CNN  — 

Rejoice, “Degrassi” fans! Class is back in session.

TeenNick announced Thursday that it had pulled the plug on “Degrassi: The Next Generation” after 14 seasons, and fans mourned that this season would be its last.

But quicker than you can say “hall pass,” Neflix has swooped in to save the show.

EW reports that both the streaming giant and Canada’s Family Channel will air 20 new episodes of “Degrassi” in early 2016. Netflix tweeted to fans to “meet the next class.”

“Next Class” will reportedly be the show’s new subtitle, and many of the current cast will continue their roles.

The series has been on the air in numerous variations for the past 35 years, making it one of the longest-running shows in Canadian TV history.
