'Army Wives' re-ups for seventh season

Looks as if that "Army Wives" cliffhanger wasn't a freefall, anyway.

Lifetime announced Friday that it had renewed the series -- "the No. 1 ad-supported cable series in its premiere time period" among women 18 and older -- for a seventh, 13-episode season.

Which should certainly be long enough to land that plane safely, assuming that the plan isn't to wipe out a good chunk of the cast from Season 6.

What wasn't clear from Friday's announcement was exactly who would be back for next season. Roxborough's Kim Delaney, whose character, Claudia Joy, was apparently elsewhere toward the end of the season, is listed among the stars of Season 6.

Which could just mean that there aren't deals in place with the entire cast yet. Or could mean that more of the "Wives" are moving on.
