NOTE: This article is 1 year old and may not include the most recent information.

The trailer for The CW’s holiday movie event ‘The Waltons’ Homecong’ is here. The revival of the wholesome family filled with faith and love is set to premiere on the network on November 28 at 8/7c. The special will then be made available to stream for free on The CW app the following day.

Executive Produced by Sam Haskell and Magnolia Hill Productions, this marks the first television movie special for The CW network.

Richard Thomas who was in the original series as John Boy Walton from 1972-81 will serve as the narrator for this revival which Haskell hopes may be turned into more future movies or possibly even a series.

The Waltons: Homecoming is set in the Depression Era and told through the eyes of John Boy, the 17-year-old eldest child of John (Ben Lawson) and Olivia Walton (Bellamy Young). His mother expects him to help her raise his sisters and brothers, and his father expects him to follow in his footsteps to help support the family, but secretly, John Boy wants to be a writer.

Times are hard enough in 1933, but to make matters worse, it looked like it was going to be the Waltons’ first Christmas without John Sr. But then Olivia receives a letter that John Sr. is planning to make it home for Christmas after all, the family is thrilled and races to prepare for his homecoming. But when a storm threatens his arrival on Christmas Eve, and John Sr. is nowhere to be found, Olivia sends John Boy out into the night to find his daddy – a journey that will change his life forever.
