Minis Edit

This season of minis had only five episodes ordered, all used for one big final episode of Doctor Degrassi. ETV later stated that they were the deciding factor on cancelling the series, stating that "Degrassi should use all of its available episodes on Degrassi, nothing else." Despite this, ETV stated that they greenlit an American Doctor Who reboot following the success of the Degrassi miniseries.

Development Edit

On August 19, 2019, ETV confirmed that the older class would graduate in Season 5, a move which therefore meant they would leave the show at the end of the next season.[5] [6] As a result, the Degrassi producers stated that the senior class would be the main focus of the season, with many less episodes on the juniors.[7][8] By the end of the season, it was known that Sonja Hernandez and Leona Bates would not be graduating and thus remain in the cast next season.[9][10][11] The producers then announced that from season 6 on, they would count one season as one semester due to the low episode count, a move which allowed Hernandez and Bates to stay until Season 7, making Hernandez have the highest episode count by a landslide, now only beatable by a junior.[12][13][14][15] A last minute decision, ETV announced on October 5, 2017, that two more episodes would be ordered as well as two minis thanks to the success of the premiere episode.[16][17]
