We've never been more excited to go back to school.

The storm has passed, Degrassi fans, as we can exclusively reveal that season 14 is set to premiere on Tuesday, Oct. 28 at 9 p.m. ET on TeenNick. But that's not all we're revealing as E! News has your exclusive first look at the gang back in action, as well as the rundown on the new cast members joining the show. (With three new freshman coming in, it's almost like it's Degrassi: The Next Next Generation!)

While it doesn't premiere until Tuesday, Sept. 30 at 9 p.m. on TeenNick, we're taking you behind the scenes of Degrassi's latest epic music video promo, which is set to Passion Pit's contemporary cover of the Smashing Pumpkins' classic "Tonight, Tonight."

"We're kind of lost in the forest and there's all these little magical things that all the characters go through," Sarah Fisher, who plays Becky Baker, previews of what fans can expect from the new music video promo.

So are there any clues about the upcoming season in the behind the scenes sneak peek? Well, Drew (Luke Bilyk) is holding hands with someone and Dallas (Demetrius Joyette) and Alli (Melinda Shankar) being adorable. (OK, so that last one isn't a spoiler, but it's still true!) And the music video also features a Degrassi first: drones were used to film the promo for the first time in TeenNick history.

We also get our first look at some of the new faces we'll be meeting in the new season, who you can also check out in the exclusive cast picture above.

Want a rundown of the new cast members enrolling in Degrassi Community School this upcoming season? We've got your covered: 

Amanda Arcuri is set to take on the role of new freshman Lola Pacini, a boy-crazy cheerleader with colorful hair and a vibrant personality. Her two besties? Frankie (Sara Waisglass), Miles' little sister, and fellow newcomer Shay Powers, played by Reiya Downs, who is determined to be one of the school's top athletes. While Shay has high standards when it comes to high school and boys, the only guy she's interested doesn't exactly feel the same way.

Another new freshman? Arlene Takahashi (played by Devyn Nekoda) is the quintessential nerd who can be found reading comics while wearing elf ears...that is when she's not being picked on by the cheerleaders. Finally, there's Jonah Haak, a new grade 11 student played by Ehren Kassam. While he used to be a bit of a troublemaker, Jonah has seen the light and is ready to make new friends who share his strong faith. While he may have given up all his vices, Jonah's kept the rock 'n' roll.

Degrassi returns Tuesday, Oct. 28 at 9 p.m. ET on TeenNick.
