We hope you're sitting down, Army Wives. The Lifetime hit has revealed a major, fatal Season 7 spoiler.
As previously rumored, Kim Delaney will not be returning to the series, as producer Jeff Melvoin tells TV Line the character of Claudia Joy Holden will be killed off on the season premiere.
“The first two [episodes] will be very emotional, and it will confirm that Claudia Joy is no longer among the living,” Melvoin says. “It’s been very wrenching for us to write, and I think it will be very wrenching for the audience to go through.
“Kim and Claudia Joy have been the rock upon which we based the show. But we [have to] continue to move forward and keep the show fresh and unpredictable.”
Visit TV Line for plenty more Army Wives scoop, which includes:
- Sally Pressman, who is pregnant in real life, will only appear in a few early season episodes.
- Despite Claudia Joy's death, Brian McNamara will be sticking around as Michael.
- A trio of new female characters will be introduced, all of whom have husbands serving in Afghanistan.
Whew. Talk about a number of changes. Sound off now on them, TV Fanatics.
