most obvious) is that the seniors will be graduating from Degrassi, which is really quite depressing. The chances of them staying on the show after graduation and us getting to see them go to university are quite slim because DEGRASSI likes to stay high school oriented.
According to Jessica, this season will be the season of the showdowns. One we can already see brewing is between Eli and newcomer Becky, who isn’t on board with Eli’s version of Romeo and Juliet for the school musical. Interestingly enough, Jenna and Becky will actually end up spending a lot of time with each other because their bubbly personalities go well together.
It seems Jenna has her eyes on one of the members of the Ice Hounds, the new hockey team. Who the object of her affection is remains a secret, but we’ll take an educated guess and assume that it’s Becky’s brother because he’s the only one that hasn’t had an established storyline yet!
We know the show has just started, but what about the summer finale? Jessica promises that it will have viewers on the edge of their seats, as per usual with anything DEGRASSI related. We can hardly wait!!
