Family Reunion will return for its final season on Netflix. The multi-camera sitcom is currently in production. While it’s technically the show’s third season, due to the way the show releases onto Netflix, we’ll be referring to it as the fifth season. Here’s what we know so far.
The series was created by Meg DeLoatch and debuted on Netflix in July 2019. It has since been distributed over 5 episodes (one being a Christmas special), with the latest 7 episodes arriving in August 2021. Family Reunion won a variety of awards, including Primetime Emmy nominations.
