Earl Hamner Jr., creator of the series about a family enduring the Depression in rural Virginia, will attend, as will thesps Ralph Waite, Jon Walmsley, Judy Norton, Eric Scott, Mary McDonough and David Harper.

A slew of actors who guested on “Waltons” are also skedded to attend, including Jonathan Frakes, Florence Henderson, Marla Gibbs, Gerald McRaney and — fresh from dying on “Breaking Bad” — Jonathan Banks.
