Degrassi: The Next Generation

2001 TV-PG

The long-running franchise emerges in the 21st century with a fresh crew of students at the titular Toronto high school. While staying true to the topical and frank nature of its predecessors, the show also features direct links to the past. Among them are Emma, whose mother Spike was one of the most popular "Degrassi High" characters, and Snake, a holdover from the previous series who's now a teacher at the school.
