The twelfth season of Degrassi begins July 16th and it seems as if one central storyline will be used to affect multiple characters along the way much more so than the Drianca storyline from the beginning of last season. A hockey team has been confirmed at Degrassi and it will sure stir up some trouble. So far we know that this team consists of Owen and newcomers Luke, Mike, and Campbell.

A.Fiona and Imogen scheme to end Marisol’s Student Council reign. The plan? Throw an unforgettable end-of-semester holiday carnival. But with a huge family crisis looming, Fiona worries she may have over-promised.
B.Clare makes peace with Alli but still needs the help of the one person who can actually write; Eli. Can these two put their differences aside and work together? Their relationship is put to the test and their true feelings come out.
C.Maya is frustrated with her home life and matters are even worse at school as she’s stuck in an uninspired grade 9 band class. Music means everything to her and Maya fears that, left unchallenged, her passion for music may be slipping away.
Can’t say I’m a fan of another love triangle especially this one because Bianca has made some drastic changes. I’m also not a fan of a love triangle that gets going in one episode and then seemingly ends in part 2 of the same episode. Now Katie has shown some jealousy in the past but the triangle is officially getting started. With that being said, Alicia is doing a fantastic job as Bianca and I hope we get to see Drew and Bianca back together because what they could have will definitely be more organic than the current relationship of Katie and Drew.
