What's a Degrassi finale without something going terribly wrong?
Degrassi: Where we left off and what to expect
In this exclusive clip from Part 1 of the Season 12 summer finale, Eli (Munro Chambers) gets disappointing news that some parents are concerned about the content of his play. Principal Simpson then tells him that he may have to make major revisions on the eve of opening night — and we all know how well Eli handles change and rejection.
Chaz Bono is heading back to high school! The transgender activist has landed a guest spot on Degrassi: The Next Generation, People reports.
Bono will appear as himself, playing a celebrity guest judge at Degrassi's Battle of the Bands in an episode scheduled to air this fall.

The new CW series, imported from Canada, features an group of friends living in a seedy motel-style apartment complex struggling to make it in Tinseltown. At the focus is Abby, played by Degrassi alum Cassie Steele, a talented actress who has yet to get her big break. And if you've seen the opening scene of the premiere (the full episode is online), there's nothing glamorous about Abby's or her friends' paths to success. "Quite often people get into very desperate and bad places," Steele tells TVGuide.com. "That's what's interesting [about the show], seeing what people have to deal with on the dark side to get where they want to in life."
It may not be September, but Degrassi is back for a new school year.
When the show last aired (actually in September), we bid a sad farewell to Sav, Holly J and Anya, among others, who graduated. For those in the cast sticking around, the midseason finale wasn't too joyous. Adam was shot by a party-crashing gang member, Clare was dumped by Jake and made peace with her ex Eli (Munro Chambers). As the new season kicks off, TVGuide.com asked Chambers and newbie Alex Steele, who plays overachiever Tori, about what new calamities we can expect.
