Missing ‘This Is Us’? Catch New Takes on ‘The Wonder Years’ & ‘The Waltons’ This Fall
We have to wait until midseason for This Is Us’ farewell run, so picking up the slack goes on the chore wheel for two other series that will strike familiar chords for generations of viewers.
The Wonder Years (ABC)
The Waltons’ Homecoming (The CW)
Fifty years after the TV movie The Homecoming: A Christmas Story launched The Waltons on CBS, a remake, The Waltons’ Homecoming taps This Is Us costar Logan Shroyer as earnest 17-year-old writer John-Boy. (Richard Thomas, John-Boy No. 1, narrates.)
In the movie, set in 1933, a storm threatens the arrival of John Sr. on Christmas Eve, and John-Boy races into the night to find his dad — a journey that will change his life forever.
