Degrassi Season 14 premieres October 28th at 9PM on MTV Canada and TeenNick, but the highly demanded music video promo for the season airs tomorrow! TeenNick released a behind the scenes sneak peek earlier today, which can be seen above.
TeenNick also revealed the four new characters that will be joining the cast this season.
Lola Pacini (Amanda Arcuri) – A boy-crazy cheerleader with colorful hair and a vibrant personality.
Shay Powers (Reiya Downs) – A girl determined to be one of the school’s top athletes. While Shay has high standards when it comes to high school and boys, the only guy she’s interested doesn’t exactly feel the same way.
Jonah Haak (Ehren Kassam) – While he used to be a bit of a troublemaker, Jonah has seen the light and is ready to make new friends who share his strong faith. While he may have given up all his vices, Jonah’s kept the rock ‘n’ roll.
Arlene Takahashi (Devyn Nekoda) – The quintessential nerd who can be found reading comics while wearing elf ears…that is when she’s not being picked on by the cheerleaders.
MTV Canada released the episode description and 9 episode stills for the premiere episode “Smells Like Teen Spirit.”
Clare has a serious dilemma that will affect her entire future and confides in Alli. Zoë sees red when Becky tells her she’s too much of a distraction for the power cheer team. It’s time for Zoë to bring Becky down, literally. Miles and Tristan are getting close, but with his campaign in full swing, Mr. Hollingsworth is worried his son’s behaviour could damage his political prospects. An upset Miles decides to take annoying his father to a whole new level.
