Lifetime Renews 'Army Wives' for a Seventh Season in 2013

'Supernatural'... 'Cheers'... 'Friends'... and... 'Army Wives.'

Seven seasons is an incredibly impressive feat by any scripted series, Comedy or Drama, and Lifetime has now bestowed that honor upon their hit drama 'Army Wives.'

Army Wives cast

Lifetime has ordered thirteen new episodes for their long-running series--plenty of time for more dramatic twists and turns. The sixth season of 'Army Wives' ended only last week; the numbers do not lie and the persistent popularity of the somewhat under-the-radar series cannot be denied, averaging 3.2 million viewers.

DelaneyFor those unfamiliar with the Lifetime series, it is based on the book "Army Wives: The Unwritten Code of Military Marriage" by series consultant Tanya Biank. 'Army Wives' stars Catherine Bell, Kim Delaney, Sally Pressman, Brian McNamara, Sterling K. Brown, Wendy Davis, Drew Fuller, Terry Serpico and Kelli Williams.

Fans will likely remember Kim Delaney from 'NYPD Blue' and 'Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.' Delaney has played 'Army Wives' mainstay Claudia Joy Holden for six seasons, along with beautiful but less-recognizable Wendy Davis as Claudia's friend Joan. Davis

ABC Studios was clearly seeking a cost-effective way to keep 'Army Wives' in production, but was wary enough of the waning popularity of the series to consider moving production of the show to California. 'Army Wives' producers applied for the California TV Tax Credit Lottery, but was not picked; as such, production of the show will remain in South Carolina, in keeping with the former seasons. The announcement of a seventh season proves that Lifetime is confident enough to keep the series afloat despite its cost; no word as of yet on the status of Lifetime series 'Drop Dead Diva,' which may be on the chopping block.

My sister had asked me several times if I was watching "Army Wives", I wasn't and she'd say "watch it", it is really good, you'd really like it. I happened to be skimmy through Netflix and saw it there...started watching series 1 and became ADDICTED. Watched all 6 seasons in about 2 weeks. I can't wait to see it coming back March 10th 2013.

I'm addicted to Army Wives and Drop Dead Diva. They are good wholesome shows. We complain that television especially scripted programs are not for families,and.I feel very strongly that these are. I have watched each since the beginning.

PLease leave Army Wives alone. I was a Army Wife and a FSG Leader. During the Gulf war we were called FSG now they are FRG. But the same job.I really enjoy watching this show. When something good comes on leave it there. Thank you.
