I didn't see a thread for these season yet so I'm making one. I am catching up on my army wives on Netflix started with season 1 back in December now on season 5 getting ready for the premiere of 6 on march 6th lol! I absolutely love this show and I can't help but keep watching
I used to watch this show all the time. Then I got rid of cable and haven't been able to watch it for two years. I'm bummed. I was at my mom's and saw their promo for the new season "one of the wives won't weather the storm" thing. WHAT!? I've missed so much!
Just watched the episode from April 1st and am really upset that something is wrong with Claudia Joy. I love her and Michael and whatever it is she has doesn't look good from the previews for next week. Anyone have any ideas?
It looked like Army Wives might be coming to an end after six seasons. Now, it turns out that last night’s cliffhanger season ending might be a good sign for season seven.
Series star Catherine Bell has noted that, while Army Wives hasn’t been cancelled, it hasn’t been renewed yet either. Via her Twitter account, Bell said that the cast and crew filmed two endings for the season six finale which was filmed in June. Presumably one that would wrap up the show and another that would serve as a cliffhanger to lead into season seven.
Though Army Wives hasn’t been renewed, Bell hints that it’s “kind of a good sign” that Lifetime went with the cliffhanger ending instead of the tidy one.
If the Lifetime show does indeed come back, you can be sure that Bell will be a part of it. The actress signed a new two year deal with the studio back in May. It potentially commits her to two more seasons of the show and gives her a significant salary increase.
Who else would be returning? That seems to be up in the air since none of the other original Army Wives castmembers have contracts now that season six is over. If Lifetime wants them back, they’ll have to renegotiate salaries and that will presumably drive production costs.
That may explain why so many characters were left in jeopardy in the sixth season finale. If deals can’t be reached, Army Wives could return with several new faces. We’ll keep you posted as we hear more
