Watch 7th Heaven

7th Heaven was a popular wholesome family drama that followed Protestant minister Eric Camden (Stephen Rea) living in fictitious Glen Oak, California, along with his wife Annie (Catherine Hicks), their seven children, and their dog Happy (played by Happy the dog).

The children, from oldest to youngest, were all named after Biblical figures: Matt (Barry Watson), Mary (Jessica Biel), Lucy(Beverly Mitchell), Simon (David Gallagher), Ruthie (Mackenzie Rosman), and twins Sam and David (Lorenzo and Nikolas Brino). The show follows the family as Eric and Annie try to raise their children within the Protestant faith, instilling Christian morals in them in an ever-changing society.

Over the show's run, episodes watched the characters learn and grow, while touching an important social issues such as premarital sex, self-mutilation, stealing, underage drinking, the importance of voting, swearing, virginity, affirmative action, racism, and homosexuality. Many of these issues were discussed during "very special episodes", a phrase used heavily to advertise, and which brought in many viewers. These very special episodes, addressing important, current issues in a clean, moral manner were primarily responsible for the show's longevity and success.

Jessica Biel and Barry Watson left the show after the sixth season to pursue movie careers and were replaced by other characters, such as Lucy's husband, Kevin (George Stults). Both made several guest appearances after their departure and were full members of the cast during the ninth season. Other supporting cast members included Jeremy London, Haylie Duff, Ashlee Simpson, Rachel Blanchard, and Adam Lavorgna. The show occasionally had guest appearances by current popular idols, such as N'Sync's Lance Bass.

7th Heaven was written and produced by Brenda Hampton, produced by Aaron Spelling, and distributed by Paramount Domestic Television. It initially aired on the WB, then moved to the CW as part of the network transition. The series run for eleven seasons, for a total of 243 episodes, running from 1996 - 2007.
