‘Army Wives’ Cancelled by Lifetime After Seven Seasons

Show stood as the longest-running series on Lifetime to date

Lifetime is calling it quits with “Army Wives.”

The cabler is cancelling its longest-running series after seven seasons on the net. “Army Wives” completed its final season in June.

“There is no denying how special ‘Army Wives’ has been to both Lifetime and the television landscape,” said Rob Sharenow, exec veep and general manager of Lifetime. “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.”

Net will offer a two-hour retrospective on the series early next year.

Series, created by Katherine Fugate, was one of Lifetime’s top-rated dramas through its third, fourth and fifth season, but dipped significantly during its sixth and seventh runs.
