Viewers partake in many joyous celebrations with the loveable Walton's clan, during the sixth season of this poignant classic series. John Boy (Richard Thomas) comes home from New York, participates in the re-opening of the old Guthrie mine, and also proposes to Daisy Garner (Deirdre Lenihan). Another significant homecoming is that of Grandma Esther (Ellen Corby), who is finally released from the hospital into the care of her loving family. The Walton's welcome a new addition to the family when Mary Ellen (Judy Norton-Taylor) and Curt (Tom Bower) have a baby boy named John Curtis. John and Olivia celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary and John discovers the family is nearly out of their debt. But the joy is fleeting when it's set against the tragedy of events in the outside world. As the fall of 1939 turns into the spring of 1940, war rages in Europe and the Waltons are soon caught in its chilling grasp. Curt is called up for duty and soldiers train on Walton property. The first local enlistee dies. British children flee the Blitz for the safety of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The Depression may finally be ending but even tougher times lay ahead.
For 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. Share the final good night with The Waltons.
In Season Three, John-Boy heads off to college - and life will never be the same. Change has come to Walton's Mountain.

Both topical and timeless, the third season sees the Waltons facing the age-old issues of family: holding children close and letting them go, doing without and making do.
In the dire days of the Depression, a Virginia family stays together in this beloved and wholesome saga, seen through the eyes of John-Boy (Richard Thomas), the eldest of seven children. In season one, John-Boy saves his father's life; beloved mother Olivia copes with polio; and the Walton family bond endures a variety of other trials.
