'Desperate Housewives' May End in Season 8 Instead of 9


'Desperate Housewives' May End in Season 8 Instead of 9


ABC reportedly has been drooling over the idea of Marc Cherry creating a new hit show for them that they would cut the 'Desperate' order for two more seasons only.

Words out there are, "Desperate Housewives" may end after eight seasons only instead of nine like Marc Cherry wanted at the first place. ABC is looking at two-season renewal for the hit series so that the creator could avert his attention to creating a new project for the network.

According to a report by Deadline, beside eager to have a new show, ABC makes this decision based on the response from the lead actresses of "Desperate". Eva Longoria, Teri Hatcher, Marcia Cross and Felicity Huffman have deals through next season but they have yet to commit further.

"They have been approached by ABC Studios about agreeing to options for two more seasons but there has been little communication between the actresses and the studio on the matter," Deadline noted.

ABC is also reportedly working on making deals with the key writers of the show to stay for another two years. But when asked for a comment regarding the report, ABC prefers to stay mum.

Back in September 2009, it was reported that Cherry would develop a new series for ABC together with "Desperate" producer Alexandra Cunningham. As a measure, ABC has anticipated Cherry's less presence on "Desperate" by signing Bob Daily to run the day to day operation should the new project take off.

The other project that Cherry has been working on for the network would be a multi-camera comedy about two very different brothers. One is gay and the other is straight but they share a gynecological practice.

    I just can't believe that it's over; tv will never be the same, there are no other shows that can manage being serious, funny and interesting at the same time...

    See, all these people (below) love Desperate Housewives, including me, of course. So I guess the new show could wait for a while. As long as you're keeping your ratings up, there's no need to stop the show, right?

    Don't just end the show because it already has 7 or 8 seasons! Make season 9 even better! I know the producers can, this show has got STYLE written all over it!

    I love watching Desperate Housewives! I started watching the series in the end of December 2010 and I'm alomost done with season 7 now, and it's by the end of january! I'm hooked, but I have to say, that I think it should end at the 8th season, cause it will get boring in the long run.

    I know right? Get your facts straight people. He had a seven year plan , ABC wanted to extend it to 9. Geez is that so hard? In any event 8 seems good to me I always thought 7 was just right and he should have stuck to his original plan anyways.

    Um Marc Cherry originally said he only wanted to do 7 seasons. Why does this article say he originally wanted to do 9????
