TV show description:      
This family drama series focuses on the lives of Reverend Eric Camden (Stephen Collins), his wife Annie (Catherine Hicks) and their seven children.

The Camden kids include Matt (Barry Watson), Mary (Jessica Biel), Lucy (Beverley Mitchell), Simon (David Gallagher), Ruthie (Mackenzie Rosman) and twins David (Lorenzo Brino) and Sam (Nikolas Brino).

As the kids grow up and leave the household, the series cast expands to include friends and extended family members. Each episode typically touches on a moral lesson or controversial theme.

Series Finale:     

Episode 243 — And Away We Go
To celebrate Eric’s clean bill of health, he and Annie receive a “Got Well” gift from the Colonel — an RV. They aptly name it “7th Heaven” and decide to put it to good use. They make plans to get away and see the country.

But Lucy and Kevin are uncertain about leaving the congregation behind as well as the offer to move to Crossroads. Meanwhile, Jane, Margaret and Mac are very thankful for all that Eric has done for them. They want to join him and Annie on their trip. Eventually, Lucy and Kevin realize that their place is with the family and climb aboard.

In the show’s final moments, an RV full of Camdens, their extended family, and a mysterious stranger (possibly God?) head out to see America.
First aired: May 13, 2007.

Behind the Scenes

The series was going to be cancelled at the end of season 10. But, when the WB network looked at the show’s ratings for the year, including the very successful last episode of the season, they decided to bring it back for another year on the new CW network. Due to budget cost-cutting, not all of the actors appeared in every episode of season 11.
The season 10 finale featured a wedding ceremony and a reunion of the original Camden family. The actual series finale didn’t have any special reunions or appearances. Of the two, Collins prefers the latter.
Collins, Hicks, Mitchell, Rosman and Happy the dog are the only ones to appear in all 11 seasons of the series.
Collins and Mitchell are the only two castmembers who appeared in every episode of the show.

    they should have put the shows reruns on in the evening because adults are working and the kids are at school during the day

    The entire cast proved to be fantastic actors. I can’t say that one over acted or didn’t act enough. Every one of them played an enjoyable part well. I loved the show and miss it dearly. As they say “All good things come to an end” but this was the best.
    Stephen, I don’t care what they say, you’ll always be famous in my world. You’re the greatest. Down with Universal and State of Play.

    I wish they would come up with a new season of 7th Heaven. This show is my all time favorite and I miss not being able to watch. When I watch the show I have learned so many lessons. I feel it is a good show for young adults to watch. We as a community have gotten such a good feeling and morals from this show. Please make us happy by having a new season of 7th Heaven.
