Lifetime announced today that Army Wives will not be returning. The drama, which is the network's longest-running series, ends after seven seasons and 117 episodes.
In a press release, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Lifetime, Rob Sharenow 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. It has been an honor to be the home of Army Wives. We also want to thank Army Wives’ passionate legion of fans and everyone involved with the series: ABC Studios, Mark Gordon and Jeff Melvoin, Tanya Biank, every single cast member, as well as the crew and community of Charleston, South Carolina. Without their dedication, effort and loyalty, Army Wives’ seven wonderful seasons would not have been possible; and for that we are very grateful.”
To honor the show and say farewell, a 2-hour retrospective special featuring the show's cast is being planned for early 2014.
It is so sad that you decided to cancel the show. I know if you started it up again, it would be a hit, and there are so many more stories to tell. The army goes on, why can't Army Wives?

Army wives is one of the best shows on tv. My husband wanted to do away with the Lifetime channel and I would not hear of it, simply because I was waiting for the new season of Army Wives. I think you have made a huge mistake by canceling such a great show.

I have watched all seasons . Army Wives gave me insights on what real life battle our soldiers face. Claudia Joy and the others ladies were very supportive and always supported each other in all their problems . I will missed this show I hope you will reconsider ..

It breaks my heart I loved this show. Too many other shows

I think Army Wives should have come back for its final season. This show had talent.....emotion....guts.....glory...... and it had family......their struggles....and challenges......they leave garbage on the air and take off solid shows like this one. I looked forward to the return of Army Wives.
