Fans have been waiting with baited breath since the September 9 season finale of the popular and long-running military drama Army Wives aired on Lifetime, wondering if the show would be returning for another season or not. Well, fans you can let out a sigh of relief. The show will be back for a 7th season, as announced by the network today.
Rob Sharenow, Executive Vice President of Lifetime Networks, shared this: “Army Wives is a very special program. It’s rare to find a series that connects with viewers and resonates so powerfully after six straight seasons, and we couldn’t be prouder to have it return to Lifetime next year”.
The series is based on the book “Army Wives: The Unwritten Code of Military Marriage’ by Tanya Biank, who serves as a consultant on the series and in its sixth season starred Kim Delaney, Sally Pressman, Brian McNamara, Sterling K. Brown, Wendy Davis, Drew Fuller, Terry Serpico, Kelli Williams and Catherine Bell as the principal cast as well as featured Kellie Martin, Alyssa Diaz and JJ Soria in recurring roles.
It is still up in the air which of the primary cast will be back for the seventh season, which will consists of 13 episodes, though. But it is known that Bell and Williams already have contracts in place for the new season.
The seventh season of ‘Army Wives’ will be back at some point in 2013.
