Army Wives is an American drama series that follows the lives of four army wives, one army husband, and their families.
Army Wives aired its sixth season, consisting of 23 episodes, which premiered March 4, 2012. Initially, Lifetime ordered 13 episodes and then ordered an additional 10 episodes in November 2011. The remaining 10 episodes began airing June 24, 2012, after a five-week hiatus. The sixth season finale was September 9, 2012.
On September 21, 2012, the show was picked up for a thirteen-episode seventh season to air in 2013. In November 2012, it was confirmed that Season 6 main cast members Catherine Bell, Wendy Davis, Terry Serpico, Brian McNamara, Kelli Williams, Alyssa Diaz, and Joseph Julian Soria would return as regulars. Kim Delaney's character, who did not appear in the final episodes of the sixth season, is not returning. Season seven will premiere in the United States on March 10, 2013, at 9 pm Eastern on Lifetime.
The seventh season begins with Fort Marshall soldiers and workers mourning the loss of one of their own. The tribe tearfully comes together to say good-bye to a loved one. Roxy and Gloria befriend a young Army wife. Roland is offered an amazing opportunity to expand his research work, but he and Joan must make a difficult decision. A fight breaks out at the Hump.
Army Wives has been renewed for a seventh season by Lifetime, but star Kim Delaney likely won't be returning for the 13-episode run in 2013, according to Deadline. Other cast members are also in limbo.
Nevertheless, the renewal is official, Lifetime and ABC Studios confirmed today.
“Army Wives is a very special program,” Lifetime said in a statement. “It’s rare to find a series that connects with viewers and resonates so powerfully after six seasons, and we couldn’t be prouder to have it return next year.”
This was far from a given; Army Wives' Season 6 finale this summer was certainly tied up in a manner that could have ended the series altogether. Now that it's coming back, the question turns to the characters.
New cast member Kelli Williams, introduced last season in what many felt was a move to ensure a smooth transition if Delaney were to leave, will be back, along with Catherine Bell, who signed a two-year deal in May.
It's unclear if any other cast members are under agreement to return.
Delaney's departure has not been confirmed by the network. What do you think of Army Wives returning potentially without Claudia Joy? Can it survive without her, or any of the other characters?
