Things remain pretty good over on Wisteria Lane, so sources suggest that an eighth season of Desperate Housewives could be in the works.

Thing is, the ladies contracts are all up this year, so in order to make another season happen, some renegotiations with Felicity Huffman, Marcia Cross, Teri Hatcher and Eva Longoria have to go down.

The good news is that the ladies all still very much get along and reportedly are eager to return to the show for another year. Though ABC has made no official announcement, we're hearing the women have already started laying down the ground work for their new contracts.

Just to give you an idea though on how much the stand to gain, the four of them already make roughly $400,000 each per episode. Obviously, there is a lot at stake.

But is there enough story to go on for another season? What do U think?

    OH PULEEEZ. GROUNDWORK FOR NEW CONTRACTS?? U MEAN MONEY TALKS BULLSHIT WALKS. SOUNDS LIKE THE BEST NEGOTIATING TACTIC TO ME. HEY, IT WORKED FOR SEINFELD AND FRIENDS CASTS. THE MIDDLE AGED CHICS ARE ASKING FOR A $1 MIL/EPISODE JUST LIKE THE LATTER. NOT A SECRET… YAWN!

    It's Desperate Housewives… it's one of ABC's best shows… It's not going anywhere :)

    well, if some of them are giving ABC problems, do what happens in most suburban neighborhoods, HOUSES GO UP FOR SALE! Especially if YOU HATE YOUR NEIGHBORS AND THEY HATE YOU! Need new story lines? Foreclose on one of the housewives and have someone strange move in after buying the house from the bank or buying it on a shortsale. Keep up with today's headlines. OR, someone forecloses and you have transients move in….. THAT WOULD SHAKE UP THE NEIGHBORHOOD, great story line and you can't remove them from a property that easily.

    I believe they can last. It's the top ABC scripted show so far with Grey's Anatomy right behind it, and I think they do have another two more years left. I hope they all come back because it's my favorite show on right now!

    I actually started watching this show on a semi-regular basis this year and I was surprised by how much I like it! Eva Longoria is hilarious…she's like the Hispanic version of Karen Walker….I love her!

    This show SUCKS. Apparently the actresses spend all their money on botox and it certainly shows. Besides that this show has been going downhill for some time and the story line SUCKS SO BAD.

    Three years ago I would have said pull the plug, DH had jumped the shark. But Mark Cherry is brilliant and has pulled a rabbit out of a hat and resurrected this program. This year has been fabulous so I say YES!!! keep it going!!!

    It can go or it can stay but IF it stays then they need to get their crap together and start writing better storylines. This season sucks big time. Susan is cleaning her house looking like a whore on the internet, Vanessa W getting drunk all the time, Bree with a guy young enough to be her son, Paul Young buying all the houses, stupid stupid stupid. They should make Tom and whats her face grandparents with octuplets. They need more babies in that house.
