7th Heaven: Camdens Say Goodbye? Maybe Not!

The Camden Family of Seventh HeavenThough the WB has been promoting this season of 7th Heaven as the series’ last since November 2005, the Camden family may not be ready for the TV afterlife just yet.

With the upcoming CW’s fall schedule still under wraps and undecided, there have been discussions about family drama 7th Heaven returning for an 11th season. Castmembers Stephen Collins, Catherine Hicks, Beverley Mitchell and George Stults have all reportedly been asked if they would be open to returning for another season.

No financial offers have been made but the new network is probably holding off making a final decision on the fate of the WB’s longest-running series until execs make final decisions on the four dramatic pilots that they have in development. The CW will be looking to fill over a dozen hours of primetime each week and up to 10 hours of that will come from shows currently on either the WB or UPN.

Though many have said that the long-running family drama is ready to say goodbye, it should be noted that the show usually draws over 5 million viewers each week. By that account it’s the most popular show on either the UPN or the WB networks. It is also a very expensive series to produce which was been the primary reason sited for the cancellation. As is the norm, talent salaries usually increase as a series goes on and Heaven has a particularly large cast.

The final two episodes of this season (and possibly of the series) will air on May 1st and May 8th. They will focus on Rose and Simon’s wedding day and will be filled with flashbacks from episodes past and will feature appearances by moved-out siblings Matt and Mary (former castmates Barry Watson and Jessica Biel).

A “Camden kids” spin-off had been discussed awhile back but a pilot was never produced utilizing that concept. The CW’s schedule is expected to be announced in late May. TV Series Finale home page

    7th Heaven is the very best show on TV. It needs to stay on for one more year. If the CW does not bring 7th Heaven back on the fall schedule I will never watch the CW station.
