'The Andy Griffith Show' reunion movie 'Return to Mayberry' is coming to MeTV on May 31

Catch up with Andy, Opie, Barney and the gang in this charming 1986 TV movie.

What better way to kick off summer than a family reunion in America's favorite fictional hometown of Mayberry. Beloved Sheriff Andy Taylor travels home in Return to Mayberry, for a fun-filled visit with Opie, Barney, Gomer, Goober, Ernest T. Bass and the rest of the memorable Mayberry gang.

Join MeTV as we wrap up The Month of Mayberry in style with Return to Mayberry on Sunday, May 31, at 5PM | 4C.

Sixteen of the original cast members reunited in 1986, including Andy Griffith, Don Knotts, Ron Howard, Jim Nabors and George Lindsey, for what proved to be the highest-rated TV movie of the year.

In the mid-'80s, Andy Taylor was working as a U.S. Postal Inspector in Cleveland. Opie was a father-to-be. Barney was sheriff. Well, for the time being. The plot centers around the local sheriff election and… a lake monster!

This timeless MeTV classic is sure to put a smile on our faces and remind us of what matters most — our family and friends.


Watch The Andy Griffith Show on MeTV!

Weeknights at 8 PM & 8:30 PM

Is Aunt Bee in the reunion? I never saw it and can’t wait to see this episode on Sunday.

No she wasn’t. They showed Andy at her grave site. I think she had passed already when they made this reunion.

Does anyone know how to get this app to work. So far I can’t get any help from the support team. I have installed and uninstalled, did everything and no luck.

Anyone remember the episode where Barney shows up at Andy's house,wearing that stupid tweed jacket and bow tie;Barney sticks his head in the door and says,"Hey,Ang,wanna go down to the filling station and grab a bottle of pop"?I don't know what season this particular scene I'm remembering is from,but it never seems to air anymore.Also,anyone remember the commercial Andy Griffith(as Andy Taylor)made for Ritz Crackers(that ran at the end of each episode(again,don't know what season)where Andy would do his pitch for Ritz Crackers.Andy would take a bite of Ritz Cracker and then say "GOOOODDDD CRACKER!Ah appreciate it and GOOD NIGHT!"

I remember the Ritz ad but I thought it was in the 70s not during TAGS.

Absolutely lov this movie, it's a tear jerker for sure!
It was painfully lame but I loved it!
Makes you realize how there's no way they could be dead. Seeing them in old age is heart breaking. But cute movie!
