7th Heaven: Time to Say Goodbye, Yet Again

Will the family reunite for a 7th Heaven farewell?Last May, most felt that the Camdens had a true guardian angel watching over them. 7th Heaven was cancelled early in it its 10th season and the WB had promoting the final episodes for months. The WB aired the final episode and viewers said a tearful goodbye. Then the ratings came in. As a result, the cancellation decision was reversed and the series made the transition to the new CW network, albeit with a smaller budget. Now a year later, it looks like the guardian angel may have left them on their own.

Word is leaking out that the CW has cancelled the family drama after 11 seasons. The producers, cast and crew were reportedly told of the cancellation earlier today.

It actually comes as little surprise. The ratings for 7th Heaven haven’t been anything to write home about. At its highest, the series attracted 4.5 million viewers back in November when the sitcom Reba returned (since cancelled). Heaven’s usual viewership is much lower. Though the series budget is probably a reasonable one (with budget cuts and a smaller cast), the show’s weak attraction of the CW’s key demographic most assuredly doomed it.

The series finale will air on Sunday, May 13th in its regular 8pm timeslot. The hour-long episode will be entitled “And Away We Go.” Could a well-publicized finale create a repeat of last year’s last minute reprieve? I highly doubt it but you never know. Those Camdens have a track record of divine intervention. Stay tuned! TV Series Finale home page
