ABC is ready to leave Wisteria Lane. The upcoming eighth season of Desperate Housewives will be its last, a source confirms.
Is this the end for Desperate Housewives?
ABC will make the official announcement Sunday during the network's fall TV previews and is currently in the process of....
Felicity Huffman, Desperate Housewives
When last seen on Desperate Housewives, Lynette Scavo (Felicity Huffman) was in the midst of another horrible night, though this was really worse than most. She and estranged husband Tom (Doug Savant) were putting on a happy front at a neighborhood dinner party that culminated with the Wisteria Lane ladies hiding a dead body in a trunk.
Felicity tells me that the September 25 season premiere will look a lot like the memorable 9 to 5 sequence when Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton comically conspired to hide a corpse, as Lynette, Susan (Teri Hatcher), Bree (Marcia Cross) and Gaby (Eva Longoria) come together to cover up Carlos' murder of Gaby's sexually abusive stepfather.
"The whole first episode is about them being accomplices in this murder and actually burying this body," previews Felicity...
The ladies of Wisteria Lane might want to call in the moving vans. ABC and the producers behind long-running Sunday-night soap Desperate Housewives could decide in a few weeks if the show's upcoming eighth season will be its last.
Creator Marc Cherry and executive producer Bob Daily are both signed to remain with the series through the season, as well as a potential ninth season. But rumblings have started that...
Jonathan Cake, Desperate Housewives
Jonathan Cake knew from the moment he first stepped onto Wisteria Lane that he was in for a wild ride on Desperate Housewives with his new co-star, Marcia Cross.
"She was wielding an enormous gun," Cake tells TVGuide.com, "which I thought was a great way to meet the person you were going to have this exciting story arc with."
Their story kicked off in last week's episode with the unusual meet-cute between Cake's character, Detective Chuck Vance, and Bree Van de Kamp. First, Chuck misunderstood Bree's joke and thought she was out to...
Someone seems to die in every Desperate Housewives season finale, but I've heard nothing about this year's. Have you? — Kimberly, Austin
Hold on to your napkins! We've heard Susan's macaroni and cheese can be foul — but could it be fatal?
Teri Hatcher, Marcia Cross, Eva Longoria
When ABC announced in early January that such network hits as Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice, Castle, Modern Family, Cougar Town and The Middle would be back for the 2011-12 season, one fan fave was conspicuously missing from the rescue boat. At a presentation of ABC's winter programming, new ABC Entertainment president Paul Lee told reporters he "wasn't quite there yet" regarding a renewal for Desperate Housewives, leaving fans to fret that they were about to spend their final months with Susan, Lynette, Bree and Gaby.
Now in its seventh season, the primetime soap continues to be a lucrative international ratings winner...
Ellen Pompeo, Nathan Fillion
Six ABC series have received early renewals, the network announced Monday.
Medical dramas Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice, crime drama Castle and the network's three sophomore comedies, The Middle, Modern Family, and Cougar Town will each return next season.

"We really stood by our Wednesday comedy block and who would have thought a year ago that The Middle, which I think is such an underrated show, would kick off what I think is one of the best nights of comedy," ABC President Paul Lee said at the Television Critics Association's winter previews. "That's a core part of our schedule."
Lee also said Grey's and Private Practice "were really at the top of their creative form" this season...
Brian Austin Green
After performing daring stunts and operating heavy machinery on such action series as Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and Smallville, Brian Austin Green is the first to admit it took a little longer than usual for him to adjust to his latest role on Desperate Housewives.
"It's taken a little getting used to, coming off of Sarah Connor and then just being the shirtless guy sanding wood and crafting things," Green tells TVGuide.com. "It felt a little slow at first — like when am I going to do something? I get it, the wood is sanded. It's smooth. Can I run around? Can I shoot...
Spoiler alert! Following in the bloodied loafers of despised characters J.R. Ewing (Dallas) and Mr. Burns (The Simpsons), the villainous Paul Young (Mark Moses) will be shot by an unknown assailant in the final moments of Desperate Housewives' December 12 cliff-hanger. Fans will be left guessing whodunit until early next year.
You may recall in the season premiere...
Eva Longoria Parker
The cocktails flow and so do the secrets on Sunday at 9/8c on ABC when Desperate Housewives' Gaby (Eva Longoria Parker) and Renee (Vanessa Williams) go on a bender to celebrate Renee's impending divorce and end up sharing ultra-private intel about each other. After sobering up, they go blabbing...
