Netflix’s latest sitcom will be coming to a library near you in July! With the inevitable end of The Ranch in 2020, Netflix is already looking to the future for new sitcoms. We have all the information you need to know on the upcoming series Family Reunion, including the Netflix release date, plot, cast and trailer.
Family Reunion is an American Netflix Original sitcom series created and written by Meg DeLoatch. The series is the 44th Original comedy series created by Netflix (not including regional exclusives), and with the previous highs and lows of Original comedies on the streaming service, who knows what’s in store for us.
What is the plot of Family Reunion?
The McKellan family moves from Seattle all the way back to Georgia so they can be closer to their extended family. With three-hour church services and humidity hair, the McKellan’s truly are fish out of water but it’s nothing some of M’Dear’s home cooking can’t solve. As the McKellan’s get used to their extended family in the American south there’s a lot to learn about the Georgian way of life.

When did production take place?
Production of Family Reunion took place throughout the Fall of 2018 (October) and didn’t conclude until the 13th of June 2019! Filming likely wouldn’t have taken until June but there would have been a lot of work put into the series such as the marketing and the score.
Where was the series filmed?
Production took place in Los Angeles and like most sitcoms are, filming took place in a studio. Chapman/Leonard Studio Equipment provided some of the tools needed for filming.
How many episodes will Family Reunion debut?
The first season will debut with twenty episodes but only half of them will be available to stream upon release.
This isn’t the first time Netflix has held back episodes for a sitcom. In April Netflix released No Good Nick with ten episodes, the remaining half have yet to be released. The Ranch also follows the same format.
We’re unsure when the next set of episodes will be released but we can expect it to be later this year.
What are the episode run times?
Each episode will be approximately 20 minutes long. This is a typical episode run time for a sitcom.
Has Netflix released a trailer for Family Reunion?
While Netflix has classed it as such, yes, a trailer for Family Reunion has been released!
When is the release date for Family Reunion?
Family Reunion makes its Netflix debut on Wednesday the 10th of July!

There’s no need to worry, all regions with access to Netflix will be able to stream the sitcom.
