Lifetime has decided to divorce Army Wives—its longest-running original series—after several mostly happy years together. The show concluded its seventh and now final season this past June.
If we're being honest, Army Wives was lucky to get that final season; when Season 6 ended on a major cliffhanger, the series hadn't yet been renewed another go-round. The writing was on the wall at that point. The show was eventually granted a last-minute reprieve and all parties tried to make it work, but it just wasn't meant to be. Sometimes things just don't work out, you know? But before you start talking about other fish in the sea, you should know that Lifetime plans to give Army Wives a proper send-off (something that very rarely happens), via a two-hour retrospective special that will wrap up the series early next year.
Will you miss Army Wives? Did you even remember Army Wives was still on?
