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?

    We had an Army wives marathon via Nexflix…. The ending….. You’ve gotta be kidding me?! Seriously? Very, very disappointing…upsetting really, AND I dislike tv! Bad customer service!

    I am so sad about there not being another season. I do not like how they ended it. They should at least do a two part finale that shows the families possible future senerios. As far as I’m concerned they ended it terribly & they could cancel a few other shows so that army wives can continue.
    We should all take the time to thank a member of the military whenever we see them in the community. I always do.. We should also keep them and their families in our prayers. I do.

      I just went on a Army Wives marathon too and I didn’t like the ending! Don’t know who Gloria picked and the future of the rest of the Army Wives!
