A Canadian show that follows up the original 80's Series, Degrassi Junior High. Some nicknames for this show are: DTNG; D:TNG; and sometimes just plain Degrassi. In Canada, it is aired on CTV, while in the US, it is aired on The-N (Also known as Noggin). This show takes place a Degrassi Community School in Canada, and talks about teenage issues such as: sexuality, abusive relationships, abusive families, cutting, drugs, and more. The show started airing in 2001, and is currently airing and filming.

However, due to these very dramatic teenage issues, The N has editted some small changes that CTV hasn't:
1) In "Whisper to a Scream", they did not show Ellie cutting her arm.
2) Craig sniffing coke in front of Manny
3) Manny's thong in "U Got The Look" was lowered so it didn't show as much
4) JT getting stabbed, and blood running down his shirt

The N has recently aired "Accidents Will Happen", which was never aired on The N until the "Every episode Ever" marathon, due to the plot, which involves abortion. Many Americans were outraged, but now they air it regularly.
Degrassi: The Next Generation is one of the most awesome shows I've ever watched before!
