Attention! Army Wives back in training

Army WivesCynopsis reports that now that the writers' strike is over -- hallelujah! -- Lifetime Television will soon begin production on the second season of Army Wives with episodes scheduled to air in early summer. This is great news for fans of the Lifetime original drama series that was a ratings juggernaut when it premiered last summer. In fact, Army Wives was the most successful series in Lifetime's 23-year history! During its 13-episode run, Army Wives was the highest rated drama on cable among women, establishing new Lifetime marks for an original scripted series. The soapy-drama was scheduled to return in April, but then the writers struck and the show has been in hibernation -- I mean, hiatus -- ever since.

With familiar TV faces heading up the cast, including Catherine Bell (JAG) and Kim Delaney (NYPD Blue), Army Wives was a bit of a surprise success. Not many in the know anticipated a "Desperate Housewives in military fatigues" would capture the hearts and minds of viewers, but it did. Said Susanne Daniels, President, Entertainment, Lifetime Networks: "It is incredibly gratifying when a critically acclaimed show is also a successful show, and we are grateful to the four million loyal viewers who tuned in every Sunday to make this series a huge hit for Lifetime." And now all four million -- and more -- can look forward to a summer-filled with fresh, new episodes.

I think this show is absolutely true in alot of aspects of the true Army Wives....I should know I am one.....and my girlfriends watch this show as well...they are army wives too. So we enjoy seeing the real life with a lil bit more drama attached to it, show wouldn't you want a show about you. I was amazed when I heard that there was going to be a show about Army Wives I was excited to see it..and what do you know I was addicted from the first episode!! As far as having more seasons...I hope we get several to watch....I was getting worried that we weren't gonna have another season......THANK YOU!!!

I can't wait! I'm sooooo sick of reality t.v. . Finally something worth watching! I found this by accident while channel surfing last year. This show should be advertised more this year. I bet the following will be even larger. I'm not a military wife or anything close so I can't relate to their lives but the story plots are so well written that it touches your life even if your an old grandmother and you find it gives you something to think about. Like just what the wives go through as well as the men in uniform. It's not just what our news wants us to hear. CARRY ON11111111
