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

I have been watching 7th Heaven since the beginning. It is a great show and also a show that young children can watch. I am sad to hear that you are going to cancel it. I hope you will reconsider this decision. It is one of my all time favorite.

Seventh Heaven is a clean cut show, It is good for all the family to watch,. why take it off when it is going so well. we need more clean shows for kids to watch, with all the trash thats on tv now days. when we get a good clean show they want to take it off. can’t
understand this.

I guess I saw this show as a bit of a guilty pleasure – something I’d watch on occasion but was too saccharine for my husband. Still it is a shame to lose one of the few adult shows I like that doesn’t air sex, violence or swearing I don’t want my kids to repeat.

The song seemed very fitting for the closing scene. I believe that version of the song “I’ll Fly Away” is the version from the “O Brother Where Art There” soundtrack, performed by Gillian Welch and Alison Krauss.

Was flipping through the channels on Sunday morning and saw an advertisement for the season finale for Seventh Heaven. My daughter and I watched this show on the WB since it started, every Monday night. We were said last year when it ended and had no idea that CW31 picked it up this year!! I was very surprised and tuned in for the season finale. I bet there are alot of Seventh Heaven fans that had no idea your station had brought back one of the best shows around. I was saddened to hear that you will be cancelling it also. Maybe some more marketing would help to bring more viewers, as I said I was not aware that it was on this past season or I would have watched. I do not ususally watch the CW, unless I spot something on the guide when I am searching. PLEASE DON’T CANCEL THIS SHOW AGAIN. I am anxious to see the reruns for this past season, can you tell me when they will air?
Thank you

PLEASE PLEASE DON’T TAKE MY SHOW OFF! I HAVE WATCHED EVERY SINGLE EPISODE AND EVEN GOT MY MOM TO WATCH IT. SHE LOVES IT AS MUCH AS I DO. IT IS THE BEST FAMILY SHOW AROUND. I AGREE WITH THE OTHERS, WHY IS IT THAT ALL THESE GARBAGE SHOWS HAVE STAYED ON THE AIR, BUT A GREAT SHOW LIKE THIS GETS CANCELED? PLEASE BRING IT BACK, YOU BROUGHT IT BACK THIS YR. BECAUSE OF VIEWERS LIKE ALL OF US, SO WHY CAN’T YOU AGAIN? THERE IS SO MUCH MORE THAT YOU CAN DO WITH THE SHOW, I KNOW MATT HAS HIS OWN SHOW NOW, AND MARY HAS MOVED ON, BUT YOU STILL HAVE THE TWINS, AND LUCY AND KEVIN, SAVANNAH, RUTHIE, AND MARGARET, T BONE, JANE, AND MARTIN, SANDY AND AARON. WHAT ABOUT ALL OF THEM? WE WANT TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS TO THEM. SANDY IS GETTING MARRIED AND RUTHIE IS IN LOVE, THERE IS SOOO MUCH MORE YOU CAN DO FOR THIS SHOW. PLEASE CONSIDER IT.

I would like to know who sung I’ll Fly Away in the final show and what significance was Stanley who left with them in the RV?

My daughter and I LOVE 7th heaven and were almost in tears watching the last episode! In today’s world, this series is like a breath of fresh air, especially when you hold it up next to other tv shows. We would be so excited if the cw would change their minds and bring this series back.
