Desperate Housewives

[Warning: This story contains major spoilers about the upcoming death on Desperate Housewives. Read at your own risk.]

The drama on Wisteria Lane has come out in open court — and we're not talking about whether Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry "hit" or "tapped" former cast member Nicollette Sheridan, who is suing Cherry for firing her allegedly after she complained about having been struck.

While testifying Thursday in court, series line producer George Perkins let slip that Sheridan's Edie Britt is not the most high-profile character to be killed off the show. That honor goes to — another spoiler warning to be safeJames Denton's Mike Delfino, who according to Perkins will meet his demise in this Sunday's episode of the ABC primetime soap, as first reported by Entertainment Weekly.

Which major Desperate Housewives character will die? The 8 potential victims

When news broke in January that the grim reappear would be paying a visit to Wisteria Lane, Mike Delfino was at the top of TVGuide.com's list of potential victims due to the fact that producers haven't really known what to do with Denton's character in recent years. It will also bring Teri Hatcher's Susan Delfino, full circle from the opening of the series, where her character was hopelessly single.

In recent episodes, Mike has been dealing with the dangerous mob that has targeted both Ben (Charles Mesure) and lady love Renee (Vanessa Williams). Apparently, things will take a turn for the worst.

Desperate Housewives airs Sundays 9/8c on ABC.
