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.

As a Army brat ( my dad served 27 yrs) as well as the spouse of a retired 1sgt I'm sadden to see Army Wives go.
I've been watching from day one and I will definitely miss this show. Bless you all for bringing to light what spouses go through daily.


I am so disappointed I really look forward to this series return. Can anything be done to bring it back on stream?


Will miss this show very much. Former military wife I could relate. Please don't go. Military families get transferred and new ones replace.


I am so very sorry Army Wives is being canceled. It is a great show and I will miss seeing it.


I am not happy with this decision. I guess you all are like others. You do not care what we think.Why take the great shows away? Please don't go.


Soooo sorry Army Wives was cancelled. It was the only TV presentation that gave insight to some of the hardships and sorrows that the loved ones left behind go through, Will keep hoping that the show will return again. Shame on management for letting it happen.


Do not cancel this was Lifetime at the best I love this show not fair bring it back !!!!!!!


I stopped watching when all the characters we started with were gone... it was effectively cancelled then. This is this is just a formality.


Sorry to hear the news. Army Wives is a great show was looking forward to the new season.


I am not happy about the cancelation of Army Wife. I was looking forward to the next season. I seems to me that the are canceling a lot of good shows and putting on more reality shows. Me personally am not really interested in some of the shows.
