Fans of the hit Canadian TV Series Degrassi High are in for a treat, for the first time in 20 years the original cast is set to reunite.
Degrassi High was a popular Canadian TV series that ran from 1987-1991. It followed the stories of students at a high-school in Toronto, and gained a massive cult following in North America, including director Kevin Smith. Since then it has spawned several spin-offs, including Degrassi: The Next Generation that helped launch the career of Toronto based rapper Drake. Since the series went off the air however the cast of the original series haven’t gotten together very often, and not in 20 years.
