    I know I’m a little late to the party, but I stumbled upon this after rewatching New Class season one of netflix, and they had a Muslim chaeacter named Goldi. At first I thought they were going to go somewhere with her character, but she ended up a plot device basically, propelling Miles and Tristans plot forward. And Its a shame. she was pushed right back to the background.
    That said, has judiasm been fairly depresented? I don’t recall any storylines or characters.

    I’d be really interested in a review from a Muslim perspective of Degrassi: Next Class season 3 since it dealt a bit more in depth with the show’s Muslim characters.
