It's a Reunion of The Waltons... as cast members Michael Learned (Olivia), Richard Thomas (John Boy), Judy Norton (Mary Ellen), Mary McDonough (Erin), and Kami Cotler (Elizabeth) from this popular family drama series are welcomed into the "Home and Family" home for a heartwarming visit, to reminisce and share memories on Monday, August 3, 2015 @10 AM/9c. on the Hallmark Channel.

"The reunion includes Thomas baking a pie with “Home & Family” host Cristina Ferrare, Norton singing a song as tribute to the “Waltons” actors who have passed away and Cotler demonstrating a “Waltons”-era do-it-yourself craft.
Learned will also take viewers on a tour of the theater founded by Will Geer (Grandpa Walton) — the Theatricum Botanicum in Topanga, Calif. — with Debbie Matenopoulos. The reunion’s opening and closing segments will be narrated by “The Waltons” creator and narrator, Earl Hamner, now 92 years old."
As a long-time devoted fan of this well-loved series, I am delighted to see these 5 Walton family members come together for this special get together of sharing memories. The Home & Family show is also wonderful about emphasizing and recreating special moments from the shows they highlight - so I look forward to seeing how they give tribute to The Waltons! It would be wonderful to see them all around the dinner table, again... but, I can almost guarantee it will end with everyone saying "Goodnight"!
