The new season of Degrassi: The Next Generation is here!
In the hour-long premiere, “Just Canâ€™t Get Enough,” when Mia (Nina Dobrev) is offered a huge modeling contract in Paris, Peter (Jamie Johnston) decides heâ€™ll go with her, but soon realizes he doesn’t fit into her sophisticated world.
Feeling frustrated and insecure at a posh party, Peter is offered an escape — crystal meth. But when his â€˜tripâ€™ goes terribly wrong, Peter swears heâ€™ll never touch the stuff again. With the reality of coming down, Peter realizes he just wants more, but will he risk his relationships with Mia and his band The StÃ¼dz for another high? Meanwhile at Degrassi, Alli (Melinda Shankar) is concerned when new girl Jenna (Jessica Tyler) tries to steal the attention of her best friend Clare (Aislinn Paul).
You’ll also see some new characters on the popular teen show — Declan (Landon Liboiron) and Fiona (Annie Clark), who are siblings from a diplomatic family, musically-gifted Jenna and Dave (Jahmil French).
Degrassi is also teaming up with National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) to air a PDA on the affects of using crystal meth. Teens can log onto the NIDA website for more information.
Degrassi: The Next Generation premieres THIS Friday, October 9 @ 8PM ET/PT on TeenNick!
