‘Brady Bunch’ Finds Time For Reunions
The popular series The Brady Bunch may have come to an end in 1974. However, the Brady family has come back together often over the years through a variety of well-received reunion specials.
In fact, Christopher Knight and four of his original Brady Bunch costars came back together this holiday season in the Lifetime movie Blending Christmas.
Along with Knight, the other Brady Bunch cast members who reunited for Blending Christmas were Mike Lookinland, Barry Williams, Susan Olsen, and Robbie Rist.
The hit Lifetime holiday film also features a variety of cast members from many other iconic television shows and movies. This, of course, brought a sense of nostalgia for Lifetime movie watchers.
Even Knight was feeling some of that Brady Bunch nostalgia!
During a recent interview with Yahoo, Christopher Knight shares how some of his favorite memories of his time playing Peter Brady come from the various Brady Bunch Christmas specials.
“It wasn’t the holiday season, but it became the holiday season on set,” Christopher Knight says of the holiday shows.
“It was just a beautiful experience,” the Peter Brady star adds. “Even though it wasn’t Christmas, it was the best Christmas.”
Knight goes on to note that one of the things he liked best about this experience was the fact that it allowed him to celebrate the holiday with his on-set family.
“We got to experience it with each other,” Knight says of the special.
“We had two families,” the actor adds.
“I experienced Barry [Williams] as a brother. He’s certainly a friend, but he was also a brother,” the star explains. “That warmth and that feeling that you see when you watch the show was there… and somewhat missing from my own family. I remember that every Christmas.”
