The Search Party Creators Reveal Why The Series Is Ending With Season 5

There's nothing on television quite like "Search Party." If you ever watched "Degrassi," you might be familiar with the tagline "Degrassi: It goes there," but no show goes there like "Search Party." Sure, a surreal series like "Twin Peaks" might surprise you with an alternate dimension and "The Leftovers" has their religion-on-acid thing, but the story beats and plot lines of other TV series cannot compare to the wild ride that is "Search Party." That's not to say those other shows aren't incred...

Degrassi Writer Says Drake Threatened Legal Action When His Character Ended Up In A Wheelchair

Before Drake was Drake, the biggest rap star in the world, he was Aubrey Graham, the guy who played basketball star Jimmy Brooks on the Canadian teen soap Degrassi: The Next Generation. Jimmy ended up spending several seasons confined to a wheelchair after being paralyzed in a school shooting, and Drake’s performance as “Wheelchair Jimmy” became a meme that haunted Drake throughout his early rap career.
