'Army Wives' Cancelled After Season 7: Lifetime Will Air Retrospective Special

Lifetime has cancelled "Army Wives," ending the series after seven seasons. To wrap up the series, Lifetime will air a two-hour retrospective special to air early next year.

"There is no denying how special 'Army Wives' has been to both Lifetime and the television landscape," Lifetime's Exec VP Rob Sharenow said in a statement. "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.”

The series concluded its seventh -- and ultimately final -- season in June. "Army Wives" starred Catherine Bell, Kim Delaney, Sally Pressman, Wendy Davis, Brigid Brannagh, Kelli Williams, Brian McNamara, Sterling K. Brown, Brooke Shields, Ashanti and Torrey DeVitto. It followed the struggles, dreams and friendships of a diverse group of women living with their spouses and families on an active Army post.
