THE WALTONS RETURN TO THE CW NETWORK WITH NEW ORIGINAL HOLIDAY MOVIE “THE WALTONS’ THANKSGIVING”




Last year, the CW aired a remake of the original special, THE WALTONS’ HOMECOMING. According to the press release below, it was ratings success for the network, so it makes sense they are filming a follow-up with THE WALTONS’ THANKSGIVING

Richard Thomas (the original John Boy) is returning once again to narrate this new film.

THE WALTONS RETURN 
TO THE CW NETWORK
WITH NEW ORIGINAL HOLIDAY MOVIE
“THE WALTONS’ THANKSGIVING”

Bellamy Young, Logan Shroyer and Richard Thomas Reprise Their “The Waltons’ Homecoming” Roles, with Teddy Sears Joining the Cast

May 4, 2022 (Burbank, CA) — The CW Network announced today a new, original made-for-television movie THE WALTONS’ THANKSGIVING will debut in the fourth quarter 2022. An exact air date and time will be announced later.

In THE WALTONS’ THANKSGIVING, the holiday spirit is in the air on Walton Mountain in 1934 as the Walton family eagerly prepares for the annual Harvest Festival Fair in town. Carnival rides, talent shows and pie contests come around every year, but at this year’s Harvest Festival Fair, a young boy arrives that will dramatically change the Waltons’ lives in ways that they could have never imagined.

From Warner Bros. Television, THE WALTONS’ THANKSGIVING is a follow-up to The CW’s original television movie THE WALTONS’ HOMECOMING, which was the network’s second most-watched special of the 2021-22 season. THE WALTONS’ HOMECOMING took home a 73rd Annual Christopher Award in Television, Cable and Streaming, as well as two Movie Guide Awards for the Epiphany Prize in Television and star Bellamy Young for the Grace Prize in Television for most inspiring performance of the year. It was also the winner of the Environmental Media Association’s Green Seal Award for implementing sustainable practices and raising environmental awareness.

THE WALTONS’ THANKSGIVING stars Bellamy Young (“Scandal”) as Olivia, Logan Shroyer (“This Is Us”) as John Boy, Teddy Sears (“The Flash”) as John Sr., and Richard Thomas, who originally starred as John Boy Walton in the beloved television series “The Waltons,” as adult John Boy, who narrates the movie. The television movie is produced by Magnolia Hill Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, with Emmy®-winning executive producer Sam Haskell, writer/co-executive producer Jim Strain, co-executive producer Hudson Hickman, producer Billy Levin, and producer Bobby Kelly. Joe Lazarov is the director/co-executive producer and Grammy® winner Tena Clark is the composer. “The Waltons” original series was created by Earl Hamner, Jr.

  3. I didn't see the other one. Hopefully, they ring true to the originals.

  4. I watched 5-10 minutes of the Christmas movie remake. There was quite of few cuss words the kids were really rude to each other, I turned it off after someone said that Mary Ellen wanted breasts for Christmas. It wasn’t the Waltons I remember and I rewatched the whole series a couple of years ago when I was up all night with a newborn.

    1. Yikes, that doesn't sound like the wholesome series from the past, at all. I do recall there is some mischievous behavior in the original Homecoming movie from the 70's, but I don't think it's quite like what you mentioned is in this one. My goodness. I'm so glad you shared this with us - I had no idea about all the cussing. That really is very disappointing.

  5. Happy Mother's Day to all the moms here! I wish TCM was in my bundle.
