Degrassi: Next Class was a Canadian teen drama television series set in the Degrassi universe, which was created by Linda Schuyler and Kit Hood in 1979. It is the fifth and final series in the Degrassi franchise and a direct sequel to Degrassi: The Next Generation. The series was created by Linda Schuyler, Stephen Stohn, Sarah Glinski, and Matt Huether and is produced by DHX Studios Toronto (a subsidiary of DHX Media). The current executive producers are Schuyler, her husband Stephen Stohn, Sarah Glinski, and Matt Huether. The series is filmed at Epitome's studios in Toronto, Ontario, rather than on the real De Grassi Street from which the franchise takes its name.

The first season of Next Class premiered on January 4, 2016, on Family's new teen programming block, F2N in Canada. The series saw its United States (and international) debut on January 15, 2016, on Netflix. In Australia, the show premiered on ABC3 on May 16, 2016. The first season ended on Family Channel on January 17, 2016, following a two-week run.

The fourth season was made available for streaming on the Family Channel App on June 30, 2017, with the episodes beginning to air daily on July 3, 2017. The series was then released on Netflix on July 7, 2017.

On March 7, 2019, show producer and frequent director Stefan Brogren confirmed the show's cancellation by Netflix.
