What started off as the story of Sean and Claudia Finnerty, young parents trying to cope with raising a family, has come a long way since Grounded for Life first aired. The family has grown up, and with growing up comes changes...

So where are they all now? Sean and his brother Eddie have quit their day jobs and opened a pub (Eddie thought is was so they could burn it down for the insurance, but turns out Sean actually wants to make it work).

Claudia has decided that she's put her life on hold for the family for long enough now. Lily is as boy-crazy as ever. Jimmy is entering his teens.

And Henry? Well, Henry is still getting away with just about everything...
