So, we will have to say a sad farewell to the ladies of Wisteria Lane.
“Desperate Housewives” began its life in 2003 and grew into smash hit prime-time soap view. Back in the beginning, Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, Marcia Cross, Eva Longoria, Nicolette Sheridan and Brenda Strong made up the cast. One of the first dramatic controversies in a show full of drama was the death of Strong’s character.
Now Season 8 of “Desperate Housewives” is almost here. It will hit our screens from September 25, 2011. But “Desperate Housewives Season 8″ it will be the last.
Confusingly, the show’s producers promise that it will be “accessible even to viewers who may have lapsed in their viewing and be all the richer and more rewarding for the series’ loyal fans.”
So what can we expect from the final series of “Desperate Housewives”? Stop reading here if you don’t want any SPOILERS.
Well, first we will see Gaby (Longoria), Susan (Hatcher), Bree (Cross) and Lynette (Huffman) struggle to cover-up of the murder of Gaby’s evil stepfather by her ex, Carlos (played by Ricardo Antonio Chavira). Susan becomes withdrawn as Lynette and Tom’s marriage disintegrates. But there is good new for Bree and Renne, who both fall in love: Bree with new love interest Detective Vance (played by Jonathon Cake), and Renee with the sexy new boy next door, Charles Mesure.
“It is an iconic show. We are so proud of it,” Paul Lee, President of ABC Entertainment said.
Yeah? Well why cancel it, then?
What do you think to the “Desperate Housewives” cancellation? Are you with Lee on wanting the show to do a “victory lap” in honor of putting the network on the map? Or do you think it’s crazy that “Desperate Housewives” is cancelled when it’s clearly a popular show?
