The Camdens are back together, at last!

Former 7th Heaven stars Beverley Mitchell, Barry Watson, David Gallagher, Catherine Hicks and Mackenzie Rosman reunited on Sunday for a conversation moderated by PEOPLE's Breanne Heldman at 90s Con in Hartford, Connecticut. Together, the series alum reminisced about their time working on the beloved family drama — and shared some behind-the-scenes tidbits about the series, including some surprise cast crushes on Watson.

"Jessie and Beverley had such a crush on him," Hicks, 72, revealed, referencing Jessica Biel and Mitchell, 43. "They were, like, so in love with him. [Beverley] was 15 and Jessie was 14."

Gallagher, 39, then joked: "We were all in love with Barry!"

"I'd come out of my trailer, they were always lingering around," Watson, 49, recalled to laughter from the audience. "They were trying to act naturally."

To be fair, Mitchell pointed out that her trailer was "right next to" Watson's own. But Watson argued that the pair would be "on the stairs" waiting outside for him.

Elsewhere in the panel, Mitchell also revealed there was a 7th Heaven rewatch podcast in the works, noting that fans should "stay tuned on social media" for timing.

7th Heaven ran on The WB (later The CW) from 1996 to 2007 for 11 seasons. Created by Brenda Hampton, the series followed a reverend and his wife navigating the ups and downs of raising seven children of various ages.

Although reboots and revivals of classic shows are on the rise, it's unlikely that 7th Heaven will get the same treatment.

"The kids grew up, and Stephen's gone, and, no, no, you let it go," Hicks told TMZ in January 2023. "And I don't act anymore. I don't have the tears in me. They're gone."

"Because I was playing a homemaker, I wasn't there for my real daughter, but now I'm home for my real daughter," she added. "Because she never got me then when she was little. So, it's really fulfilling."
