‘Army Wives’ is saluting off for good! The heartfelt drama wraps its seven season run with a two hour reunion special tonight. HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY caught up with the cast to get the final scoop!

Lifetime’s hit drama Army Wives is marching off the air. After seven years together, the ladies sit down for a retrospective reunion special and pay their respects to America’s real-life heroes. 

‘Army Wives’ Pays Respect to U.S. Heroes In Reunion Special

Kim Delaney, Sally Pressman, Brigid Brannagh, Wendy Davis, Sterling K. Brown, Brian McNamara, Terry Serpico, Drew Fuller and Jeremy Davidson all reunite on Sunday, March 16 (9/8c) to say goodbye to their wildly successful series, Army Wives.

We caught up with the series’ star, Wendy Davis, who shared her gratitude for America’s real heroes, plus her costars on the show.

“The reunion show [tonight] is a chance for us to collectively share how deeply we appreciate the men and women who serve our country and the families that love and support them,” Wendy told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Being part of Army Wives was magical. We all knew it was a special show because of the stories and extraordinary people we represented.”

Executive Producer Jeff Melvoin chimed in, EXCLUSIVELY telling HollywoodLife.com, “It was a privilege to represent a unique and largely ignored slice of our population who serve our country.  They sacrifice a lot.”

‘Army Wives’ Final Salute: The Series Says Goodbye After 7 Seasons

“One thing we learned from the actual army wives we got to know through making the series is that the bonds created in the military last a lifetime.,” Jeff told HollywoodLife.com. “That’s how the Army Wives cast, crew, and writers came to feel about each other, as well.  You can see it in the special.”

Fans of the drama will be happy to spend two final hours with the Army Wives family. “We used to say a good episode contained a tear, a hug, and a smile,” Jeff adds. “You get plenty of each in the special, which is a fitting sendoff to a series that touched all of us who worked on it in a special way.”

God bless America!

HollywoodLifers, are you sad to see Army Wives march off the air? Let us know what you will miss about the show!

Just found out about Army Wives: The Final Salute. Needless to say I missed it. I can’t find it anywhere to watch or buy. Keep getting the run-around. I am very disappointed with Lifetime. Don’t feel that it was advertised, and it’s not available on their site to watch. Really would like to know a way I can watch the show. I’m even willing to buy it on DVD.

I just don’t understand why they have to keep the crappy shows on the air, but take the good ones off. I really enjoyed watching Army Wives and was really looking forward to the new season. I also missed the Final Salute. This is just sad and it really does suck. What is really going on with T.V. these days. They try to get us to watch, but they take off all the good stuff. What’s up with that?? :(

I would like to know why Catherine Bell was not at the cast reunion/finale. She didn’t do a commentary segment either. Thought it was very strange.
