SCHUYLER, Va. (AP) — Fifteen former cast members of the hit TV show “The Waltons” are returning to Virginia for a reunion weekend.
The Nelson County Times reports the Waltons Mountain Museum in Schuyler will host the 45th anniversary reunion later this month. The events are also planned to coincide with the one-year anniversary of the death of the show’s creator, Earl Hamner Jr.
Hamner, a Schuyler native and prolific writer, died in March 2016 at age 92.
“The Waltons,” which aired for nine seasons, drew upon his Depression-era upbringing. It won more than a dozen Emmys.
Among the 15 cast members returning for the events is Michael Learned, who played Olivia Walton.
Events will include autograph signings, a screening of a documentary and a memorial service for Hamner.
