TV Land is bringing back WB’s High School Reunion

The WB is no more, nor is its reality series High School Reunion, which reunited people who used to go to high school together (even if, in some cases, they weren’t all members of the same graduating class). Its third and final season debuted two years ago this December.

Buried inside a TV Land press release from this week was a single paragraph that says the show is getting new life on the cable network. TV Land will debut a new season of the show (its fourth) next summer. There will be one-hour episodes, but it isn’t clear how many have been ordered.

The network says the show “finds former classmates and brings them back together 20 years later to pursue unresolved relationships, romance and rivalries.” The new season will be produced by Mike Fleiss and his production company, Next Entertainment.
