The Reunion to premiere on ITVX
April 6, 2022
ITV has acquired The Reunion to premiere on ITVX later this year. The six-episode drama series from MGM will then air on ITV’s linear channels in 2023.
The French Riviera-set series is adapted from Guillaume Musso’s bestselling novel La Jeune Fille et la Nuit, and started shooting on location in the south of France in summer 2021 with an international cast headlined by Ioan Gruffudd, Ivanna Sakhno, Grégory Fitoussi and Rupert Graves.
Directed by Bill Eagles, the English-language series is produced by Make It Happen Studio, co-produced with the European Alliance (France Televisions, RAI, ZDF) and presented by MGM International Television Productions with MGM handling distribution.
The story opens in the present day, at a high school reunion in the south of France where three former friends reconnect. They grew apart and lost touch, but they are still bound by a tragic secret tied to the disappearance of a high school girl who went missing 25 years ago in the region.
ITV’s Head of Content Acquisitions, Sasha Breslau, commented: “The Reunion is a hotly anticipated, high calibre production and we can’t wait to share it with ITVX viewers this autumn.”
