Lifetime has picked-up scripted drama Army Wives for a seventh season, with an order for 13 new episodes in 2013. Army Wives, which follows a diverse group of women – and one man – who live with their spouses and loved ones on an active army post, averaged 3.2 million viewers this season and dominated its primary time period on cable among women 18+.
“Army Wives is a very special program,” said Rob Sharenow, EVP, Programming of Lifetime Networks. “It’s rare to find a series that connects with viewers and resonates so powerfully after six straight seasons, and we couldn’t be prouder to have it return to Lifetime next year.”
The sixth season of Army Wives starred Kim Delaney, Sally Pressman, Brian McNamara, Sterling K. Brown, Wendy Davis, Drew Fuller, Terry Serpico, Kelli Williams and Catherine Bell, and also featured Kellie Martin, Alyssa Diaz and JJ Soria.
