WB’s High School Reunion returning.

WB’s High School Reunion returning.
The franchise that is The WB’s High School Reunion will continue in December with High School Reunion: Fort Lauderdale. The series will feature “from three graduating classes of Cardinal Gibbons High School, a private Catholic school,” in addition to “five star athletes from rival Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.” This season completed production at the beginning of this year, and was originally intended to focus on Round Rock High School in Texas, the school whose graduates became the subject of the second season. “Interestingly, The WB went for a sort of surprise/ambush approach with this season, as its press release says that “none of the participants knew that the reunion would take place on Oahu or which of their former classmates would be invited to attend.” The series debuts at 9 p.m. ET on December 7.
