"Degrassi: The Next Generation" may be over, but that's not stopping us from taking a minute to reflect on all of the important life lessons the Canadian teen show taught us.
We all know where Drake ended up, but what happened to the rest of the cast? Believe it or not, Spinner is still a drummer (and he doesn't have that platinum blond hair anymore, thank God). In his Twitter bio, he describes himself thusly: "actor, tech enthusiast, Sinatra." Make of that what you will.
Shane has had a few minor acting roles over the years, and is currently the drummer for the Toronto-based band Dear Love. Adamo Angelo Ruggiero can now be seen on his Youtube channel, The Dot with Adamo, where he describes himself as "an ex-child addicted to T-Swift ballads," proving that even in real life, Marco is still the cast member you'd most want to be friends with.
