Synopsis

From Spelling Television and Brenda Hampton comes 7th Heaven, a critically acclaimed family drama about a minister, his wife and their seven children.

The WB's highest-rated series, 7th Heaven captured the hearts of television audiences with its witty, charming and heartwarming storytelling and was praised for providing high-quality entertainment for all ages.

The series received numerous awards for chronicling the many complex problems of growing up in the world today. The young adults on 7th Heaven were exposed to issues ranging from teen suicide and sibling rivalry to violence in schools.

Storylines touched on such topics as the Holocaust, hate crimes, prejudice against Muslims, drug use, vandalism, the right to vote, drinking and driving, teen pregnancy and homelessness.

Reflecting the headlines of our times, episodes also focused on the Lost Boys of The Sudan, a real-life American serviceman who was killed in Afghanistan and a law allowing teenage mothers to turn their unwanted babies over to hospitals with no questions asked.

The series received honours from the Parents Television Council, The Media Project's Shine Awards, Entertainment Industries Council's Prism Awards, Viewers Voice, Anti-Defamation League, Film Advisory Board, Academy of Religious Broadcasting, Kids Choice Awards, Teen Choice Awards, Family Friendly Forum Awards and the TV Guide Awards.

7th Heaven stars Emmy Award-nominated Stephen Collins, Catherine Hicks, Beverley Mitchell, Nikolas and Lorenzo Brino as the twins, George Stults, Tyler Hoechlin and Haylie Duff.

Reverend Eric Camden (Collins) and his wife Annie (Hicks) have always had their hands full caring for seven children, not to mention the friends, sweethearts and spouses that continually come and go in the Camden household.

However, Eric and Annie's family issues are pushed to the wayside when Eric is diagnosed with a fatal heart condition and told he only has six months to live.

Of course, as you would expect, the news drastically alters the way they view life and how they interact with the community around them. Eric makes each decision as if it might be his last which proves heartbreaking and even humorous at times, and Annie attempts to fight fate by seeking guidance from psychics, healers and therapy groups.

At the end of Season 10, Matt (Barry Watson), Mary (Jessica Biel) and Lucy (Mitchell) all announced that their respective families were expecting twins, following in the footsteps of Eric and Annie.

The Season 11 opener reveals that Lucy lost the twins over the summer, leaving her to reevaluate what's next for her and her family.

Kevin (Stults) is a good husband and wants to help his wife during this difficult time, but, unfortunately, his efforts at making Lucy feel better only result in pushing her further away.

In addition to being a stay-at-home father, in the final season Kevin takes a troubled young boy - the boy who accidentally shot him in Season 10 - under his wing in an effort to change the course of his life.

Martin (Hoechlin) returns to Glenoak in Season 11 after realising that he misses his son and wants to become more active in his life.

His son's mother, Sandy (Duff), is in love with Simon (Gallagher), but finally comes to terms with the fact that she has to move on with her life after Simon returns to school.

She decides to attend seminary school and become a minister, creating an unspoken rivalry with Lucy who is also a minister and feels like Sandy is on her turf.

It also doesn't sit well with Lucy that the troubled teens from church, who had previously come to her for advice, now flock to Sandy who has a dark past that is more relatable.

Through all the ups and downs of 10 seasons, Eric and Annie managed to keep their romance alive and their family together. They've certainly been there and done that.

However, Eric's diagnosis in Season 11 throws their relatively normal lives into a tailspin and the family will now have to depend on each other more than ever.

7th Heaven was created by Brenda Hampton (Fat Actress, Mad About You, Blossom), who also serves as executive producer along with Aaron Spelling and E. Duke Vincent.

The series is a production of Spelling Television, Inc., a Paramount/Viacom company.
