There are more shows coming to join the lists of cancelled shows of 2012 and renewed shows of 2012, and in this case, the longest running drama original from Lifetime: Army Wives, since Lifetime renewed Army Wives for season seven. Production for the Seventh Season is set to begin, and is preparing to Feature 13 All-New Episodes for 2013.
Lifetime has renewed its hit drama Army Wives for a seventh season with a 13 episode order for a 2013 return, it was announced today by Rob Sharenow, Executive Vice President, Programming, of Lifetime Networks.
Regarding the announcement, Sharenow said, “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.”
Averaging 3.2 million Total Viewers, Army Wives’ sixth season, which concluded September 9 and was the number one ad-supported cable series in its premiere time period among Women 18+, follows the struggles, dreams and friendships of a diverse group of women – and one man – living with their spouses and families on an active army post.
The series’ sixth season starred Kim Delaney, Sally Pressman, Brian McNamara, Sterling K. Brown, Wendy Davis, Drew Fuller, Terry Serpico, Kelli Williams and Catherine Bell, and also featured Kellie Martin, Alyssa Diaz and JJ Soria. Produced by ABC Studios, with Mark Gordon and Jeff Melvoin serving as executive producers, the series is based on the book Army Wives: The Unwritten Code of Military Marriage by Tanya Biank, who serves as a consultant.
