'The Andy Griffith Show' reunion movie 'Return to Mayberry' is coming to MeTV on November 21

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

Thanksgiving is the time of year for family and friends to gather together in celebration. What better way to get into the spirit of the Thanksgiving holiday than by paying a visit to 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.

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 sheriff election and… a lake monster!

This timeless MeTV classic is sure to put a smile on our faces and remind us of what we are truly thankful for this time of year — our friends and family.

Join The MeTV Network as it kicks off the holiday season in style with Return to Mayberry on Tuesday, November 21, at 8PM | 7C.
