After seven seasons, Lifetime's Army Wives has received the ax.

The series, which stared Wendy Davis (Joan Bruton) and Catherine Bell (Denise Sherwood), will receive a two hour special in lieu of an eighth season. Serving as a retrospective, the 2014 special will not function as an episode, but will instead feature discussions with the show's long-serving actors, according to Deadline.

"There is no denying how special Army Wives has been to both Lifetime and the television landscape," said Lifetime Executive Vice President and General Manager Rob Sharenow, according to the Los Angeles Times. "By taking on a very relevant and timely issue, it has brilliantly captured the challenges our military families endure and the bravery they and their loved ones display while serving our country."

Set in South Carolina, Army Wives took a look at the lives of both the military personnel who serve America as well as their families and the broad range of issues unique to such a dynamic.

"[The show is] really about the families," Bell said of the ABC produced show, according to She Knows Entertainment. "No matter what the soldiers are doing, it's just about the life at home really and how we're coping, so I think the audience responds to that."

While Army Wives was one of Lifetimes mainstays, the network will be premiering Witches of East End on Oct. 6 and saw a successful summer with the first season of Devious Maids which will return next year.
