The Emmy-nominated 12th season of Degrassi premiered on July 16, 2012 at a new time of 9 p.m. EST, on MuchMusic (Canada) and TeenNick (U.S.). This first half of the season followed a 5-week telenovela format with 20 episodes, airing Monday through Thursdays at 10pm, marketed as Degrassi: Showdown, depicting the time right after winter break of the 2011-2012 school year.

The second part of the season followed a weekly format with 10 episodes, airing Friday nights at 9pm, named simply Degrassi, depicting the time about a week after where Showdown left off.  The third and final part of the season, marketed as Degrassi: Anything Could Happen, premiered on February 15th, with new episodes rolling out through Spring 2013, depicting spring break up until the end of the school year.

Four actors were added to the main cast: Dylan EverettSarah Fisher, Craig Arnold, and Demetrius Joyette. The producers have also assembled a whole new recurring cast. Production and casting for the season began on February 27, 2012, with filming beginning on March 19, 2012, at Epitome Pictures studios in Toronto, Ontario. TeenNick used two slogans for this season, "Whose Side Are You On?" and "The Showdown That Will Tear Degrassi Apart," while the MuchMusic slogan was, "The Kids at Degrassi Come Undone."
