Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry has confirmed that the drama series will end in 2012.
Cherry officially announced the show’s end over the weekend, saying it will conclude after the eighth season.
“I wanted to go out when the network still saw us as a viable show and a force to contend with,” Cherry told press. “We felt from a creative standpoint that this was the right time. I feel so good about it.”
He says it was bittersweet when he announced the news to the cast of the long-running series.
“It was bittersweet and lovely, because the women knew there was the possibility [of the show ending],” he explained. “They said some very lovely things to me about how I’ve changed their lives and careers. I truly, truly love every one of them.”
“It’s an iconic show and we’re extremely proud of it,” ABC President Paul Lee added. “I just wanted to make sure it had its victory lap.”
