Lifetime Re-enlists ‘Army Wives’ for Season Three

Lifetime CEO Andrea Wong said the cable network’s hit series “Army Wives” will be coming back for third season.

The third season of the series will be comprised of 18 episodes and kicks off in 2009.

Now in the middle of its second year, “Army Wives” is the No. 1 cable show in Lifetime’s key demographics of women 25 to 54 and women 18 to 49.

“Since premiering last year, ‘Army Wives’ has become a game-changer for Lifetime. Announcing this early renewal is a testament to the enormous faith and confidence we have in this show and its incredibly talented cast and production team,” Ms. Wong said. “‘Army Wives’ exemplifies what Lifetime is all about—friendship, compassion, humor and heart. We are very proud of both its water cooler resonance and its success.”

I am 57 and love the show! Everyone knows where I will be on Sunday night at 9 o'clock...I get the big screen TV for the show (HA!) I have my husband watching it too! Kind of reminds me of my college days where we all planned our schedules in order to watch "All My Children". Love it! Keep up the excellent writing and choice of actors. (Roxie is so cute and her husband is one handsome young man). I sure enjoy those characters!

Sharon Berger:

Last night I watched Army Wives and I noticed that the American Flag patch on their uniforms was incorrect. I always understood that the Stars on the American Flag are always on the upper left. Last night every patch of the American Flag had the stars on the patch on the upper right hand side.

How do I get in touch with the producers of Army Wives to have this horrific error corrected if this is in fact an error.

Rebecca Harding:

I am 26 The first season of army wives has just finished in the uk and i couldn't wait to see what happened so thatnk to you tube i have just found out and i have to admit i cried lots.
I love the show please keep the seasons coming as the t.v in the uk leaves alot to be desired and it also gives me chance to get the remote of my husband for an hour!

Christina:

Actually, "The regulation states that when authorized for application to the proper uniform the American flag patch is to be worn, right or left shoulder, so that “the star field faces forward, or to the flag’s own right. When worn in this manner, the flag is facing to the observer’s right, and gives the effect of the flag flying in the breeze as the wearer moves forward. The appropriate replica for the right shoulder sleeve is identified as the ‘reverse side flag’.”

Katie:

The American Flag on their uniforms is correct. That's how it is in the Army, but you are right about the stars typically being on the left.

an ARMY WIFE:

Sharon- Don't bother contacting anyone to correct the uniforms. The flag is correct. The flag is supposed to be "flying" back as the soldier goes toward battle. Their uniforms are correct. Aside from them not having unit badges or pins to signify schools or courses taken, their uniforms are (almost) up to code with military standard. The best they can be without being sponsored by the US ARMY.

Susie T:

I loved to watching army wives. I never miss a show. I got my sister and niece to watch it to. I haven't seen a good show like that for along time. Now since it's over I'm sad because I won't be able to watch it every sunday night. when season 3 comes on i will be watching it. i'm going to go out and buy season 1 and 2 once i see it. I can watch army wives everyday. Thank you for reading my comment.

Kayla:

i love army wives. My boyfriend is deployed to iraq right now and its hard. But he actually likes the show to.. and he is not a lifetime watcher. Thank you for airing a show that women with spouses in the military or even boyfriends in the military can relate to.

Army Wife:

I love this show! Me and my husband watch it every sunday night, and we are sad that the season is over with. It gives people some idea of what Army life is really like, so hopefully people will understand more. I hope that people just don't pay attention to what Denise does while her husband is deployed and see that their are wives that do stand behind their husbands and stay faithful. Not all Military spouses are nasty and sleep with everybody! Thank you Lifetime for having ArmyWives!

A girl that loves Army Wives:

I LOVE THIS SHOW HALF TO DEATH. At first I was beginning to think that this would be another "lifetime" drama. But I was amazed of how wonderful and heartwarming this show is. I am SOOOOO excited that it is coming back for a third season, I practically almost fell on the floor with happiness! I LOVE THIS AMAZING show.

Bonz:

Sharon Berger,

The flag on the uniforms are correct, research some military history; there is a reason why the flags are backwards which dates back to the Civil War. And on top of all that it is illegal to wear a uniform up to military regs if you are not in the military. Another reason why you will find mistakes with military uniforms on TV and movies. Many of them are on purpose.

Army_Wives Fanatic:

I'm 21and I ABSOLUTELY ADORE this show!! It's my favorite show and the only one that I will never miss!! I think that Denise is being an idiot now and needs to wake up and smell the coffee. I'm so worried that something is going to happen to Jeremy in Iraq to pull Frank & Denise back together.. Emmaline& logan are going to get in a fight and he is going to drop her off at a pay phone somehwere or something and the Holden's aren't going to move Brussells. Which will keep Joan as Lietutant Colonel and Pamela will get her radio show "have at it back" and Trevor will get deployed..then all will be right on post.. DOes anybody know the date for season 3 return or season 2 to be on dvd? i already got season 1.

June:

OMG!!! I LOVE THIS SHOW, NO ONE CAN TAKE ME AWAY FROM THE TV WHEN ARMY WIVES IS GOING 2 BEGIN. I DIDNT GET 2 SEE SEASON 1 BUT MY HUSBAND IS GOING 2 BUY IT FOR ME THAT WAY I CAN SEE IT, AND AS SOON AS SEASON 2 COMES OUT I WILL BUY THAT 1 ALSO...THE CHARACTERS ARE AWESOME AND I LOVE ROXIE & TREVOR, THEIR THE BEST. I CANT WAIT 2 SEE WHAT HAPPENS WITH EMMALIN & LOGAN. AND I CANT BELIEVE THAT DENSISE SLEPT WITH MAC...AND THAT FRANK SLEPT WITH THAT LADY, AND I FEEL BAD FOR HIS SON BC HE SAW THEM TOGETHER. ANYWAYS, KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK THAT YOU ALL HAVE DONE SO FAR. IM SO EXCITED FOR SEASON 3..YES!!!

STEPHANIE MERTSCH:

I LOVE ARMY WIVES. WHAT DOES EVERBODY THINK ABOUT DENISE AND HER NEW MAN? I CAN'T BELIEVE SHE DID THAT,BUT DENISE HAS BEEN A GOOD GIRL FOR SO LONG BEING UNDER FRANK I GUESS ITS TIME FOR HER TO REBEL. EMMLYN I THINK WILL MARRY LOGAN. I THINK IT WILL BE AWHILE FOR C. HOLDEN TO GET HIS POST BACK, I FEEL THE NEW PEOPLE ARE DIRTY. JOAN I THINK WILL GO TO OFF TO IRAG. ROXY IS GOING TO LOOSE THE BAR. I CAN'T BELIEVE HOW SOFT JOAN GOT WHEN SHE HAD HER BABY. THEY SHOULD HAVE CHASE ON THE SHOW MORE.

Joni Langford:

Just wanted to let Sharon know that the flag is not incorrect. The patch is displayed as if the flag is waving or flying as the soldier moves, for the troops on a tour, and once home and off orders the other patch in which the flag faces the other way is worn. My husband just came home and I asked him why is was wrong and he explained it to me. It's also due to the fact that you can't wear a military uniform up to regulation if your not regulation military, but they get it near enough!.We got married Dec 31 2007 and he left Jan 7 2008 so this show has made the weeks fly by while he was gone but unlike Roxy and Trevor we had known each other longer than 17days. I can't wait to see what happens next season! Logan is going to get in a big heap of trouble....she is 16!!! CAN'T WAIT!!!

amazing show!:

I love the relationships the characters of army wives have with each other. It's hard to find true friends.But what is truelly amazing is "Army Wives give back" everyone thinks about the soldier and what he/she is going through, which is great, but it's great someone is also thinking of the families who might not know where their loved ones are or what situation they are in. All I want to know is when can I buy season 2 and when is season 3 coming out?

ARMY WIFE:

Hey to all you civilians. I am an Army wife and I noticed a lady commented about the American flag being worn "incorrectly" on the soldier's uniform. She had made the comment that the stars were in the upper right hand corner instead of the upper left.
I wanted to let you all know that this IS the way the military wears the American flag on their uniform. The flag is "backwards" on the uniform. The reasoning behind this (I'm not sure of exact regulations but it's an Army regulation I know) is that it is to give the appearance of the flag "blowing in the wind" while the soldier is walking. Grab a soldier and check out the flag on his shoulder. You'll see what I mean.
Believe me I've been an Army wife for 3 years and I've been all over my husband's uniform many times (which is probably how our daughter got here). The soldiers(cast) are not wearing the flag wrong on their uniform. They are actually wearing it exactly right.
Also, for those of you who are just curious, they have the ranks labeled and referred to correctly as well as the protocols. It is true that a General is not allowed to socialize with a Private and would be considered completely unacceptable for a Gen's daughter to date a Pvt.
If you are ever curious about how the "real" Army life is, just grab your remote and switch it to Lifetime. The writers and producers did an outstanding job of portraying the drama that goes on in our lives and on post all the way from the close best friends to the cheating wives (and soldiers).
Thank you Lifetime. You have not only made a hit tv series, in a way you have also contributed to the military and made us feel more appreciated than what you know. My husband is deployed to Iraq right now and when I watch the episodes it doesn't matter what happens I cry like a baby.

I do hope this clears up the confusion about the flag being "wrong". Lifetime is exactly right. That is the way the soldiers wear them.

Army Wife:

The flag is supposed to be that way. flag is worn forward to signify that the Army never retreats

On phone right now with my Army husband!!!

Zack:

I began watching army wives from season 2 with my who has seen the first and second season and I have to say I can't wait to see the next season cause they always leave you in a cliffhanger but something that would be great would be them to bring back amanda the one who died at the begging of the second season after being in the bar when the bomb went off and just make it where she was taken into protective custody by the military and then another good thing would be where trevor and roxie end up preganant with twins or triplets that would be so great.

Army Girlfriend:

First of all I love this show. I wouldn't watch it at first but just before the start of season 2 I sat and watched all of season 1 in one day to make sure I was prepared.
About the flag thing, it is correct but some of the things having to do with their uniform or some other small things you might not even notice...according to my boyfriend who asked his CO why some of the things they do in tv and on the show arent quite right well since they actors are not official SOLDIERS they are required to do some things incorrectly so as not to portray something that they are not.
Im not saying Im 100% correct on this I just wanted to voice something that my bf's Commanding Officer said.
I can't wait for season 3!!!

Brittany:

I am 16 and I watch every single episode. I feel as though I have known the cast memebers forever...kinda like their my friends and everytime a season ends it sadens me to watch them go. When will season 2 be out in stores and when do they plan to have season 3 on the air ? if anyone knows could you tell me.

Proud Army Wife::

Just wanted to let everyone know I did see that the new Third season will be airing in June of 09. I can't wait. It really kind of helps me feel closer to my HS when he is deployed.

Annie Baker:

Army Wives is a brilliant show! I have never been so caught up in a television series. Lifetime is one of the few channels I watch daily. The shows really draw the viewers in. I feel as if I know the characters personally. Keep up the good work. I am a huge fan, and I also got my husband hooked on the show. He works on Sunday nights, but I call him during every commercial break and fill him in on each segment. Thank you for creating a show that so many of us can enjoy!

Another Army Wife:

Can someone else please explain to me why the flag is backwards? I think all 500 posts on here that say exactly the same thing don't explain it enough...sheesh people, leave poor Sharon alone! I'm sure she gets it now!

krystal:

Yay!
I am so glad they are keeping it going!
I love this show!!!
SO when is the new season going to start???!!!

michelle:

Army wive is one of the bestest shows i ever watch which is one of my fav shows. does anyone know when the new season going to be back on this year for 2009 show. roxie and her husband is my fav in the show i love them guys roxie is so pretty and her husband is so hot.

don tiberio sr sfc us army (ret):

I really like the series of "Army Wives". I was in the US Army thru Vietnam, Grenada and Desert STrom and have been married for 34 years (Yes, Iknow, trees dont live that longm ha ha), I spent twenty five of those years in uniform and I miss it very m uch. My wife Jeanne has seen it and from her stand point, some of the comraderie between officers and enlisted wives surprised her because when we were on post, you did not see any of that, because folks were "into themselves". I really like the portrayal and I really Like Sally .I think she does a marvelous job and she is really fiesty, I like that. I also like Katherine Bell on the show and I wish I would get a real email from both of them. I really do like the show a lot. The scene of when the bar was blown up in series #1, really got to me. It was sad cause I lost a couple of friends in Desert STorm to an exploding grenade. My wife Jeanne is also a MASTER TRAINER IF Family Support, which is now FAMILY READINESS GROUP. SHe has four years experience in that and she's very smart too.

As a guy, I wish there could be a couple of "catfights" in the upcoming series. please have a couple of the stars email me if they can. WHen does series 3 kick off? Good Luck to all of the cast and crew. You represent us well. I hope there are a lot more series and you dont get cancelled. Love you ALL

SFC DON TIBERIO (ret)

ps I also liked Katherine Bell in "JAG". I always wonder why her and Harm never, you know, tied the knot?

Amy Abbott:

I love Army Wives! This is the only show I watcg faithfully. I was wondering when the 2nd season is coming out on DVD? I am anxious to watch it (even if I watched every episode. When is the 3rd season starting ? I love this show and look forward to this season.

Amy

Michael Bradford:

The flag patch you refer to is a reverse field flag Sharon. This is how they appear on the Army Field Uniform. It's legit!

Teddi :

For those people asking for clarification on the flag patch, here is a website that explains why the stars on the flag, when worn on the right shoulder only, look backward. The FRONT is the place of highest honor. This website explains it very well.

Bonnie:

Due to the uniforms being wrong. A tv show is not allowed to have the military uniforms correct. So there for they have to make something different on the uniforms worn on Tv. Im sure they know, and I sure they did it on purpose.

Mrs B - Navy Wife:

I am a Navy wife 35 years old, I found Army Wives to be a great release for me, some episodes I would cry, some I would laugh and some I would scream "OH MY GOODNESS THAT HAPPENED TO ME!!" I find the series pretty true to form, this is how in many ways us Military wives are and what our day to day life is about.

Thank you to the creator, producers and the actors who have bought a wonderful show to air that actually relates to Military Wives out there. I cannot wait until session 3!! It certainly makes my day especially when my husband is deployed for long periods of time!

dj:

Army Wives is a fun show to watch, but not very realistic. First off, Denise would have to move out of base housing within 30-60 days once they became legally separated. Also, in the military, adultery is illegal even if you are separated. Until that divorce is final, it's against the UCMJ and he could be in BIG trouble. Also, it's a bit hypocritical for Gen Holden to deny his daughter's boyfriend a dinner invitation because of "protocol", when his wife is best buds with 2 enlisted men's spouses. I am an Air Force spouse who's husband was enlisted and now is an officer.
There is a definite line in the sand and it's tough to cross over. It's sad, but true. There is NO way that the commanding officer's wife would spend that much time with enlisted wive's. Heck, when my husband was a commander, I was "taught" at command school that I couldn't even by Tupperware from someone junior in rank, including other officer's wives. So, the show is entertaining, but kind of sad that civilians fall for it. It's not accurate. By the way, I currently live in Brussels and I have advice for Claudia Joy. STAY HOME. It's not what you think it is.

dj:

Sorry, I meant "buy" Tupperware. I was typing too fast, lol.

ProudArmyWife:

dj what you posted in you comment is exactley why officers wives get such bad names!! I am an enlisted wife and have a few officer wives as friends, the code you are talking about only applies to the soldier him or herself. Not the family members we dont have RANK!!!!

Haley:

when does season 3 start?????
i luv this t.v show!!

Nikki:

I am 19, and I came to love this show as a result of my boyfriend [ at the time ] being away at basic for the US Marine Corp. Now I am hooked and cannot stop watching it. I cannot wait for the 3rd season to kick off. It cannot come soon enough for me haha. I feel like I can relate to the woman waiting on their men, and it really makes the life of a military wife, husband, girlfriend, boyfriend REAL. AMAZING SHOW.

Army Wife:

To the woman who are upset about the things that are wrong with the uniforms: The reason why there are errors with the uniforms on the show is because it is illegal to impersonate a soldier in the US Army. There have to be somethings that are incorrect.

I LOVE this show. I can't wait for Season 3.

Veronica:

I am 18 years old and I have loved this show from day one. Now that the show isnt on right now i am going through withdraw. i cant wait till season 3 comes on. i have the first season on dvd and i watch that sometimes, but i need to see what is going to happen. i want to see what is going to happen wih denise and frank, if they actually get a divrce or not. but i dont want them to get a divorce because then denise would have to leave the post and that would totally suck. and if they can work things out i think they could be a good couple again. i also want to know what is gonna happen with emalin, if michael is gonna get her to come back or not. also i think that claudia joy is devastated because she already lost one daughter now she is losing the other one. i also dont think that they should leave to go to brussles because the friends that she has, they all have a close bond. it just wont be the same without claudia joy. also they cant leave without emalin so i dont think there gonna leave anytime soon.

Stephanie:

Stephanie:I love the show i cant wait till it starts up again.Its like i kn them for real and i feel there pain. I watch all of the episode.I even have the 1season on dvd and plan on gettin the 2season to.I know the 3season will be even awsome!I and my bestfriend love watching them together.Keep the show going.

Chasity:

Hi I am 26 years old and I absolutely love this show. I get so into it that no one can take me away from the television when it is on. I love it so much that I have it on my I Pod because i just love all the actors and my favorites are Roxy and Trevor. They are like my ideal relationship. They love eachother and he is so sweet with her. I am looking forward to season 3. Does anyone know when it begins?

Molly:

Thanks to the few who have commented on whether or not this show is reflective of reality. I love the show, but recognize that it might not be 100% realistic. 100% reality could be pretty boring on TV!

wendi:

people Sharon i am sure has read at least 10 of the many comments and understands about the flag... I didn't know that and i am married to a soldier and a sister of one. so just drop it.

me:

DJ: The fraternization rule only applies to the military personel, not to their spouses. I am a JAG's wife and am very familiar with the the UCMJ on this topic as we attempt to hold it in the highest regard in our household discussing it and it's laws commonly.... due to the frequency with which the topics from it arise in my husband's profession and daily practice. If an officer's wife chooses not to make friends with an enlisted person's spouse,.. that is OK to do and above and beyond what is expected... still it is not against any laws or lawful orders to do so.

TONI :

I THIS SHOW BECAUSE IT BRINGS OUT ALOT OF FEELING OUT....... I REMEMBER MY GRANDPA WHEN I WATCH THIS SHOW BECAUSE HE WAS IN THE ARMY... I WILL REMEMBER HIM EVERYDAY AND EVERY TIME I WATCH THIS SHOW.. THANKS FOR MAKING A GREAT SHOW LIKE THIS....

Kristen:

Barbara Jo:

Katie:

I am 18 and I am an Army Wife. My husband has been in the army for two years. He's reserves now but he's going through the process of switching to active duty. I hope when we move to post I find good friends like the show portrays!!! I've watched every episode from the beginning to now and it's killing me having to wait!!! Does anyone know when season 3 starts???? I have to know!!!

Tiffany:

i'm a huge fan of the show, being a military wife myself, i really enjoyed it will my husband was on tour for 22 mos. in iraq, it was tough, and i could REALLY relate to different topics on the show. keep this show going...i love it!!!

AWFAN:

Sorry about all the duplicate posts above!! I don't know how that happened...

Thor:

For those who have questions about the uniforms on the show, please allow me to address those. MOST times the stars on the flag go in the upper left corner. However on Military uniforms the stars go in the upper right. This is acurate as I am a soldier. There are a million theories as to why that is but per regulations they are correctly worn.
