    More Army Wives please… and if the network feels the need to cancel the show, atleast have the respect for us viewers to give us a finale with good closure and no loose ends please. It was a little different getting used to the new cast members, but it should have felt that way. I assume this is how we would feel if we were in their shoes, new people, new places and experiences.

    I’m enjoying the show so far and it’s time for a back 10 order from the network… 13 epis is not enough, we need the whole 23..

    I didn’t initially watch A.W. in the first season. One day, I was channel surfing and found A.W. was on all day. I didn’t have anything else to do that day so I began watching. Needless to say, I was hooked. I looked forward to watching every Sunday and I was disappointed when each season ended and couldn’t wait for each new season to start again.
    I was sad to see Claudia Joy die and it was strange to see all the new faces in the beginning.
    It didn’t take long before they all became familiar and to belong at Ft. Marshall.
    Please let Army Wives continue. They have all become family and friends and all the viewers really want them back in our livingrooms on Sunday nights.

    It took some getting used to the new characters, but Season 7 was no disappointment. Love love love the show!! Please renew!!!

  4. kate fredericks says

    Of course it takes time to get used to a new set of characters. I liked the old set better because most of them were already well known and they seemed more real to me. NOBODY can replace the wonderful Sally Pressman who was probably my favorite wife, but demographics run TV today so there is no surprise they have brought in a bunch of fairly young new characters. In my opinion, there doesn’t seem to be the same feel to it, but that might just be my familiarity with the other wives (and husband) talking. I do not think this is the same show it was in the beginning and I thought the “season” finale, with all of the wives, some past and the rest new, locking arms and walking away as proud wives was a fitting series finale. However, I also think, being retired military, that this new group was touching on some extremely important issues such as PTSD, and limb injuries threatening a full military career that real military families deal with.

    Lifetime would do well to either keep this show going or start another one addressing these and many other heart breaking situations military families are dealing with today. Their current stable of sexy stories applies to few women today and as such, they are losing credibility with me as being a network for women. I’d rather they stay with one show that has class, whether I like the new cast or not.

    Yes, please renew Army Wives!!!

  8. Patty says

    I love this show. Wasn’t sure if it would be as good without Kim Delaney as she was the center of the show, but I like all of the new characters. Brooke Shields is great. Perfect fit for the Michael character. I hope this is renewed.

  9. Nikki says

    Does everyone like these new characters as much as the “old gang,” and do you think the show will be renewed next season?
