A Canadian but also aired and popular show about teens in mainly high school who deal with intense issues. Issues such as pregnancy,rape,dropouts, school shootings, fitting in, crushes, plastic surgery, virginity, family, adoptions etc. Although most shows come of cheesy or corny when handling these issues Degrassi does not and has millions of fans because of that.The show also has a huge cast that grows and grows in a few years it'll have like 50 cast members(joking). Also Degrassi 1st premired in the 80's then ended, then began again in the early 2000's now called in full name Degrassi-The Next Generation
Degrassi is the BOMB show. Everybody loves it.

Is a spin of of the show Degrassi High which is a spin off of the show Degrassi Junior High. In Degrassi junior high Spike has a baby named emma. Degrassi is revolved around Emma and her generation of students attending Degrassi high.
Overall just a great show that is addicting.
Can't talk, Degrassi's on

Degrassi is a one way street that runs north between Queen and Gerrard streets in the east-end South Riverdale area of Toronto. It is on the west side of the railroad tracks that run through Jimmy Simpson Park. It shares a streetcar stop with Saulter street, which is a dead end street that runs south from Queen.
Next stop Degrassi Saulter.

a ludicrous, overwrought, badly written, lamely acted television show about a bunch of stupid irrelevant teens and their screwed-up implausible lives.
Degrassi was ripped off from an equally bad show in the '80s called Degrassi Street.

1. best tv show EVER! the show is based on teens in canada who go thru the same issues teens today do, such as sex, rape, drugs, etc. also, unlike most shows for teens, the plots arent far fetched versions on what its really like in the real world. AND the actors are usually the same age as there characters. basically, it goes there.

2. where drake, the rapper, and cassie steele got his big break.
1. girl 1: omg did you see that episode of degrassi last nite?
girl 2: omg yes! i cant believe it goes there!
girl 1: ikr?

2. dude: hey dude did you know that drake became big on degrassi?
other dude: yea, so did cassie steele!
dude: mam cassie steele? shes FINE!
