Degrassi Black2 Hole

Degrassi Black Hole welcome sign. Motto: It got Kendra, could it get you?

The Degrassi Black Hole is the term for when characters from Degrassi have disappeared for no apparent reason. Sometimes the actor will leave the series or the writers don't have any material or story lines for the characters anymore. Whatever the reason, a character is considered "black holed" when they are never seen again and no explanation was given for their abrupt departure.
