The Beginning Of The End Arrives For Desperate Housewives

It’s been long known that Desperate Housewives was ending with the current season, and now it’s all starting to sink in.  Yesterday stars Felicity Huffman, Marcia Cross , Eva Longoria, James Denton, Vanessa Williams, Ricardo Antonio Chavira, Doug Savant and Teri Hatcher were joined on stage by series creator Marc Cherry and executive producer Bob Daily to meet with the nation’s critics for the final time.

EW reports that Huffman stated “It’s like having the funeral before you die!”

Marc Cherry gave a much more detailed response however.  “People ask me if it’s bittersweet. No, it’s sweet. There is no such thing as a job that goes on forever. I was so f—ed. I was $100,000 in debt to my mother, I went three years without an interview. No one thought I was anything. I write this script, and all hell broke loose. I knew it was going to be a roller coaster. I’m smart enough, humane enough to know it’s all good. Even the bad stuff was good. Even the days when I was exhausted. It was fantastic. We are grateful.”

If you are expecting a movie to come out of this, don’t.  Cherry added that “I’m never sending these gals to Dubai.  I think we’re done. I’m happy about it. I feel very satisfied with where we are.”

As for teasers or plot points about the final episode, nothing was revealed other than not everything will be resolved.  ”We don’t want to tie up every loose end,” admitted Daily. ”We want it to look like life goes on, on Wisteria Lane.”
