Degrassi Remixes Classic Theme Song for Next Class Opening Credits

Attention, longtime Degrassi viewers: Prepare to have a lot of thoughts.

Along with the teen drama’s move to Netflix in January comes a brand-new opening credit sequence, which puts an energetic spin on the series’ iconic theme song. Degrassi: Next Class‘ 30-second, social media-themed intro, which popped up on YouTube on Monday, also offers a quick look at the who’s who of Degrassi Community School.

Though this new version is arguably less epic than the one used in Degrassi‘s early days — back when it was acceptable to devote the better part of a minute to a tour of the school and its various inhabitants — it’s certainly an improvement over the 10-second version used in Seasons 13 and 14. Can you tell how seriously we take this?

Hit PLAY on the show’s new opening credits above, then drop a comment with your thoughts below: Will you “follow” Degrassi to Netflix?

    When you say “classic”, I assume you are referring to the actual classic Degrassi from the 80s. Don’t tease us 80s fans!!!

    I’m not a fan of the remixed song, but I do like the new opening. It definitely keeps up with the times.

    The newbies, Maya, Tristan, and Zig’s class but especially when Zoe and Miles joined them is what brought this show down. If I was TPTB I would’ve scraped them all and started from scratch again for this new Netflix venture.
