Welcome to the reunion of the Class of 1999 from East Great Falls High. InthecomedyAmericanReunion, all the American Pie characters we met a little more than a decade ago return for their high-school reunion. In one long-overdue weekend, they will discover what has changed, who hasn't and that time and distance can't break the bonds of friendship.

It was summer 1999 when four small-town Michigan boys began a quest to lose their virginity. In the years that have passed, Jim (JASON BIGGS) and Michelle (ALYSON HANNIGAN) married while Kevin (THOMAS IAN NICHOLAS) and Vicky (TARA REID) said goodbye. Oz (CHRIS KLEIN) and Heather (MENA SUVARI) grew apart, but Finch (EDDIE KAY THOMAS) still longs for Stifler's Mom (JENNIFER COOLIDGE). And Stifler (SEANN WILLIAM SCOTT) remains the same as he ever was. Now these lifelong friends have come home as adults to reminisce about— and get inspired by—the hormonal teens they were.

Completing the core group returning for the long-awaited American Reunion are comedy legend EUGENE LEVY as Jim's Dad, NATASHA

LYONNE as the sexually-wise Jessica, JOHN CHO and JUSTIN ISFELD as the world's biggest MILF enthusiasts, CHRIS OWEN as The Shermanator and SHANNON ELIZABETH as Jim's first on-screen tryst, Nadia.

They are joined by a supporting group of actors new to the series: DANIA RAMIREZ as Selena, the East Great Falls ugly duckling whom no one thought would become so gorgeous; KATRINA BOWDEN as Mia, Oz's vapid model girlfriend; CHAD OCHOCINCO as himself, playing Oz's on-air co-host; JAY HARRINGTON as Dr. Ron, Heather's pompous cardiologist boyfriend; ALI COBRIN as Kara, Jim's sexy next-door neighbor; and CHUCK HITTINGER as AJ, Kara's idiot boyfriend.

American Reunion is written and directed by JON HURWITZ & HAYDEN SCHLOSSBERG (Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay), based on characters created by ADAM HERZ (American Wedding). The comedy is once again produced by CRAIG PERRY (American Pie series), WARREN ZIDE (American Pie series), CHRIS MOORE (American Pie series) and Adam Herz.

Leading American Reunion's behind-the­scenes team are director of photography DARYN OKADA (Mean Girls, Baby Mama), production designer WILLIAM ARNOLD (Magnolia, Last Holiday), editor JEFF BETANCOURT (Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle, The Grudge), costume designer MONA MAY (Enchanted, The House Bunny) and composer LYLE WORKMAN (For getting Sarah Marshall, The 40-Year-Old Virgin).

Executive producers for the comedy are LOUIS G. FRIEDMAN (American Wedding), PAUL WEITZ (American Pie) and CHRIS WEITZ (A Better Life), Seann William Scott and Jason Biggs.
