The Waltons are back!

In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of ‘The Homecoming: A Christmas Story’, a new TV film titled ‘The Waltons’ Homecoming’ has premiered on the US channel, The CW.

In 1971, audiences were first introduced to ‘The Waltons’, resulting in nine successful seasons of the family drama.

Richard Thomas, who starred as the original John-Boy Walton, narrates the new movie, replacing the late Earl Hamner Jr.

‘The Waltons’ Homecoming’ is being described as a “wholesome and heart-warming holiday movie that highlights the importance of family and kindness”.

Aussie Ben Lawson stars as patriarch John Walton Sr. alongside Bellamy Young as his wife Olivia and Logan Shroyer as John Boy.


There’s no word if this may screen in Australia as yet.
