The Family Reunion Special sounds like they may take a cue from Barker's Truth or Consequences. Could require a box of Kleenex if they do.
How would they do that?  Have every person that comes up on stage be reunited with someone (and keep in mind that a lot of the reunions were surprise returns from active duty of military personnel stationed overseas), and then tell the three that didn't make it up, "Sorry, but your long-distant relatives are being sent back home without meeting you"?

I assume it will be more along the lines of, families (2-3 adults, presumably) who normally live quite a distance apart will be contestants together (as a "team").  Expect at least one "family reunion vacation" to be a prize.

They had a family reunion Christmas Week episode in season 45. It was just family members playing - notably, a grandmother and two granddaughters who won Triple Play.
There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone.

Drew's 2,000th show happened back on February 13, so no.

How would they do that? 

They already screen test contestants around the country, so it wouldn't difficult to find a family or two with a serviceman serving overseas, stick 'em behind the Big Doors at the right moment, and have them model a car. If Ellen can pull it off, so can Price.

And then none of those particular families get onstage. What then, hm?
The above is my opinion and mine alone.

Why would it be necessary for them to win their way on stage? Being reunited with a family member they probably haven't seen in over at year or two seems like prize enough.

I do not disagree with the latter sentence, but you said to have the serviceman "model a car", which is generally not offered for One-Bids. To have a reunion where the serviceman is modeling a car for a pricing game and their family is still in Contestant's Row would seem rather awkward to me, and I would instead have the serviceman model the One-Bid prize immediately after their family is called down.

The man who gave Bob Barker his big break used to do surprise reunions all the time. I'd say Price isn't Ellen, Ellen can straight up rig who she wants to call up for whatever at her show because whatever game they're going to play isn't important and only serves as a framing device. Price is a game show. I think the idea of maybe choosing a family or two and springing a surprise on them either if they made it on stage or, if they didn't, before SCSD2 could be plausible though.

That said, I agree that, more than likely, by "Family Reunion" they mean they'll have two or more generations represented in pairs, trios or more.

Went to the first taping of Season 47 a couple of weeks ago (as well as the 3rd and 5th) and it was pretty fun. Standard shows, but each one has a little surprise that I and my friends weren't expecting. I'd say the only real changes to the show are that the square in back of the center audience section has changed to blue with a yellow border around a dollar sign and a new pull apart for the IUFB reveal. It looks like a cut out of the hexagons on homebase with three layers of colors (yellow, green and blue?) surrounding a dollar sign.

...no?

The 9,000th show isn't until June 7.  There's plenty of time between then and now for them to change something.

No, it isn't.  Where did you even come up with that?
