Lifetime Cancels Long-Running Series LA Times
A long-running Lifetime drama series has come to the end of its run. The Los Angeles Times' Show Tracker reports that the cable channel has canceled "Army Wives" after seven seasons.
Fans will get some closure as the network plans a two-hour retrospective early next year, the report notes.
The series, which starred Wendy Davis, Catherine Bell and Brian McNamara, never earned the kind of buzz generated by AMC's "Breaking Bad," but it did earn some awards, such as two Gracie Awards, the piece notes.
In a statement, Lifetime General Manager Rob Sharenow said: "There is no denying how special 'Army Wives' has been to both Lifetime and the television landscape. By taking on a very relevant and timely issue, it has brilliantly captured the challenges our military families endure and the bravery they and their loved ones display while serving our country."
The series' seventh season, which ended in June, was its last.
