‘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!
