Degrassi of the Dead Halloween Special!

In every episode, the students of Degrassi: The Next Generation tackle tough issues – but for the first time ever, they’re fighting a different kind of demon … the Undead!

An all-new homage to horror movies, “Degrassi of the Dead” goes live at 3:30 p.m. ET as darkness begins to fall Halloween night on The CTV Broadband Network at CTV.ca.

Directed by original Degrassi cast member Stefan Brogen, the half-hour “Zombisode” also includes behind-the-scenes footage of the making of the special, hosted by three Degrassi cast members.

Degrassi fans can get an early Halloween treat when the 30 minute “Degrassi of the Dead” airs Wednesday, Oct. 31 at 1 p.m. ET on CTV (visit CTV.ca to confirm local broadcast times). The special will also be available on demand on MTV Overdrive at MTV.ca.

In “Degrassi of the Dead,” horror hits Degrassi Community School when genetically modified food turns most of the students into Zombies. As The Undead walk the earth seeking fresh flesh, only a few survivors are left to fight against Zombie domination: how will Manny and Paige survive? In the second half of the Zombisode, Degrassi stars Cassie Steele (Manny Santos), Lauren Collins (Paige Michalchuk) and Aubrey Graham (Jimmy Brooks) go behind-the-scenes and share their thoughts on filming Degrassi’s first-ever “Zombisode.”

“The idea of doing a project that was a little dark and scary but still within the Degrassi universe really appealed to me,” said Brogren (Archie ‘Snake’ Simpson), director, producer and writer of “Degrassi of the Dead.” “I was also encouraged by the enthusiasm of the entire production team to push the envelope and do something completely different. I was amazed at how many actors came to me and asked to die a zombie death. Everyone involved really came to play!”
