Edgemont was a Canadian television drama series created by Ian Weir and produced by CBC. The show ran for five seasons, from 2000 to 2005, and followed the lives of a group of teenagers and their families living in the suburban town of Edgemont. Set in the fictional town of Edgemont, the show focused on the lives of four high school students: Mark (Dominic Zamprogna), Laurel (Kristin Kreuk), Jennifer (Sarah Lind), and Chris (Micah Gardener). Each episode explored their struggles with adolescence, family relationships, and the challenges of navigating their way through high school.

The show's cast portrayed a diverse group of characters, with each episode delving into their personal lives and experiences. Grace Park played Shannon, the popular and confident cheerleader who always seemed to have it all together. Vanessa King played Ashley, a troubled and rebellious teenager who struggled with addiction and family issues.

Throughout the series, the characters tackled a range of topics including love, friendship, bullying, drug addiction, teen pregnancy, and abuse. The show received praise for its realistic portrayal of teenage life and its exploration of complex issues faced by young people.

One of the standout storylines of the series was the romance between Mark and Laurel. Their relationship was not without its challenges, with the two characters having to navigate their own personal issues and the opinions of their friends and families. Kristin Kreuk's portrayal of Laurel was particularly captivating, as she dealt with issues such as her parents' divorce and her own struggles with self-confidence.

Another notable aspect of the show was its exploration of family dynamics. Mark's relationship with his father was a recurring storyline throughout the series, as was Jennifer's strained relationship with her mother. These relationships were portrayed in a realistic and nuanced way, giving the show an added layer of depth.

Despite its serious themes, Edgemont also had moments of humor and levity. The show tackled issues in a way that felt realistic but not overly heavy-handed, balancing the realities of adolescence with moments of hope and optimism.

Overall, Edgemont was a well-written and well-acted series that explored the complexities of teenage life in a suburban town. The show's diverse cast of characters and thoughtful exploration of social issues made it a standout among other teen dramas of its era.

Edgemont is a series that is currently running and has 5 seasons (70 episodes). The series first aired on January 4, 2001.
