It is the fourth series set in the fictional Degrassi universe created by Schuyler and Kit Hood in 1979.
Like its predecessors, Degrassi: The Next Generation follows a group of students from Degrassi Community School, a fictional school in Toronto, Ontario, and depicts some of the typical issues and challenges common to a teenager's life.
This season takes place during the second semester of the school year that began in season six and continues to depict the lives of a group of high school sophomores, juniors, seniors and college freshman as they deal with some of the challenges and issues young adults face, such as rape, school violence, cancer, drug use, prostitution, sexual misconduct, racism, sexism, parenthood, HIV and relationships. Season seven premiered in the US three months before it began broadcasting in Canada, on 5 October 2007. Bust, "A Move Part 1 and 2" were formed together to form "Degrassi Spring Break Movie".
In addition to the twenty-four regular episodes, two "special episodes" were produced, not part of the Degrassi continuity. The first, "Degrassi in Kenya" depicted the cast members travelling to Africa to assist the building of a school.
