The tenth season of Degrassi premiered in Canada on July 19, 2010, concluded on April 22, 2011, and consists of 44 episodes. Degrassi is a Canadian serial teen drama television series. Previously known as Degrassi: The Next Generation,[2] the suffix "the Next Generation" was dropped this season, due to the original next generation of students having all been written out. With the start of the tenth season, the series has survived longer than the nine-year gap between Degrassi High's telemovie School's Out, and Degrassi’s premiere episode "Mother and Child Reunion".

Although only two school years have passed in the story timeline since season six, season ten is set in the first semester, and first half of the second semester, in which the years it aired. Writers have been able to use a semi-floating timeline, so that the issues depicted are modern for their viewers. This season depicts the lives of a group of high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors, as they deal with some of the challenges and issues that teenagers face such as domestic violence, dysfunctional families, self image, bullying, sexual harassment, gender identity/transsexualism, teenage pregnancy, online predators, homophobia, school violence, divorce, religion, kidney failure, alcoholism, sexual identity, financial difficulties, running away and relationships.

This season doubled the order of episodes, and switched to a telenovela/soap opera format, with the show airing new episodes four days a week, for the first 24 episodes.[3][4] Production for the season began on March 26, 2010[5] at Epitome Pictures' studios in Toronto, Ontario. This was the first season not to air on broadcast television. It is also the first season to have simultaneous airings in Canada and the United States.[6] This was the earliest start to a season. In the US, the first 24 episodes of season ten were promoted as Degrassi: The Boiling Point, while the final twelve episodes of the season were promoted as Degrassi: In Too Deep.[7] The fifth Degrassi dedicated soundtrack, Degrassi: The Boiling Point, was released February 1, 2011.

Cast[edit]

The tenth season features twenty-two actors who receive star billing with sixteen of them returning from the previous season. Returning cast members include:

Beginning this season, Stefan Brogren is the only original cast member (in terms of either season 1 in 2001 or the continuity's start in 1987) to still appear in the series.


Joining the main cast this season are:

Half-way through the season, recurring actors Shannon Kook-Chun and Daniel Kelly who play Zane Park and Owen Milligan were also promoted to the main cast.


The eight actors from season nine who did not return this season were:

All left the series except for Scott Paterson, who made a guest appearance.

Reception[edit]

In Canada, more than one million viewers tuned in to watch the first four episodes.[8] Degrassi was nominated for a GLAAD Media Award in the Best Drama Series category, alongside Brothers & Sisters, Grey's Anatomy, Pretty Little Liars, and the winner True Blood.[9][10] These awards, honouring works that fairly and accurately represent the LGBT community and issues, were announced March 19, 2011.

The two-part episode "My Body Is a Cage", centering around transgender character Adam's struggles with his family over his gender identity, won a 2010 Peabody Award for presenting its subject in a manner that "neither trivializes nor overdramatizes its subject".[11] It also received a nomination for a Primetime Emmy Award in the outstanding children's program category, alongside iCarly, Victorious, Wizards of Waverly Place, and winner A Child's Garden of Poetry.[12]

In the 26th Gemini Awards, Linda Schuyler, Stefan Brogren, David Lowe, Stephen Stohn, Stephanie Williams, and Brendon Yorke, won an award for best children's or youth fiction program or series, for producing Degrassi. Directors Phil Earnshaw and Pat Williams were nominated for "My Body Is a Cage (Part 2)" and "All Falls Down (Part 2)" respectively, for best direction in a children's or youth program or series, "All Falls Down (Part 2)" would win. "My Body Is a Cage (Part 2)" would win a Gemini for Jordan Todosey (Adam Torres) in best performance in a children's or youth program or series, however the writer, Michael Grassi, lost to an episode of Spliced, an animated series, for writing in a children's or youth program or series.[13][14] At the 2011 Young Artist Awards, A.J. Saudin was nominated as a Recurring Young Actor in the Best Performance in a TV Series.[15]

Episodes[edit]

The first run, of 24 episodes, began after the feature-length film Degrassi Takes Manhattan in July 2010, and ran for six weeks.[16] This is also the first season that the episodes aired on the same nights in Canada and the United States, with the exception being the first week, when the United States was one day behind Canada. This is the first time that the opening credits have been revised halfway through the season, and was repeated for season 11.
