'Degrassi' season 13: Get ready for a long, hot summer -- EXCLUSIVE

Degrassi 09

Mazel tov, Degrassi – you’ve finally reached bar mitzvah age!

And if this brand-spankin’-new promo for season 13 (oy vey, we still can’t believe it) is any indication, becoming a man – or an adult TV show, or whatever – will bring with it a whole lot of juicy drama. Expect to see a gang of new trouble-causing faces – a teen TV star! A poor little rich boy! – and several brief snippets of storylines to come. Hint: There is a good amount of shirtlessness.

As the preview notes, Degrassi is “basically your high school.” You know, if your high school were completely cuckoo bananas.

Degrassi returns Thursday, July 11, 9 p.m. ET on TeenNick.
