Stacie Mistysyn also received star billing as Caitlin Ryan for the entire season, although she only appeared in one episode.[4] The four adult actors had played the same characters in Degrassi Junior High and Degrassi High, two of the preceding series in the Degrassi franchise.[5] Mike Lobel, Deanna Casaluce, and Melissa DiMarco (as Jay Hogart, Alex Nuñez, and Daphne Hatzilakos respectively) were promoted from recurring cast members to regular cast members. Jamie Johnston was cast as Peter Stone.[6] Returning in their recurring roles were John Bregar as Dylan Michalchuk, Shenae Grimes as Darcy Edwards, Dalmar Abuzeid as Danny Van Zandt, Alex Steele as Angela Jeremiah, Linlyn Lue as Ms. Kwan, and Jennifer Podemski as Ms. Sauve.[7] Marc Donato was introduced as Derek Haig.[8] Film director Kevin Smith and actor Jason Mewes returned to the show for two episodes when they guest starred as exaggerated versions of themselves (for example Kevin is portrayed as being unmarried and childless). The episodes depict the premiere of Jay and Silent Bob Go Canadian, Eh!, a fictional feature film in the View Askewniverse series that used Degrassi Community School as a filming location during season four.[9] The scenes Alanis Morissette had filmed in season four to play the film's school principal were replayed as part of the film at the premiere.[10] Crew The season was produced by Epitome Pictures in association CTV. Funding was provided by The Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit and the Ontario Film and Television Tax Credit, the Canadian Television Fund and BCE-CTV Benefits, The Shaw Television Broadcast Fund, the Independent Production Fund, Mountain Cable Program, and RBC Royal Bank.[11][12] The executive producers were Epitome Pictures' president Stephen Stohn, and CEO Linda Schuyler, the co-creator of the Degrassi franchise. James Hurst served as the creative producer, David Lowe was the line producer and Sean Reycraft served as the executive story editor. Brendon Yorke and Alexandra Zarowny served as story editors.

Phil Earnshaw, Eleanore Lindo, Ron Oliver and Stefan Scaini directed the episodes.[12][13] Reception The fifth season of Degrassi: The Next Generation had an audience average of 767,000 viewers,[14] had an increase of twenty-four per cent over the previous season, and was Canada's most watched Canadian drama series.[15] The second episode of the season was watched by over one million Canadian viewers; it was the first time the series had reached that figure.[15] A two-part episode, aired to coincide with the Canadian National Eating Disorder Awareness Week, earned mixed reviews.[16] Laura Betker of the Winnipeg Sun said "Thankfully, the show moves far away from the health-class ideal that anorexia and bulimia simply stem from self-conscious teens. Rather, it displays it as the ugly disease that it truly is... All aspects of the story were done well. The plot was realistic. The display of the disease was truthful and progressive, while the acting was at an all time high... Miriam McDonald's performance was phenomenal. [She] performs with strength and credibility."[17] Bill Harris of the Toronto Sun criticized the episodes' "ham-fisted handling of anorexia" and wrote: "It’s just that, well, the Degrassi foray, while well-intentioned, leaves you hungry for a fresh insight, some relevant information, a compelling storyline, good writing, believable dialogue, anything." Harris even went as far as saying, "That Degrassi episode was so bad it made me want to throw up."[18] The show's treatment of the gay characters avoids being heavy handed or reducing their characters to little more than clichéd archetypes, such as the ‘tragic' one, or the ‘funny side kick', or the ‘bitchy' one. Nor are these characters just the colourful friends and unpaid therapists of the straight girl. As much as we all love the antics of Jack on Will and Grace, Degrassi has a broader vision, less about the stereotype and more about the realities of growing up gay. This depiction is certainly pink, but without being rose colored. — Jake Surette,, April 24, 2006.[19] Other storylines were well received, however., a website which focuses on the portrayal of homosexual and bisexual men in the media, and owned by MTV Networks' Logo cable television network, reported on the portrayal of two Degrassi: The Next Generation gay characters. "Degrassi features ongoing stories of real-life teen dilemmas—including intense gay and lesbian storylines—and does it without the righteous, 'On a Very Special Blossom' endings that many teen dramas and sitcoms thrive on."[19] The Gonzaga Bulletin, the student newspaper for Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington, reported on the show's popularity amongst its students.[20] Despite being well received by audiences and the generally good reviews, season five received only two nominations for awards. At the Gemini Awards, Jim McGrath won the category for "Best Original Music Score for a Dramatic Series".[21] The younger members of the cast were nominated for a Young Artist Award in the "Best Young Ensemble Performance in a TV Series (Comedy or Drama)" category.[22] Episodes In a change to previous seasons, CTV broadcast episodes one and two over two weeks, as opposed to an hour-long special.[23] In the U.S., The N did broadcast the episodes as an hour-long special, on 7 October 2005.[24] The N proceeded to broadcast the next ten episodes, and then put the season on hiatus until 7 April 2006, when it returned with another hour-long special.
