However, in January 2016, a sequel series, titled Degrassi: Next Class, was announced for broadcast on Family Channel in Canada and streaming on Netflix in the United States as well as all other countries where the service is available (excluding Australia, France, and Canada until later 2016).
The Degrassi universe was created in 1979 by Playing With Time, a production company owned by former school teacher Linda Schuyler and her partner Kit Hood.
Internationally, Degrassi: The Next Generation has been highly successful in the US, where it was broadcast on Teen Nick, as well as being broadcast in 140 other countries.
