    Please keep Army Wives ! The show has been amazing even though I have been watching since the very beginning and was a bit skeptical on a cast change it was a good move . The military is about change and new people and bringing in the new cast in my opinion was a smart call I just think its going to have to be advertised more because I know that we live on a military base and tons of women have never even heard about it when they think of lifetime they think of their grandmas soaps and lifetime at night has a fresh young flare about it and I introduced this to them and they all love the show. Also I think the show has great potential but please don’t leave out the military aspect of it from the military wives everyday life style .

  2. Jessica says

    Yes I think army wives should continue! Even with the new characters, the story lines are just as intriguing. people start watching a show at different seasons, so newcomers don’t miss the original characters.

  3. Ann says

    Please renew Army Wives, my husband and 95-year old Dad also love the series…what happened to the 5/26/13 episode…….it’s a great series.

  4. Lily says

    Please bring season 8. In fact add on to season 7. I am not happy with Roland’s ultimatum for Joan. So unfair and out of character .New characters are great..

  5. Heidi says

    I too have been watching Army Wives since season 1. Please keep it going for season 8. It makes Sunday nights for me tolerable. As a teacher, and Sunday nights being rough, Army Wives makes ends my night on a great note. Please keep it going.

  6. Susan says

    Please renew Army Wives! Having the cast die or move to another base keeps it real. One of my fav shows!

    Army Wives is the best show that relates to real life events and issues concerning military wives, there is so much story there and very beneficial. Keep Army Wives going.

    Army Wives is getting better now than it was when it first aired… there needed to be fresh faces and new relationship challenges and toss ups and things going a little haywire, like with Gloria and Hector and Patrick. There needed to be a loose teenager like Caroline and a step mom for heavens sakes, now these people feel more relatable. It would be a shame to cancel them when you are just getting started with them, as it is to order 13 episode instead on 23 was a bit pessimistic… we are just learning to fall in love with the sassy little Latasha and her kids… it is fun to watch new people manage you have made them so much more relatable you really need to keep it going. I am EXCITED to watch this show again, instead of just watching it because it is on. honestly in the last few years I missed episodes and didn’t care now I am salivating for Sunday and its only Monday! I would actually recommend this show to my friends now. you have to give us another season to keep going with these new faces!

    I love Army Wives. I have been watching this show since season 1. Please renew for season 8. It’s one of my favorite shows.

  10. lele says

    I am definitely loving the new cast please renewed for season 8. Also the ratings is getting better considering no one really knew about season 7 I thought season 6 was the last one

  11. says

    Claudia Joy was never my fave character it was all about Roxy. That being said I thought the new cast would be too many changes, but I find myself loving it still and it’s made it fresh and how much more could’ve happened with and for the old characters. Keep it going…yes to season 8+
