This article is about the characters in the original series. For the current series, see List of Degrassi: The Next Generation characters.

The following is a list of characters who appeared in the teen drama series Degrassi Junior High and Degrassi High (including the immediate follow-up made-for-television movie, Degrassi: School's Out), which are part of the Degrassi universe. Hundreds of actors appeared the series throughout their run. There were distinct main youth characters among recurring youth characters, yet the latter were occasionally the central protagonists of episode plots. No plots centered around adult characters, though they were often important plot devices. Degrassi Junior High ran for three seasons, and was followed by Degrassi High, which ran for a further two seasons, and a made-for-television movie Degrassi: School's Out. Seasons 1 through 3 refer to Degrassi Junior High, and seasons 4 and 5 refer to Degrassi High and School's Out.
