Reboots of our favorite TV series seem to be everywhere we look these days. From a reboot of “90210” to a fifth season of “Fuller House” on the horizon, fans can’t get enough of all the nostalgia.
Cameron has become quite the celebrity since his time on “Growing Pains,” which aired from 1985 to 1992. He has gone on to film documentaries and star in major, faith-driven motion pictures like “Left Behind” and “Fireproof.”
But it seems his role as the lovable and sometimes overconfident Mike Seaver has always held a special place in his heart, even after all these years.
According to Jeremy Miller, who played Cameron’s younger brother Ben Seaver on the show, the original cast is on board with the idea of a “Growing Pains” reboot.

Teaching my big bro @kirkcameronofficial and big sis @thetraceygold a couple of Tasty recipes. Had such a great time (as always!) spending the day with them. Working on a new project for Kirk. #growingpains #reunion #family #brothersisterlove #brothersandsisters #kirkcameron #traceygold #jeremymiller #actor #filming #actorslife #cooking #chef #foodie #nomnom #cheflife #teaching #cookingclass #celebritychef #yum
Miller added that Joanna Kerns, who starred as super mom Maggie Seaver, has even shown interest.
“She would most likely only come back for a few episodes, since she is the busiest director in Hollywood,” Miller said.
“But if we could get her to direct the reboot that would be amazing,” he added.
“We loved our ‘Growing Pains’ family and we were blessed to be able to share that with America,” Miller said. “Being able to do that again would be very special.”
Of course, the show will never quite be the same without the late Alan Thicke, who passed away on Dec. 13, 2016, at the age of 69.

I spent Monday through Friday for seven important years with Alan Thicke as my “TV dad.” I’m shocked and truly heartbroken today at the news of his death. Alan was a generous, kind and loving man. I am so blessed to have grown up with him. Chelsea and I send our love and prayers to his family tonight. We will cherish the memories… “sharing the laughter and love.”
Cameron shared his thoughts on growing up with Thicke as his “TV dad” on Instagram shortly after the actor’s passing.
“I am so blessed to have grown up with him,” he wrote.
Miller said the reboot was originally Thicke’s idea, and that following through with it would really be a way to honor him.
We’re keeping our fingers crossed for a “Growing Pains” reboot in our future. Until then we’ll watch for updates from Cameron’s Living Room Reset Tour.
The actor will reveal “secrets” about the reboot as the tour progresses, according to CBN. We hope we don’t have to wait too long to see a Seaver reunion in their own living room once again.
