Lifetime Cancels Army Wives

By Allison Moore

Washington, D.C. (September 24, 2013) - Lifetime has cancelled the drama Army Wives after seven seasons, reports Entertainment Weekly.

The network said the show, which aired its now final episode on June 9, will wrap with a two-hour retrospective early next year. The special will include cast members.

"There is no denying how special Army Wives has been to both Lifetime and the television landscape," Lifetime 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."

Army Wives, which focused on the wives of military men who live on base, has included several TV veterans over the years, including Brooke Shields, Catherine Bell and Kim Delaney.

Deadline.com reports that Army Wives' season debut last year captured just 2.26 million viewers, down roughly one million from the previous year.
