Lifetime has given a renewal to a long-running drama series, Deadline.com reports. Premiering in 2013 will be season seven of “Army Wives.”
The network ordered 13 episodes. Season six, in which the series delivered an average of 3.2 million viewers, wrapped up Sept. 9. The number is down from the show’s peak, but still a solid performance.
The show stars Kim Delaney and Catherine Bell, and is based on the book “Army Wives: The Unwritten Code of Military Marriage,” by Tanya Biank. Biank is a consulant on the series.
Word is still out on whether Lifetime will bring back “Drop Dead Diva,” the story notes.
