The Waltons' Homecoming

CW | 8:00 pm

Commemorating the 1971 premiere of "The Homecoming: A Christmas Story," the TV movie that launched the long-running drama series "The Waltons," this remake of that Depression-era story takes place on Christmas Eve 1933, as a heavy winter storm threatens to keep patriarch John Walton Sr. (Ben Lawson) from getting home to wife Olivia (Bellamy Young) and his large family. Logan Shroyer ("This Is Us") plays eldest son John-Boy; Marcelle LeBlanc, Christian Finlayson, Tatum Matthews and Samuel Goergen co-star; Richard Thomas narrates.
