Lifetime hit series Army Wives kicks off a third season at 10 p.m. on Sunday, June 7.
The series, Lifetime's biggest ever, was seen by more than 80 million total viewers in its second season. The finale, last Nov. 2, was Lifetime's highest-rated and most-watched original drama telecast ever among adults ages 18-34. Since its premiere in 2007, Army Wives has consistently set ratings records in households and all key female demographics and has already been picked up for a fourth season.
Army Wives follows the struggles, dreams and friendships of a diverse group of women - and one man - living with their spouses and families on an active army post. It films in Charleston, S.C., and stars Kim Delaney, Sally Pressman, Brigid Brannagh, Brian McNamara, Sterling K. Brown, Wendy Davis, Drew Fuller, Terry Serpico, Katelyn Pippy and Catherine Bell.
Season 3 opens with the Army wives banding together to support Claudia Joy (Kim Delaney) after her daughter, Emmalin (Katelyn Pippy), disappears on the eve of the family's imminent overseas transfer. As Claudia Joy prepares to uproot her entire life for her husband's new job (Brian McNamara), she struggles to remain strong for all of those around her. Roxy (Sally Pressman), fighting to hold onto her bar, is forced to reevaluate the business and the emotional toll it's taking on her. Pamela (Brigid Brannagh), whose husband is often away on assignment, must be both mother and father to her children. New father Roland (Sterling K. Brown) wrestles with the news of Joan's (Wendy Davis) deployment, and Denise (Catherine Bell) faces devastating consequences when her affair becomes the talk of the post.
As all of these events unfold, Claudia Joy, Roxy, Pamela, Roland and Denise navigate their friendship while continuing to face the unique challenges of being Army wives.
