This video includes ten of Treat’s best roles over his long and wonderful career. I’ve also included a small tribute to him at the end. Please listen to Treat from his performance as George Berger in HAIR, and from his role of Andy Brown from EVERWOOD.

Looks like we might be getting that reboot of EVERWOOD. Series creator and showrunner Greg Berlanti is saying it might happen. Considering how busy Treat is I’m wondering where he’d fit it in unless there were a limited number of episodes.
Everwood has a “real shot” of making a comeback, says series creator
Without Chris Pratt though, right?
By Rianne Houghton 15 May 2018
Despite coming to a close over 10 years ago, classic US series Everwood might one day be making its comeback.
(Without Chris Pratt, we’re guessing though.)
Arrowverse legend and the series’ creator Greg Berlanti has recently revealed that the soapy drama has a ‘special place in his heart’, and that the door to Everwood has never really closed.
Speaking to Variety, the successful producer singled out the show for the potential revival treatment, saying that there’s “a real shot” it could return for a fifth season.
“Definitely of all of them, Everwood is the one that has a special song in my heart,” he admitted. “I think it’s about schedules and finances and budget.
“If we can get a budget to a place, I think that there’s a real shot that that could come back. I think we just have to figure out what would be the best way to do it, but there’s nothing firm in place yet.”
Everwood originally aired on CW forerunner The WB from 2002 through to 2006 before it was cancelled. The series followed Dr Andy Brown, played by Treat Williams, as he and his family adjust to life in the new town of Everwood following the loss of his wife.
As well as starring genuine A-lister Chris Pratt, the series also starred Gregory Smith, Vivien Cardone, Revenge’s Emily VanCamp and Debra Mooney, to name but a few.

I finally was able to get almost 400 event images of Treat up in the gallery. It took some time to sort these so forgive the lateness as I got these around the middle of March. They are mostly from 2016, 2017, and one from 2018. They range from film festivals where some of Treat’s films were entered, to a couple of events for Treat being honoured in his capacity as a pilot, to a twenty year reunion for the cast of Treat’s CW series EVERWOOD where he played the beloved Dr. Andrew Brown, and several for his Hallmark series CHESAPEAKE SHORES where he plays Mick O’Brien. I won’t be posting each event individually as there’s over twenty of them. Instead I’ll post the links to each section in the gallery and you can click on those to visit there. Enjoy.
The online streaming service Hulu is currently airing Treat’s series EVERWOOD. Treat played the part of the beloved Dr. Andy Brown who transplanted his family from New York to Everwood after the tragic death of his wife played by Brenda Strong. The series aired from 2002-2006 before it was cancelled after four seasons on the CW. The series is notable for having both Chris Pratt and Emily Van Camp as Bright and Amy Abbot pre-Marvel superstardom as Peter Quill/Starlord and Sharon Carter/Agent 13. The show was created by Eli Stone producer Greg Berlanti.
I’m currently working on stills and promotional images from the show for the gallery. I’m also trying to find out if the series is on blu-ray for me to get screencaps up in the gallery.
‘Everwood’ Is Now On Hulu & It’s Been A Long Time Coming For The 2000s Classic
By Dana Getz
Ready your tissue boxes, because Everwood is now on Hulu. The WB tear-jerker has been off the air for more than a decade, but it’s one of the few 2000s gems that had — aside from a stint on the largely underutilized CW Seed — yet to land a streaming home, where modern viewers can discover its story anew and old fans can relive all the heartwarming (and heartbreaking) moments that made it an early aughts classic. Let’s remember: This is the show that first gave us Chris Pratt. Long before he played a lovable goofball on Parks and Recreation, he was the dim but endearing Bright Abbott.
The series, which ran for four seasons from 2002 to 2006, centers on the small town charm of Everwood, Colorado. Following the death of his wife, Dr. Andy Brown (Treat Williams) uproots his family from their home in New York City and moves to the rural mountains of Everwood in search of a fresh start. As an in-demand Manhattan neurosurgeon, he’d lost touch with his kids by prioritizing work, and much of the show centers around his efforts to rebuild their fraying relationships — and, someday, find love once more.
As an aspiring pianist with dreams of attending Juilliard, his 15-year-old son, Ephram (Gregory Smith), is initially reluctant to embrace Everwood, but soon falls for Amy Abbott (Emily VanCamp), sparking an on-again, off-again romance that becomes a driving force in the show. Ephram’s 9-year-old sister Delia, meanwhile, is just doing her best to adjust to her new life and press forward without her mom. What results is a drama filled with sentimental reflections on love, family, and growing up that are wistful as they are touching. So much so that you’re only mildly tempted to roll your eyes through all of the grand gestures and sappy platitudes along the way.
And apparently, the cast and crew think so too. They reunited last August for a panel at the Television Critics Association press tour, where they shared teary-eyed stories from their work on Everwood (executive producer: Rina Mimoun). “We were given emotional work to do, and when people are given work that deep and powerful, when you’re doing scenes like that with people, you’re opening up your guts,” said Tom Amandes, who played Dr. Harold Abbott, of their continued closeness per Variety.
Even Greg Berlanti, now one of TV’s most prolific producers, (see: Riverdale, Supergirl, Black Lightning, and the like), said it remains one of his most personal projects. “People who know this show probably know me better,” he said, though he noted that, when he wrote the pilot, he hadn’t gone through as much tragedy as his characters. He continued at the panel:
“[Everwood came from] wanting to put on TV subject matter that felt like it was in the news but not referenced in dramas. The cornerstone of it was that tragedy makes us real. When we suffer tragedy, we become richer, deeper, more meaningful people.”
Despite the emotionally intense subject matter, though, Everwood accrued a devoted fan base, and longtime stans are very onboard for Everwood’s arrival on Hulu. “EVERYONE stop what you are doing. EVERWOOD IS STREAMING,” wrote one Twitter user. Added another: “EVERWOOD is now on hulu. no one even try to contact me for the next three weeks.” And Pratt’s mentions are assumedly quite crowded. Who knows, maybe this will spark some reboot interest? Four seasons never seemed to be enough.
In any event, you can now add Everwood to your list of nostalgic shows to marathon — or if you missed it the first time around, finally catch up on all the hype.
