Degrassi season 2 is the second season of the newest installment in the Degrassi franchise set to debut in summer 2011. Like the previous season, in summer it will air every night at 9:00 on TeenNick and Muchmusic simultaneously, and weekly throughout the 2011-2012 school year. The season's summer event, called Now or Never, will begin in *April 2009, with the kids returning from spring break, and will end with the graduation of the seniors. The weekly episodes, New Beginnings, will be retconned to depict the fall 2011 semester. Keke Palmer will be singing her song "One You Call" in the premiere, and the DJ's who appeared in the second season of The Next Generation (Girls Just Wanna Have Fun) are going to appear as well. The entire season will contain 45 episodes, one of which was filmed in the autumn of 2010. The new theme song has incorporated the uniforms into the sequence as well. Marisol Lewis, who was a guest star in the first season, is now upgraded to a regular character, while 3 new characters have been added to the cast: unique media whore Imogen Moreno, heartthrob Jake Martin, and athletic Katie Matlin. Mo Mashkour will also be upgraded to a recurring character.
- There are some errors in the show mentioning things that happen after the year 2009, so for the second half of the season the writers retconned the show to the current year to depict more modern issues for viewers.

Smash Into You: Adam has a secret admirer; Alli considers taking back Dave, but Jacinta interrupts; Marisol is suspicious of Mo's motives.
