Growing Pains: Return of the Seavers (also known as Growing Pains II: Home Equity) is a 2004 American made-for-television film that first aired on ABC October 16, 2004. It is the second (and to date, last) reunion film of the modern-day Seaver family from the 1985–1992 sitcom Growing Pains.



All of the Seaver kids have left the nest and have children of their own. But when Mike, Carol, and Chrissy have no place to go when Kate is at a spa, Scott is out on a campaign, and Chrissy claims to have got evicted, what's going to happen? Well Jason and Maggie were originally going to sell the house to a childhood friend of Mike and Carol's named Richie Flanscopper. In reality the realtor is Ben. Ben is dead set on selling this house, but the rest of the Seaver kids aren't so keen on the idea. Due to this, Mike and Carol (who's pregnant), take matters into their own hands and sabotage the house so their little brother can't sell it to Richie and his wife Fiona. Meanwhile, Mike's oldest Michelle, is sad about her dad going to Tokyo, for a job promotion, while the rest of the kids, haven't a thought about it. Close to the end, Ben realizes that his siblings and parents really do not want to sell the house so he makes the house unsellable. He drives Mike's car through the garage door, and Fiona and Richie decide to not buy the house. All Seavers rejoice, except Carol who all of a sudden goes into labor. At the end of the movie Carol's son is born. They named him Seaver Malone Johnson. And it's a happy ending for everyone.
