Toronto ComiCon presented by Fan Expo Canada, announced it will host a special reunion with the original cast of the groundbreaking series "Degrassi High." For the first time in 20 years, Pat Mastroianni (Joey Jeremiah), Stacie Mistysyn (Caitlin Ryan), Stefan Brogren (Snake "Archie" Simpson), Kirsten Bourne Kelly (Tessa Campanelli) and Dan Woods (Mr. Raditch) will all be together to meet their fans.

Toronto ComiCon, the all-ages pop culture convention for fans of comics, sci-fi, horror, anime and gaming, returns to take over the south building of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre from March 17-19.

" 'Degrassi' has had a monumental impact on pop culture in Canada, and there is no better way to celebrate this formative show than to reunite fans with some of their favorite, original cast members at this year's event," said Toronto ComiCon Show Director Andrew Moyes. "With appearances by the 'Degrassi' cast, iconic wrestlers, legendary sci-fi characters and activities for the whole family, this year's show is sure to have something for everyone."

Fans can get their geek on during the three-day show that will be packed with over 400 exhibitors, amazing artists and special guests, including world-renowned wrestling heavyweights Bret Hart and Mick Foley; "Star Trek Voyager" Chief Medical Officer Robert Picardo; the menacing, murderous Sith Lord from "Star Wars Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace," Ray Park; the zombie-fighting Laurie Holden of "The Walking Dead"; "The Big Bang Theory's" mild-mannered comic book store owner Kevin Sussman; "Bones" stars Michaela Conlin and T.J. Thyne; Brett Dalton of "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.EL.D."; and "Gotham" stars David Mazouz and Sean Pertwee.

New this year, the "All Access Family Pass" Toronto ComiCon previously offered on Sunday only will now be available for purchase for each day of the show. The pass is valid for two adults and up to four children ages 6 to 12. Families attending the show can enjoy kid-friendly programming, including a "Family Zone" area with activities for every member of the family.

Toronto ComiCon 2017 will mark the inaugural year of the "Cosplay Craftsmanship Contest," an opportunity for attendees to be recognized for the work put into making their costumes. Each registered cosplayer will be judged on the workmanship of his or her costume, and a winner will be awarded at the end of each day of the show - culminating in the full awards ceremony held on Sunday announcing all of the awards, including "Best in Class" and "Best in Show."
