After Family Reunion Season 1 premiered on Netflix in July 2019, fans hoped that Season 2 would also premiere in Jully 2020. But the coronavirus pandemic that started in March — Season 1, Part 2 dropped on Netflix in January — has delayed the return of the comedy series for Season 2.

What is Family Reunion about?
Family Reunion follows the McKellan family, who moved from Seattle, Washington to Georgia to reunite with their extended family. But what was meant to be a happy reunion became filled with awkward moments for the family as they struggled to adapt to the southern culture and the generational gaps.
Family Reunion Season 2 plot
Family Reunion Season 1, Part 1 ended after M’Dear introduced Jade to a new boy in town named Kurt. M’Dear asked Jade to show the boy around and although Jade was reluctant at first, she later struck up a friendship with Kurt. The two spent time hanging out together and it led to an awkward confrontation with Drew (Noah Alexander Gerry) who she was dating.
Mazzi and Shaka had an unpleasant encounter with the police, and shortly afterward, the same cop pulled Moz over. The incident led Cocoa to fear for their safety and she wondered whether to move her family back to Seattle or stay in Georgia.
In the Family Reunion Season 1, Part 2 finale, titled Remember When the Party Was Over?, Jade celebrated her 15th birthday with a masquerade party, while Moz and Cocoa had a reality check about their finances.
Netflix has not yet shared information about what to expect of the upcoming season, so fans will have to wait until Season 2 arrives to find out what is next for the McKellans.
Season 1 of Family Reunion is currently streaming on Netflix.
