Well, this picture is really going to change.
Army Wives is not down and out. The Lifetime show has added several new cast members for the upcoming 7th season, currently in production.
The addition of Jesse McCartney, Nashville actor Burgess Jenkins and Broadway star Joshua Henry was announced after Ashanti, Torrey DeVitto and Elle McLemore signed on late last year.
Now Brooke Shields is checking into to the new Joint Base Marshall (formerly Army post Fort Marshall) as an Air Force C-17 pilot. Her character, Kat Young, will go toe-to-toe with General Holden over Army/Air Force issues. This seems realistic as more real life military installations share space with other branches, hence the ‘Joint Base‘ name change.
Sally Pressman, ‘Roxy’, is moving from her regular to recurring role and Kim Delaney is leaving the show.
Will this re-birth of Army Wives be enough to keep it running past the upcoming season? Tune in for the premiere episode in March.
