Desperate Housewives To Last Nine Seasons?

Wisteria Lane is not unlike the world of television: just the faintest whiff of a rumour can quickly escalate until everyone’s screaming, shoes are thrown and before you know it, people are being manacled in suburban S & M basements.

Where do you think Noel Edmonds went for all those years?

E! Online reports that the latest rumour to emerge from the Housewives camp is that creator Marc Cherry has told his cast and crew that the show could go on for nine seasons – leading us all the way up to 2013.

Nothing has been confirmed (contracts for a renewal to Season 5 still haven’t been signed yet), but the news is still surprising when you consider that Cherry spoke earlier this year about how he wanted the show to finish after Season 7.

Many shows have buckled at the pressure of needlessly tacked-on seasons (X-Files, Ally McBeal, Alias), so we hope Cherry manages to overcome the dollar signs currently ka-chinging across his eyes and ends the show when it feels right.
