Eva Longoria has revealed that a ‘Desperate Housewives’ reboot is unlikely to happen as its “groundbreaking” nature would get it “cancelled in culture”.

After ending the show on the cliff-hanger of what secret new neighbour Jennifer (Lindsey Kraft) was hiding more than a decade ago, fans have been eagerly awaiting the day the show returns.

When viewers last saw the ladies of Wisteria Lane, each of them got the happy ending they deserved after years of drama, scandals and affairs on the street.

In a time jump spanning decades, it was revealed that Lynette Scavo (Felicity Huffman) became a CEO and moved to New York with husband Tom (Doug Savant) where the two happily lived out the rest of their days with their grandchildren.

Gabrielle (Eva Longoria) set up a personal shopping website that eventually became a TV show, resulting in her family moving to California where she “argued happily ever after” with her husband, Carlos (Ricardo Antonio Chavira).

Bree Van de Kamp (Marcia Cross) ended up marrying the lawyer who defended her during her murder trial during the show’s final season and the two eventually move to Louisville, Kentucky where Bree became a member of the state legislature.

The fate of Susan Delfino (Teri Hatcher) was, however, never revealed to viewers – making it possible that this could be the storyline bringing the show back after all these years given that the ladies no longer live on the beloved street together anymore.

“I think we’d get cancelled”

However, Eva has now shared that she does not see a ‘Desperate Housewives’ reboot happening anytime soon.

“I don’t know if we could do the show today. I think we’d get cancelled,” she told ET Online. “I mean, not cancelled on TV but like cancelled in culture because it was so groundbreaking and we said and did so many things that were shocking at the time. I don’t know where these ladies would be now in their life.”

She added that the show’s creator, Marc Cherry, has also opposed bringing the show back with the original cast because “he feels like we fully explored these characters” – something Eva agrees with.

She continued: “I could not sleep with one more person on that street — like, I was like, ‘I’ve slept with everybody. You’ve slept with everybody! We’ve exchanged husbands.’ It was like, ‘What else? What other stories could we possibly tell [with] these women?’ And so that’s Marc’s big, big thing; he’s like, ‘Why now?’ He doesn’t want to reboot just to reboot.”

Despite this, Eva shared that she would still be “the first” to sign on if ‘Desperate Housewives’ ever does make a comeback.

“I love that show so much, I miss my time on the show,” she explained. “I miss Gabby. I miss being Gabby; she was so fun, and she said and did things I wish I could say and do.”

Desperate Housewives ran for eight seasons from 2004 until 2012, making history as the hour-long television series featuring all-female leads with the most episodes (180 overall).

It received critical acclaim from both audiences and critics alike and continues to be recognised as one of the most iconic television shows ever made.
