"Desperate Housewives" Begin Filming Post-Strike Episodes (***Spoilers***)
We have known the writers' strike was settled over 3 weeks now, but seeing these images of Marcia Cross and Felicity Huffman taken on Thursday last week on the set of ABC's "Desperate Housewives" is what makes me really excited about the new episodes.
ABC has already confirmed we will be seeing as many as 7 new episodes - 5 regular hours plus one 2-hour finale on May 18.
The show got the biggest order of post-strike episodes (both "Grey's Anatomy" and "Ugly Betty" got 5 and "Brothers & Sisters" only 4) because:
1. Following last year's declines, the show is once again ABC's top scripted drama, beating "Grey's Anatomy"
2. Prior to the strike, only 10 episodes had been filmed
3. Creator Marc Cherry has promised to work long hours to deliver as many episodes as possible.
As for the storylines, rumor has it - Bree and her arch rival Katherine (the lovely Dana Delany) may bury the hatchet (or should I say spatulas?) and go into catering business together.
As for Lynette, early spoilers indicate her last year's almost-flame Rick (Jason Gedrick) may be coming back to Wisteria Lane to open a restaurant competing with Scavo Pizzeria. Is Rick after revenge or Lynette?
