Los Angeles, CA — April 7, 2009 – TV Land announced today that it has picked up its successful reality series “High School Reunion” for a third season. Over 1 million people have been watching the current season, which airs its final episode on April 8. Now viewers can tune in as Las Vegas’ Chaparral High School’s Class of 1989 will experience a reunion like no other. Set on the garden isle of Kauai, the classmates of Chaparral — some of whom haven’t seen each other in over twenty years — will have the unique opportunity to finally settle a score, find new love or rekindle an old flame and reconnect during this luxurious getaway. “High School Reunion” is produced for TV Land by Mike Fleiss (“The Bachelor”) through his NEXT Entertainment production company in association with Warner Horizon Television. “High School Reunion” is set to debut its third season, with eight episodes, in the third quarter of 2009, on TV Land during TV Land PRIME, the network’s primetime destination block.
“We are so happy that ‘High School Reunion’ continues to resonate with our viewers and remains one of TV Land’s most popular original series,” states Larry W. Jones, president, TV Land. “Viewers can’t get enough of the drama and romance that comes when these classmates share their emotional and intimate stories from high school and everything else in between. The characters and storylines are not only entertaining, but the show is so compelling that it’s not surprising that our audience of 40-somethings has been glued to their screens. We can’t wait to see what drama unfolds with this new class, making great television.”
“We’re thrilled to be doing another season of ‘High School Reunion’ for the good people of TV Land!” said Mike Fleiss.
