According to EW.com, the show will be honored with a two-hour retrospective special with cast members that will air in early 2014. The series completed its final season in June.
"There is no denying how special 'Army Wives' has been to both Lifetime and the television landscape," Rob Sharenow, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Lifetime, said in a statement. "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."
He added: "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."
"Army Wives" underwent several cast changes throughout its run, with Catherine Bell and Wendy Davis as the only original cast members remaining at the end of Season 7.
The show stood as the longest-running series on Lifetime to date. It was also one of the network's top-rated dramas through its third, fourth and fifth seasons, but dipped significantly during its sixth and seventh runs.
"Army Wives" was based on the book "Under the Sabers: The Unwritten Code of Army Wives" by Tanya Biank, who served as a consultant.
