'7th Heaven' cast, minus Ruthie, reunites

7TH-HEAVEN

The Camden clan reunited Tuesday night and posted a photo, confirming that it’s still seventh heaven when you see their happy faces smilin’ back at you.

Beverley Mitchell, a.k.a. Lucy, shared a photo of her and her former co-stars gathered around a dinner table on WhoSay with the caption, “Something truly amazing happened last night and my heart is overflowing!”

It wasn’t that amazing, though, because the most important Camden was missing: Ruthie (Mackenzie Rosman) was absent. What’s a Camden gathering without Ruthie (before she became a horrifying teenager) singing “The Star-Spangled Banner“? READ FULL STORY

'Boy Meets World': Eric and Morgan reunite for a round of trivia -- VIDEO

On a sunny day in Pasadena just a few weeks ago, the cast of Boy Meets World gathered together for EW’s Reunions photo shoot. At the time, it had been nearly 13 years since some of them had seen each other in person. So how did we celebrate? By making them all answer trivia questions, of course!

The first trivia round, which we shared with you exclusively on our Facebook page, featured series stars Ben Savage, Danielle Fishel, and Rider Strong. And today, we bring you round two, with Will Friedle and Lily Nicksay, who played Eric and Morgan (for the first two seasons), respectively.

In the video below, see the pair tackle some tough — and unexpectedly awkward! — trivia questions. Spoiler: Friedle is kind of a trivia master!

'Hart to Hart' plus 'Austin Powers' reunion: Rob Lowe poses with Robert Wagner -- PHOTO

EW’s Hart to Hart reunion didn’t take place atop a moving train or inside a dastardly villain’s weather chamber. Instead, we brought the Harts — Robert Wagner and Stefanie Powers — to the set of NBC’s Parks and Recreation, where they were interviewed by eager Hart to Hart superfans Adam Scott and Amy Poehler. (Scott and Poehler re-created the detective romance’s opening credits in the last installment of Scott’s occasional Adult Swim special, The Greatest Event in Television History.)

During Wagner and Powers’ photoshoot, another Parks and Rec star stopped by to say hello: Rob Lowe, who played a younger version of Wagner’s evil Austin Powers character in Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me. Both Number 2s — plus Powers; Stefanie, not Austin — gladly posed for the above group shot. Not pictured: The dog brought in to play Jonathan and Jennifer Hart’s beloved pup Freeway, who was a big hit on set with both the stars and the crew.

See more of Wagner, Powers, Scott, and Poehler on Facebook, where fans of EW’s page can unlock an exclusive video of Poehler and Scott seeing if Wagner and Powers remember some of the series’ craziest plotlines. And yes, the weather chamber comes up.

This Week's Cover: The casts of 'Boy Meets World,' 'The X-Files,' 'Mystic Pizza,' and more get together in the Reunions Issue!

Missing Mulder and Scully? Can’t cope without Cory and Topanga? Entertainment Weekly has you covered with our fourth annual Reunions Issue, in which we’ve brought 10 of your favorite casts back together again. The stars of Boy Meets World, Do the Right Thing, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, The School of Rock and more reassembled to chat about their iconic characters and swap stories about life on the set. (Fans of Frasier, Mystic Pizza, or The X-Files can even purchase one of three special collector’s edition covers. Click here to learn more.) Check out what’s in store for this year’s Reunions Issue:

Boy Meets World: ABC’s long-running coming-of-age comedy Boy Meets World gave the ’90s generation the picture-perfect teen romance between Cory Matthews (Ben Savage) and Topanga Lawrence (Danielle Fishel). “People saw it from the very beginning, when Cory and Topanga were hanging out and playing basketball with a pair of socks,” recalls star Savage, who will reprise his onscreen pairing with Fishel for Disney’s upcoming spin-off Girl Meets World. “[The Cory-Topanga relationship is] something that’s very special to people who grew up with the show.” (Head to Facebook for an exclusive video with the cast of Boy Meets World.)

Do the Right Thing: It only took 12 days for director Spike Lee to write his blistering 1989 classic about racial tensions in Brooklyn on the hottest day of summer. “It was going to be what we hoped was an honest portrayal of the race relations in that present-day New York City,” says Lee, who was an up-and-coming young filmmaker at the time. Ruby Dee remembers her first time meeting Lee: “When I first saw him, I thought he looked so young, like a teenager. I didn’t know he was the boss of the joint. But he smoothed any doubts that I had because he knew exactly what he wanted.”

Mystic Pizza: An entire generation fell in love with the small-town drama about three young women (and pizza-joint employees) entering adulthood, which made a star out of then-unknown Julia Roberts. “I went to meet the director and there were tons of kids there Julia’s age, and I remember meeting Julia in the lobby and going, ‘Wow, who’s that chick?’” recalls star Vincent D’Onofrio. Recalls Roberts, “We were just…happy. Happy to have jobs, happy to be working hard, and enjoying each other’s company.”

The X-Files: For nine heart-pounding seasons, Chris Carter’s groundbreaking sci-fi saga kept both believers and skeptics glued to their televisions, thanks to the unmistakable chemistry between stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny. “Gillian and I got [to the audition] about the same time, and we ended up running lines in the hallway,” recalls Duchovny. “We had developed a comfort level with each other when we did the audition. Over time, we grew into ourselves as actors, and refined what those characters meant to each other.”
