The end is near…
Last week, it was announced that life on Wisteria Lane would finally be coming to an end as this upcoming seventh season of Desperate Housewives would be the last. As the show was supposed to be extended into an eighth season, it was odd that the network decided to cut their long-standing, high-rating show short, but it seems like the decision was more showrunner Marc Cherry's than theirs.
At the TCA this weekend, Marc expressed his profound gratitude to the fans, his cast and the network for the last seven years of his career and he explained why he felt like it was time to end the show a season early. He said:
“I wanted to go out when the network still saw us as a viable show and a force to contend with. We felt from a creative standpoint that this was the right time. I feel so good about it.”
You have to do what feels right, we suppose.
He was then asked about how the cast took the news and he admited there was a "touch of shock" for the ladies. He added:
“I’ve spoken to over half of them. It was bittersweet and lovely, because the women knew there was the possibility… They said some very lovely things to me about how I’ve changed their lives and careers. I truly, truly love every one of them. [They] fill me up with such emotion inside; I love my cast. [They're] people who are smart enough to be grateful.”
Hmm. Is it just us or does that sound like a dig at someone else's expense? Just saying!
As the end is coming sooner than we think, ABC has released their first promo for the new and final season. Check out the video (above) to relive all the dramarama ding-dong doozey moments!
