Degrassi: The Next Generation is not considered to be a "spin-off" series of the other Degrassi series because no character from the older series became a regular character on The Next Generation". Five former characters have had recurring roles, however. They are Caitlin, Joey, Mr. Raditch, Spike, and Snake (Who has become Mr. Simpson). A few other characters also made one or two guest-starring appearances or were seen in cameos.
J.T.'s first and middle names "James Tiberius" were the same as those of "Captain Kirk" on the original 1966 version of "Star Trek".
Ironically, episodes #51 and 52, "Accidents Will Happen" was shown in Canada but not in the U.S. because they dealt with abortion. Then episode#67, "Time Stands Still - Part 2" had a viewer discretion advisory in Canada due to a school-shooting and there was no such advisory in the U.S.
Every season 2-6 episode title on Degrassi: The Next Generation was the name of a 1980s song!
Snake gives a speech to his class in episode #27, "White Wedding - Part 1" that begins: "Love ... exciting and new ...". Those are the theme lyrics for the 1977-1986 TV series, "The Love Boat"!
