In Season Three, John-Boy heads off to college – and life will never be the same on Walton’s Mountain. When scholarship winner John-Boy enters Boatwright University, Jason takes his big brother’s place as head kid wrangler for the Walton brood while finding his own identity in music. And while John and Olivia celebrate twenty years of marriage, Grandpa and Grandma leave home (but return). Change has come to Walton’s Mountain. But one thing will never change: the powerful family bond that keeps the Waltons forever together. 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.
