Banijay Finland is Taking Celebrities Back to School for MTV3

12 June, 2019

Banijay Finland, a Banijay Group company, today announces it is producing a new local version of Big Class Reunion. The new series will air in Autumn 2019 on MTV3.


Hosted by Marja Hintikka, the entertainment show invites well-known actors, musicians, athletes and entertainment stars to share anecdotes about their school experiences. With their childhood friends by their side, they re-tell their good and bad memories ranging from the songs they listened to, to their first crushes and the embarrassing moments they would rather forget. Transported back in time, they are then forced to re-take the school tests they took years before. Who will remember the correct maths formula, the right grammar rule or the accurate historical figure? The pressure is on as only one team will win this quiz and be crowned the champions!


Big Class Reunion promises laughs, insights into your favourite stars’ childhoods and shines the spotlight on their knowledge and competitive streak.


Marja Hintikka, Show Presenter comments: “School memories are enjoyed by everyone. While they may not always be good, we can certainly all identify with them and as such, this theme is perfect as the basis of a format. Offering lots of fun, unprecedented archival treasures, and completely new stories from familiar faces, this show has something for everyone.”


Tatu Ferchen, CEO, Banijay Finland: Big Class Reunion has travelled and performed well across the Banijay footprint and we could not be happier to be putting our own spin on it for audiences in Finland. With school memories at the core of the show, we have no doubt the show will resonate with all that tune in.”
