Brooke Shields will join Lifetime's "Army Wives" for Season 7, the network announced Thursday.
She'll star alongside other new faces for the upcoming season, including Ashanti, Torrey DeVitto and Elle McLemore, while former series regular Kim Delaney will depart the show.
According to the Lifetime release, Shields will portray brash and brilliant Air Force Colonel Katherine “Kat” Young. A crack C-17 pilot who can hold her own in the boys club atmosphere of the military, she’s hardly touched down in her new assignment at Joint Base Marshall Bring before she clashes with Army General Michael Holden (Brian McNamara). Never one to step away from a fight, Kat is a fierce advocate for the Air Force as she and Holden jockey for their respective branches at the highest levels of power on base. Only after their initial skirmishes does Holden learn of Kat’s tragic past, discovering they have more in common than he thought.
"Army Wives" returns on Sunday, March 10 at 9 p.m. E
