Army Wives: Cancelled by Lifetime; No Season Eight

Army Wives canceledLifetime has cancelled Army Wives, their long-running drama, after seven seasons. While there won’t be an eighth season, the cable channel has plans for a two-hour retrospective special with castmembers which will air in early 2014.

Army Wives follows the lives of a diverse group of women living with their spouses and families on an active Army post. Created by Katherine Fugate, the series has starred Catherine Bell, Kim Delaney, Sally Pressman, Wendy Davis, Brigid Brannagh, Kelli Williams, Brian McNamara, Sterling K. Brown, Brooke Shields, Ashanti, Torrey DeVitto, Elle McLemore, Jesse McCartney, Terry Serpico, Drew Fuller, Alyssa Diaz, J.J. Soria, Joshua Henry and Burgess Jenkins.

Rob Sharenow, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Lifetime, said, “There is no denying how special Army Wives has been to both Lifetime and the television landscape. By taking on a very relevant and timely issue, it has brilliantly captured the challenges our military families endure and the bravery they and their loved ones display while serving our country.”

What do you think? Are you sorry that there won’t be an eighth season of Army Wives? Do you think the special should wrap up the storylines in some way?

I Think This Is The Best Series In A Long Time. And You Would Be Crazy To Cancel It. Think About It And Keep It Going

I’m really upset that they cancelled this show. I’m even more upset because it stopped at a cliff hanger. I loved all the characters and by the end I felt like they were friends. This show really helped me during the 7 months while my boyfriend was in basic training and AIT. I’m super bummed to see it gone. It’s like an old friend has passed.

What the heck that can’t just leave it like that. I think it’s a big mistake to cancel the show. I love that she and am curious to know what happens next. Wish there would have been more seasons would have loved to watch. . :(

I can relate to the women on the show being an Army wife, now retired. Lifetime was in error to cancel this show. Please, please bring it back.

I am very upset. Lifetime needs to do an 8th season. I doubt i continue to watch lifetime because i am so angry. i love this show, and its also comforting to the military families. I am so upset. This is such a great show.

There absolutely should be an eighth season!! The way season seven ended left us fans hanging! There’s a lot that should be wrapped up in the eighth season if they no longer want to make the program!! Season 8? Hell yes!!


Carly Marie November 3, 2014 at 9:44 pm

I agree, they can’t end us like that! Come on! Seriously!?!?!?!? Who decided this?
