Entertainment TV Back to School: See the 'Degrassi: The Next Generation' Cast Reunited! Netflix will air 20 new episodes in 2016 By Michele Corriston Published on June 30, 2015 10:15 AM Share Tweet Pin Email Photo: George Pimentel/Wireimage Whatever it takes, they know they can make it through. Degrassi stars Shane Kippel, Lauren Collins, Jake Epstein and Adamo Ruggiero reunited Monday while shooting promos for the show, which got canceled earlier this month after 14 years on the air – but is coming back with 20 new episodes in 2016 thanks to the powers that be at Netflix. Still, every fan of the Canadian tween/teen drama knows that the show really hit its stride in the Next Generation years, with Kippel’s slacker Spinner, Collins’ queen bee Paige, Epstein’s bipolar rocker Craig and Ruggiero’s proudly out Marco ruling the hallways. Absent from the photos? Shenae Grimes (Darcy), Nina Dobrev (Mia) and Drake (who played Jimmy but will always be Aubrey Graham in our hearts), who’ve all made it big in the States.
