Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry had the original vision of running the show for seven seasons and calling it quits, but a new spark of interest among viewers has him thinking he should go for more!
The ABC hit show is currently in it’s 5th season, and Cherry announced Wednesday that although no contract has been signed, he had came to an agreement with the network to do an 8th and 9th season.
Cherry said during a party to celebrate the 100th episode,
“My intention has always been to end the show after seven seasons, ’cause that first season darn near killed me, but the five-year jump seems to have reinvigorated interest in the show, and the ratings are terrific.
So I started recently talks with (ABC Entertainment president) Steve McPherson and (ABC Studios chief) Mark Pedowitz about continuing the show for a ninth season. We’re going to find a way to make it work.”
This move could keep the Wisteria Lane gang around for another 4 and a half years!
