In addition, Army Wives has been the highest-rated original drama on ad-supported cable among Women 18-49 for two consecutive years.

"Next season of Army Wives promises to be one of its best ever and we are very excited to bring it back to Lifetime's viewers in April," said JoAnn Alfano, Executive Vice President, Entertainment, of Lifetime Networks. "Scheduling Army Wives' return for the spring falls in line with our strategy to provide our audience with a steady stream of original programming year-round."
