Army Wives – An Oldie But A Goodie

Army Wives is a U.S. drama television series which follows the lives of four army wives, one army husband as well as their families.

The series first aired on Lifetime on 3 June 2007. It ran for seven seasons and ended on 9 June 2013. The show had the biggest series premiere in Lifetime’s 23-year history.

Army Wives received favourable reviews in addition to several award nominations. The show won five ASCAP Awards in addition to one Gracie Allen Award.

On 21 September 2012, the show was picked up for a 13 -episode, seventh season which aired in 2013. In November 2012, it was confirmed that the season 6 main cast members – Catherine Bell, Wendy Davis, Terry Serpico, Brian McNamara, Kelli Williams, Alyssa Diaz as well as Joseph Julian Soria – would come back as regulars. Kim Delaney’s character, who was not seen in the final episodes of the sixth season, was written out.

What’s It All About

The main characters in Army Wives aren’t afraid to be vulnerable or make mistakes, learn from them and then move forward. It’s not a reality show, however the characters which Lifetime has created certainly feel authentic.

Viewers flocked to the show. As we said beforehand, it’s the highest-rated series in the network’s 25-year history. While that may be because there aren’t many other scripted series on this network known for its made-for-TV movies, Army Wives had already been renewed for a fourth season before its third season has even started to air.
