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’m very bummed that they are cancelling this show. It is one of my favorites. I wish they would do a 2 hour movie to wrap up the series rather then just do a retrospective

    Army Wives was one of the few shows I watched on Lifetime. It was relevant, compelling, and I loved it. I’m only interested in drama – not reality TV, suspense, action, vampire, or commedy. So sorry to see Army Wives go, but appreciate seven years and hope we will see storylines wrapped up.

    Hate to hear this. One of my favorite shows. Seems the good ones are always cancelled. I, too, was looking so forward to the new season.

    Very disapointing! If we comment and petition lifetime can we get them to change their mind? Not a good idea to cancel it. There is so much junk and reality tv we need good famoly shows on. I can’t relate to rich celebrities living the fancy life or jersey shore party girls sleeping all day and partying all night. I am disapointed!
