The troubled cast of Growing Pains...where are they now?

How one family drama from the 80s  taught us everything about everything.

It was in the late 80s and early 90s that we got to know the Seavers in the family drama Growing Pains. At first glance, they seemed like a typical, wholesome family drama.

But watch just one episode and you quickly learned that this family was dealing with just about everything life could throw at it.

Now, 22 years – yes, 22 years – after the final episode aired we can buy the entire series on DVD and relive the lessons we first learned as children.

Let’s look back on Jason, Maggie, Mike, Carol and Ben and find out where these actors are now. You’ll never believe what some of them are up to.
