During the SAB panel earlier this morning (Friday, January 11), it was announced that an all ASL (American Sign Language) episode will be airing in March.
The storyline puts the audience in the middle of a student uprising in which the very essence of their deaf identity is at stake and will feature open captions for hearing viewers.
“I’ve been wanting to do an all-ASL episode since the series began, and the storyline we’ve been focusing on this season gave us the perfect opportunity. It’s an exciting, visual, empowering story of kids who are different fighting back, and it allows our audience to experience the world as our deaf characters do. We’ve been building to this for 39 episodes and we’re all thrilled to be the first to try this,” series creator and executive producer Lizzy Weiss shared.
