Cast And Crew Talk The Waltons’ Homecoming And The Perfect Timing For The New Holiday Movie

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

The CW Network will air its first-ever original made-for-television movie. A revival of The Waltons. Airing November 28th the cast and crew discuss the timing of the release of the new special and how viewers can relate to the story regardless if it is set in the 1930s. The movie is executive produced by Sam Haskell and Magnolia Hill Productions. Check out the behind-the-scenes interview in the video above.

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.
