[[caption-width-right:287:The Season 3 Cast: [[ClosetGeek Cassidy]], [[TheCasanova Jesse]], [[FieryRedhead Cody]], [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Squib]], [[CreepyChild Sunny]], [[TheTease Adena]], and [[ButtMonkey Rick]]]]

''15/Love'' was a Canadian-produced television series revolving around the lives of the students at Cascadia, a British Columbia private school geared towards aspiring tennis players. The show ran for three seasons and fifty-four episodes, beginning in September of 2004 and finishing in October of 2006. The show was notable for having had not one, but two of its main characters killed off in the Season 1 finale following the tragic RealLife deaths of their actors in a car crash.

The show's characters remained more or less consistent from season to season, with [[AudienceSurrogate Cody Myers]], [[TheTease Adena Styles]] and [[HighSchoolHustler Gary "Squib" Furlong]] present from the first episode until the last. Other mainstays included school president [[DeanBitterman Harold Bates]], ButtMonkey Rick Geddes, and child tennis prodigy [[LittleMissBadass Sunny Capaduca]]. In Season 1, Megan O'Conner and Sebastian Dube were also a part of the main cast; following their actors' deaths they were replaced by Tanis [=McTaggart=] and Cameron White in Season 2, and Cassidy Payne and Jesse Siegel in Season 3. Coach Artie Gunnarson, present in both Seasons 1 & 2 was replaced in Season 3 by Coach Brock, and Nate Bates, the school president's son joined the cast.

The show was broadcast on YTV and enjoyed a relatively successful run, given the odd premise.

Not to be confused with ''15-Love'', the three-issue MarvelComics series.

'''Tropes Appearing In This Series Include:'''
* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Discussed with regards to Jesse's persona. It certainly helps him impress girls, but when it comes to winning over [[spoiler: Adena]] it's his NiceGuy side that ends up helping him out.
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: How Megan seems to feel about Adena.
* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: Adena's dad who will not stop shouting at her or the refs, and Tanis' dad who works as a mascot.
* AudienceSurrogate: Cody.
* BelligerentSexualTension: Squib and Cody in Season 1.
* BigManOnCampus: How Squib sees himself.
* BlondesAreEvil: Sunny Capaduca looked like a cute little blonde girl, but was the closest thing to a recurring villain that the series had. Avoided with Cassidy in Season 3, and [[BlondGuysAreEvil Squib]] who was a [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold bit of a jerk]] but far from evil.
* BrattyHalfPint: Sunny.
* ButtMonkey: Rick. Geeky, socially awkward, and a bad tennis player. Not a great combo.
* TheCasanova: Subverted. Jesse in Season 3 looks and acts the part but has never actually had sex. This more or less [[AManIsNotAVirgin kills his reputation]] when it comes out.
* TheCharacterDiedWithHim: When Jaclyn Linetsky and Vadim Schneider were killed in a car crash, their characters (Megan O'Conner and Sebastian Dube) were killed in a plane crash on the way back from a tournament.
* ClosetGeek: Cassidy, who'd rather watch a ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' marathon than sports.
* CreepyChild: Sunny again. The girl has no soul.
* DawsonCasting: Most of the kids were in their late teens/early twenties when filming began; they were supposed to be fifteen. Sunny, who's treated like a little girl, was ''actually'' fifteen.
* DeanBitterman: Bates is often treated as such by the cast, though in truth, he's much closer to being a SternTeacher[=/=]ManipulativeBastard cross.
* DefrostingIceQueen: The school doctor. Interactions with Adena and Bates help to thaw her out.
* DrugsAreBad: Squib's brother died from them, he himself has had issues with them, and Jesse begins abusing them in Season 3, requiring an intervention from Squib to fix.
* EmotionlessGirl[=/=]SugarAndIcePersonality: The coldly professional school doctor, nicknamed Dr. Downer by the students. She warms up to Adena though, and is eventually revealed to have a crush on Bates.
* EvilRedhead: Violet
* FieryRedhead: Cody.
* {{Foil}}: Don't tell [[HighSchoolHustler Squib]], but [[SharpDressedMan well-dressed]] ManipulativeBastard [[DeanBitterman President Bates]] is what he is going to look like in twenty years.
* GiveGeeksAChance: Cassidy and Rick end up this way.
* GoneHorriblyRight: In one episode Tanis and Cameron pulled a prank designed to terrify Sunny. It worked--and caused her to hurt herself falling down the stairs, leading to the two of them being assigned to her as slaves.
* HairTriggerTemper: Tanis
* HighSchoolHustler: Squib
* HollywoodNerd: [[ButtMonkey Rick]] & Nate.
* HospitalHottie: Dr. Downer is very attractive, if in a DefrostingIceQueen kind of way.
* HotTeacher: The girls hold this opinion of Coach Brock. While he's generally too feared/disrespected to get this kind of treatment, Bates ain't hard on the eyes either.
* InformedAttractiveness: Adena is frequently held up as the most attractive member of the cast. She's certainly very good looking, but not to a ridiculously greater degree than the other female leads.
* JerkassFacade: Jesse, who acts like a total prick because he thinks it'll [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys help him get girls]].
* JerkJock: Squib and Jesse both have aspects of this but get over it. Sunny is a rarity being a young female example.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Squib. He's arrogant, sarcastic, and condescending, but far from a bad person.
* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: Occasional PetTheDog moments aside, Sunny.
* KillerRabbit: Sunny is a small cute girl. And if you cross her you will pay. Anybody else noticing a pattern here?
* LadyKillerInLove: Happens to Jesse in Season 3.
* LargeHam: Nearly everyone. Squib, Cody, Nate, Sunny, Jesse, and Bates are all up there, with [[ButtMonkey Rick]] being the greatest example.
* LittleMissBadass: Sunny's the tennis player variant, right down to the cynicism and ManipulativeBastard tendencies.
* LoveTriangle: [[TriangRelations Type 3]] between Sebastian, Adena, and Megan in Season 1, with Megan and Sebastian being attracted to each other and Adena wanting Sebastian. Made worse by the fact that Megan thinks Adena is much more attractive than she is. Season 3 gets more complicated, with Cody in a relationship with Nate but attracted to ex-boyfriend Squib who wants her back.
** Another version appears briefly in a Season 3 episode where Sunny is crushing on a guy who wants nothing to do with her (can't really blame him there), while a ball boy is crushing on her.
* AManIsNotAVirgin: Discussed in one Season 1 episode where, when all the characters are talking about their romantic lives; both the guys claim to have had sex, while the girls are divided 2-1 (it should be noted that of the two guys, Sebastian is quite obviously lying, while [[HighSchoolHustler Squib]] may well be telling the truth). Brought up again in Season 3 with Jesse's problems in that department.
* ManipulativeBastard: Sunny Capaduca, who has the staff wrapped around her finger, and can usually use the other students to her advantage. Squib doesn't do to badly either, and can occasionally manipulate Sunny, usually by playing to her ego. Bates also has his moments; he's basically what Squib is going to look like as an adult.
* MissingMom: Cameron's mom is dead.
* [[MrExposition Ms Exposition]]: Cody for the audience.
* PetTheDog: Sunny does it maybe once a season. The best example is the final, where she deliberately throws a match so that Adena will play again. Bates also gets these, and in fact bends the rules several times so that he can avoid expelling a student.
* PunnyName: "Tanis, anyone?"
* PutOnABus: Tanis and Cameron at the end of Season 2.
* RomanticFalseLead: Nate Bates became one for Cody in Season 3. Originally Season 2 had been intended as the final season, with Squib going off to play professionally and Cody getting together with Nate, who she had a lot in common with. When Season 3 began and Squib returned though, the writers had to get rid of Nate. This was done surprisingly tastefully: Cody broke up with him after realising they had ''too much'' in common; the two of them remained friends, and Nate eventually left the school to pursue a career in the theatre, something his character had always wanted to do. Violet was a more traditional one for Squib, being a psychotic {{Yandere}} who just hid it well.
* SchoolNewspaperNewsHound: Cody in several episodes.
* SharpDressedMan: Squib cleans up very nicely. Bates is always dressed this way.
* ShipTease: Sebastien/Megan and Cameron/Tanis were teased heavily, but never got anywhere.
* SitcomArchNemesis: Squib & Bates, Squib & Nate.
* StageMom: Adena's dad's a male version, pushing her to excel no matter what.
* TheTease: Adena's a high school variant. She likes to talk about sex and flirt, but has never actually done it.
* TomboyishName: Cody.
* TheUnfavourite: Squib thinks that his parents preferred his older brother to him.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Squib and pretty much anyone, especially after Sebastien's death.
* WellDoneSonGuy: Nate Bates for his father, President Bates. They get better.
