Nine years after leaving our screens in American Wedding, the original cast of the American Pie series return for one final outing in the reunion we have all been waiting for.
More than a decade after graduating from high school, Jim (Biggs), Oz (Klein), Kevin (Nicholas), Paul (Thomas) and Stifler (Scott) have gone their separate ways. However when the gang return to East Great Falls for their school reunion for one long and overdue weekend, they soon discover how each other’s lives have changed since the summer of 1999 when the quest to lose their virginity begun.
In the years that have passed, we learn that Jim and Michelle (Hannigan) are now parents, while Heather (Suvari) and Oz and Kevin and Vicky (Reid) grew apart. As for Finch, he still longs for Stifler’s mum, and Stifler himself now works as a temp at an investment firm.
What is set to be one of the summer’s most anticipated-and humorous-slices of nostalgia, American Reunion promises to give the series one well deserved final send off-in traditional apple pie style.
