The WaltonsFor nine seasons from 1972 to 1981, the Walton family was America’s family. Viewers’ hearts were captured by the story of John and Olivia Walton, their seven children, Grandpa and Grandma as they faced the Depression and World War II with not much more than a love of the land and the rock-solid support of each other.

This elegiac final season is the ideal capstone to the Emmy-honored and lovingly remembered series. The Walton boys endure terrifying dangers in Europe and the Pacific, then gratefully return to Walton’s Mountain when the war ends. Peace brings new challenges, but also new beginnings and – for many of the family, young and old – new love. Fans will be delighted to share the final good night with The Waltons.
