Degrassi: Next Class

Degrassi: Next Class Character To Get Abortion This Season – Will Include Scene With Doctor



Never one to shy away from socially controversial issues, Degrassi: Next Class will bring the issue of abortion front and center for season 3. During an interview with Canadian television program “etalk” actress Amanda Arcuri discusses her character “Lola” discovering that she is pregnant after she realizes that she has been taking her birth control medication wrong.

The show will include a scene with the doctor as she prepares for the abortion and dealing with it afterward. The Degrassi franchise has had storylines where it has dealt with teen pregnancy before but never has actually shown an abortion-related scene.

Arcuri realizes the impact this episode will have for those on both sides of the issue especially for viewers in the United States. (Degrassi is filmed in Canada)

Degrassi: Next Class will premiere on Netflix January 6 as well as the Family Channel app for Canada viewers.
