Characters / Degrassi

This is the character sheet for Degrassi: The Next Generation. Characters are group by class and "tenure" on the show and main character/credit status (aside from some of the "top-billing" college kids who share a folder). The series was retconned in season 10 to the 2010-2011 school year even though the last class to graduate was the class of 2008. So for simplicity's sake, we're still grouping the cast by class and age group. To help keep your scorecards, each Class folder lists what season that class graduated in. Also for simplicity's sake, Degrassi: Next Class will be referred to as a continuation as opposed to it's own series and each season will be listed in the production ordernote .

Also, this character list does contain unmarked spoilers for the entire series, so please tread lightly or not at all. The show's been on since 2001; most of these are Late Arrival Spoilers.

And lastly, make yourself comfortable. This will take awhile. And since Degrassi has it's roots in educating the audience about certain issues, we've included helpful links. Because knowing is half the battle.

Due to page length, the page has been split by grade for the post-millenium series. If you came here from the Franchise/ namespace looking for The '80s characters, find them here.
