The WB drama series had every ingredient to make a classic family show, and this is why it is still remembered as an icon from the early 2000s despite having run for only four seasons. This is what its cast went on to do.

“Everwood” (2002-2006) was canceled more than 20 years from now when it’s network disappeared, but it has secured its place as an iconic family drama from the period, apart from serving as a vehicle from some future stars.

The different career moves of these amazing cast of actors show how much can change in the business after an outstanding success. Let’s revisit the careers of the performers that brought this heartwarming show to life.



The 68-year-old actor played Dr. Andrew Brown, a widowed brain surgeon that leaves Manhattan with his two children to the small fictional town of Everwood, Colorado, setting the premise for the entire series.
