TV Land has announced it has renewed its High School Reunion revival for a second season, which is currently scheduled to debut in early 2009.

High School Reunion originally aired three seasons on the now-defunct The WB in 2003 and 2004 before TV Land announced in November 2006 that it was reviving the reality series and subsequently began production on it last spring.

It premiered last month and its first four episodes have averaged 767,000 total viewers -- a 14% increase of over TV Land's channel average -- with a median age of 46-years-old.  In the Adults 25-54 demographic, High School Reunion's first four episodes have posted a 0.4 rating, as well as a 0.5 rating among Adults 40-54

"TV Land viewers can't get enough of High School Reunion," said TV Land president Larry W. Jones.  "The show continues to build a new audience for TV Land and create buzz. We can't wait to introduce our viewers to a new reunited class as they reconnect with old friends and forge new relationships to make great television."

High School Reunion's second season will follow a similar format to the show's currently airing installment -- brining high school alumni together for a two-week 20-year reunion at an exotic vacation getaway.

"I'm thrilled that High School Reunion connected with viewers in such a big way," said creator and executive producer Mike Fleiss.  "I'm also very excited to be doing the show again with my friends at TV Land."
