After eleven seasons, The CW has decided to close the book on the long running family drama, ‘7th Heaven.’ While other family dramas came and went, the series, which premiered on The WB in 1996 managed to survive for more than a decade. The show was nearly cancelled last year when UPN and The WB merged to become The CW but the new network inevitably picked it up after extremely high ratings during the intended season finale.

The news was reported on Kristin Veitch’s blog at Eonline.com, stating, “No official comment yet, but I'm told that the producers, cast and crew were informed by the network today.” The show centered on the Camdens, the family of a Protestant minister.

While many people, including myself, considered ‘7th Heaven’ to be an extremely cheesy and over-dramatic show, it was probably one of the last family dramas available that families could watch together.
