Ever since TeenNick (formerly known as The N) brought the rights to Degrassi from Epitome Studios, TeenNick thought of a better yet controversial way to build a better audience to the channel and the show by creating "Chapters/Themes" to each season of Degrassi starting from Season 9. These chapters are divided into an amount depending on how many episodes can be aired. The United States and Canadian air dates are now the same, and now in the mid seasons, the episodes are lined up in a right way making it easier for TeenNick to air the episodes and make the chapters correctly. Below shows the different Season and mid season chapters starting from Season 9 to Season 12 in their correct order.
