TV Land is going back to high school for its junior year.
The network has picked up reality series High School Reunion for a third campaign, with eight episodes set to begin airing in the third quarter as part of its TV Prime programming block.
The sophomore season, focusing on Las Vegas' Chaparral High School's class of 1989 and their reunion in Kauai, will air its finale April 8. Thus far, the second season has averaged 833,000 total viewers, with a median age of 45, according to Nielsen Media Research data. The show has averaged 554,000 viewers 25 to 54 and 343,000 40-to-54-year-old watchers.
"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," said Larry Jones, president, TV Land, in a statement. "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."
