The 13th season of Degrassi premiered on July 11, 2013, on MuchMusic in Canada and TeenNick in the United States. The first part of the season (13A) followed a weekly format for 7 weeks, depicting the summer of 2013. The second part of the season (13B) followed a weekly format for 8 weeks, depicting the fall of 2013. The rest of the season (13C and 13D) depicts the remaining parts of 2013-2014 school year. Since the premiere of 13B on October 3, 2013, episodes aired on MTV instead of MuchMusic in Canada.
