The cast of Mission: Impossible remained intact between Season 6 and Season 7, which was only the second time that had ever occurred and the first since between Season 2 and Season 3, but this stability would not last long. Lynda Day George had announced at the end of Season 6 that she was expecting a child, her first (and only) with husband Christopher George, so something would have to be done. Since no one wanted her to leave permanently, it was decided she would go on maternity leave for part of Season 7, with her character Lisa Casey going on special assignment in Europe. This would be the first time a character's absence was ever addressed on the show, as all previous absences, whether they be temporary like Willy's in Season 5 or permanent like team leader Dan Briggs' after Season 1 were never explained. This newly found sense of continuity did lead to some confusion however, as episodes had previously been aired out of order, which was not a problem since each none of the episodes were actually connected, and episodes in Season 7 jumped back and forth between Casey being in the episode and off in Europe or vice versa. Due to the episode reshuffling, she was notably missing in the season (and what would be the series) finale.

In Lynda Day George's absence, actress Barbara Anderson, late of Ironsides, was brought in as a substitute, playing ex-con Mimi Davis. She starred in seven episodes, while other actresses made one-off appearances similar to what happened in Season 4 until Lynda Day George returned.

By Season 7, the show was struggling to stay fresh, shamelessly ripping off itself by tapping into older episodes. Episode 2 "Two Thousand" was essentially a remake of episode 3 of Season 1's "Operation Rogosh," and Episode 18 "The Fighter" was basically the same story as episode 10 of Season 6 "Blues," with Syndicate boxing promoters replacing Syndicate records executives.

It was soon clear that the show was sinking, with little hope of rescue. Greg Morris had already announced that Season 7 would be his last no matter what since he was unhappy with where the show was going, and Paramount had went ahead and shot another pilot with writer/producer Laurence Heath and Peter Graves. Paramount finally told CBS they were pulling the plug, which was just as well since ratings had plunged for the first time since Season 4 to their lowest point ever. Syndication rights had been sold right after Season 1, so the show finally started paying off for Paramount. After several abortive attempts at reviving the show, either as a TV movie or feature, Paramount finally got a new series off the ground in 1988. Initially planned as a remake with new actors taking on the roles of Jim Phelps, Rollin Hand, Cinnamon Carter, Barney Collier and Willy Armitage, it turned into a continuation after Peter Graves joined the cast, with Jim Phelps leading a new team of IMF operatives.

Peter Graves' new pilot was not picked up, but continued working steadily in film and television, even showing off his comedic chops for Zucker, Abrahams and Zucker playing Captain Clarence Oveur in the comedy classic Airplane!. He was the only member of the original cast to join the regular cast of the 1988 Mission: Impossible revival, and was offered a chance to return as Jim Phelps in the 1996 Mission: Impossible feature, but refused after reading the script. He passed away due to a heart attack just days from his 84th birthday in 2010.

Greg Morris stayed busy as well, guest starring in numerous television shows, sometimes even spoofing his image as the tech guy. He was a regular cast member on the Aaron Spelling series Vega$, and returned as Barney Collier in three episodes of the 1988 revival series, appearing alongside his son Phil, who starred in the series as Barney's son Grant. He was very vocal about his displeasure regarding the 1996 Mission: Impossible feature, but passed away due to cancer later that year at the age of 62.

Lynda Day George made regular appearances in film and television after the show ended, but slowly withdrew from acting shortly after her husband Christopher George dropped dead of a heart attack in 1983. Her final acting credit was returning as Lisa Casey in the first season of the 1988 revival series.

Peter Lupus didn't make as many appearances in film and television after the show ended compared to his former cast members. He played Superman in the series of ads for the US Army until his spread in Playgirl magazine put an end to that campaign. He was the only Season 7 cast member not to appear in the 1988 revival series. Like Peter Graves, he showed off his comedic chops for Zucker, Abrahams and Zucker, playing the dim-witted Detective Norberg in the short-lived series Police Squad!. He continues to stay fit, still setting weight lifting records for his age group even into his seventies.

The following weapons were used in Season 7 of the television series Mission: Impossible (1966):
