Eva Longoria, Felicity Huffman, Doug Savant, Ricardo Antonio Chavira and more cast members will bid goodbye to television viewers after eight seasons when "Desperate Housewives" ends its run on May 13. The cast talked to OnTheRedCarpet.com recently about their time on the show and how they would like it to end.
"Not that we're not grateful for the journey, but I love the way we're going out on top and how ABC is dedicated us to write backwards and just kind of give us this amazing farewell," Longoria told OnTheRedCarpet.com correspondent George Pennacchio. "As opposed to it kind of continuing on and rating fall and you're canceled and you have three episodes to wrap it up. Wrap up eight years of characters and storyline. "
As "Desperate Housewives" comes to a close after eight seasons on May 13, original cast member Marcia Cross and fellow co-star Vanessa Williams dished to OnTheRedCarpet.com what they want for their characters in the end and what they'll be looking to do next.
"I do feel like it's the time to move on, that still doesn't make it any easier and it feels just as bittersweet and I suppose if someone said to me, 'One more year?' I would say, 'Well okay,''" Cross told OnTheRedCarpet.com correspondent George Pennacchio recently. "But I do feel that it is the right time so that it's not so dribbling out and weak."
Eva Longoria says she is happy "Desperate Housewives" is ending on a high note, with regard to its popularity.
Longoria, 37, stars on the scandalous drama show as Gabrielle Solis, a former model with a less than steady love life. ABC is airing the series finale on Sunday, May 13, after eight seasons on the air.

Scott Bakula thought that he had missed his chance to appear on "Desperate Housewives," as the long-running series was coming to an end, but the actor landed on Wisteria Lane just in time.
