Said Rob Sharenow, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Lifetime, via statement:

"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.

"It has been an honor to be the home of Army Wives.  We also want to thank Army Wives’ passionate legion of fans and everyone involved with the series: ABC Studios, Mark Gordon and Jeff Melvoin, Tanya Biank, every single cast member, as well as the crew and community of Charleston, South Carolina.  Without their dedication, effort and loyalty, Army Wives’ seven wonderful seasons would not have been possible; and for that we are very grateful.”

The series received many accolades, during its run, including a pair of Gracie Awards from the Alliance for Women in Media, a Sentinel for Health Award from the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism’s Norman Lear Center, as well as an NAACP Image Award, NAMIC Award and Prism Award nominations.

I love Army Wives and have watched every episode this far but this year I was REALLY looking forward to it coming on. My husband will be deploying for the first time this year and all I have been thinking about was how Army Wives will help me get through at least a portion of this deployment- now I don't have that. How very disappointing.

Are you serious????????????? Lifetime is canceling one of the most popular shows that has aired on their channel. Millions of fans wait for the series to start and are devoted when it is one. HUGE MISTAKE!!!! I hope another channel will be smart enough to air it on their channel.

How disappointing! Army wives is a spectacular show. And it touches the lives of our military families to know there is a show telling the world what kind of lives they live. And it gives civilian families an insight of the sacrifices of military families.
Not many tv shows keep my interest, but I looked forward to each episode. Give the show back to our military families and keep our country's eyes open to their lives by continuing to tell their story.

I cannot fathom how Lifetime can take a show as great as Army Wives off the air and leave Dance Moms on!
