Said Lifetime Executive Vice President and General Manager Rob Sharenow in a statement:

“There is no denying how special Army Wives has been to both Lifetime and the television landscape. 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…. 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.”

Throughout its run, Army Wives received numerous accolades: two Gracie Awards from the Alliance for Women in Media; a Sentinel for Health Award from the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism’s Norman Lear Center; an NAACP Image Award; and a NAMIC Award.

Good! Finally got cancelled! So hollywoodized and a very liberal show. When you show a shirt that Trevor wore that said "one nation (3 American flags under it) then Indivisible WITHOUT 'Under God" that's what you get! People are dying for their country and you treat it like a soap opera. If this is any indication of the people you are portraying, America sure is one lost country!


Unbelievable!!! The best show ever canceled. My husband and I never missed it..
We live in an rv and travel full time and pay an outrageous amount for direct TV so we could watch Army Wives¡!!!!!! So disappointed in Lifetime's decision to cancel.


Really disappointed that lifetime has canceled army wives. One of the best show ever. You can keep all the crap shows on. Like honey-boo. That to me is gross just a fat family. That is what is wrong with younger crowd of tv. They haveno morals. They really don't think of adult choices on TV Save Army Wives,or another station pick it up. Please


Lifetime you can not cancel Army Wives it is one of the best shows ever to be on tv please reconsider I would only watch that on Sundays and yes these dumb shows such as Honey Boo Boo need to be canceled. BRING ARMY WIVES BACK TO TV! Army Wives made you laugh and cry.And was based on real life problems so be smart and bring it back SOON.


Can't believe this. I looked forward to this show, being a former female soldier and now an army wife, i can totally relate to this show. But Lifetime network chooses to put other "reality" based shows on. I will not watch this channel now.


Bring back bring back bring back. Best shoulder ever was


Truly upset that Army Wives will not continue. Don't understand why!!!!
Lifetime should be ashamed. Need to bring it BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Why do you cancel a show which has such a big fan base?
Its a great show,finally something I could identify with
and looked forward to. As a former army wife I looked at this show with repect and joy since it show real life situations. Don't cancel it. Keep it on the air. Cancel some other junk like Honey Boo Boo or dance moms.


This is a big mistake Army Wives was such a good show I never missed it. Would watch it on line again what are you thinking lifetime. Really we put up with shows like Honey boo boo and Duck Dynasty and all the other reality shows TV is going to crap. 1st you cancel Client List and now Army Wives. Very very disappointed the network needs to get there head out of there back side and bring this show back PLEASE

@ Dea

Anything good Lifetime is going to lose a lot of followers. Cancel that screeching women on the dance moms cancel the whole thing lifetime movies are a joke lifetime is a joke!!!! Loved Army Wives and the Client list gone. Crap is taking its mplace


Unbelievable....I myself truly thought that Army Wives was the best show on tv. I never missed an episode and was looking forward to a new season. But, in reality, you Lifetime, directors, writers, producers, whoever.....screwed it up when you took all the "original" characters off. But I was still looking forward to it. In the back of my mind I was hoping that you would bring some of the original cast members back, eventually. You all screwed up cancelling this one.
