Season 8

The seventh season of Desperate Housewives, a television series created by Marc Cherry, began airing on September 26, 2010[3] and concluded on May 15, 2011.[4] The deceased Mary Alice Young continues to narrate the events in the lives of her friends and Wisteria Lane residents, Susan Delfino, Lynette Scavo, Bree Van de Kamp and Gabrielle Solis. The new housewife, Renee Perry, is introduced in this season. Paul Young returns to the lane and is the center of this season's mystery.

Season seven was originally intended to be the final season, according to creator Marc Cherry. He has a new plan to extend the series two more seasons, meaning an eighth and ninth season. Marc Cherry has signed a new two-year deal with ABC that will keep Desperate Housewives on the air until the year 2013, subject to negotiations with Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, Marcia Cross and Eva Longoria, the show's main actresses, who are all contracted for seven years. The first episode of the season aired in Latin America on October 6, 2010. Season 7 premiered in Ireland on Tuesday, October 12, 2010. Season 7 began airing in the United Kingdom on October 17, 2010. It started airing at 9:00 PM on October 25, 2010 on OSN's Show Series in the Middle East. It began airing in Israel on December 12, 2010.

The series saw the lowest ratings in its history in the seventh season. In the first 12 episodes, the series attracted very similar viewership to the second half of the sixth season and hit season highs of 4.4 in the 18-49 demographic[5] and continued around 3.5 - 4.3 until mid January.[6] But after the thirteenth episode of season seven, "I'm Still Here", the ratings declined heavily because of the consecutive competition from the 68th Golden Globe Awards[7] and then saw even lower numbers, against the 2011 Grammy Awards and then the Country Music Association Awards. "Desperate Housewives" lost many viewers in the second half of its season, and unlike the previous season, it failed to pick up again towards the end of the season. The show hit series lows of 2.7 in 18-49 demographic twice and continued to receive ratings between 2.7 - 3.1 in the last 11 episodes with the exception of "Searching" which was promoted by ABC after the 83rd Academy Awards and had a lead in from the season premiere of Secret Millionaire. This is the first time in its history that it did not place in the 20 most watched shows, ranking as the 26th most watched show, although it did place as the 13th most watched scripted show during the 2010-11 television season.[8] The season averaged 11.85 million viewers per episode and is ABC's third most watched scripted show in total viewers after Body of Proof and Modern Family.[8] In the 18-49 demographic, the show ranked 20th.[8]

Cast

The regular cast underwent several changes from the 6th to the 7th season. The returning castmembers included series narrator Brenda Strong as Mary Alice Young, and leading housewives Teri Hatcher as Susan Delfino, Felicity Huffman as Lynette Scavo, Marcia Cross as Bree Van de Kamp and Eva Longoria as Gabrielle Solis, as well as husbands James Denton as Mike Delfino, Ricardo Antonio Chavira as Carlos Solis and Doug Savant as Tom Scavo, and also Charlie Carver as Porter Scavo, Joshua Logan Moore as Parker Scavo, Madison De La Garza as Juanita Solis and Mason Vale Cotton as M.J.

Kyle MacLachlan (Orson Hodge) asked to be let go from the main cast after season 6 to pursue other projects. The Bolen family's story ended in the 6th season finale, so series regulars Drea de Matteo (Angie Bolen), Jeffrey Nordling (Nick Bolen) and Beau Mirchoff (Danny Bolen) all left the main cast, as did Andrea Bowen (Julie Mayer). The role of Penny Scavo was recast, with Kendall Applegate being replaced by Darcy Rose Byrnes.

Former recurring guest stars Kevin Rahm (Lee McDermott) and Tuc Watkins (Bob Hunter) were promoted to "starring" castmembers, and former Ugly Betty star Vanessa Williams joined the cast as a sort of fifth lead (following the departure of three supporting housewives over the previous two seasons) in the role of Renee Perry.

Max Carver retained his recurring status as Preston Scavo, as did other established recurring guest stars, including Daniella Baltodano as Celia Solis and Orson Bean as Roy Bender. Several former series regulars have guest starred throughout the season, including Bowen as Julie, Cody Kasch as Zach Young, Shawn Pyfrom as Andrew Van de Kamp, Joy Lauren as Danielle Katz, Steven Culp as Rex Van de Kamp, and Brent and Shane Kinsman as younger Preston and Porter, respectively. Harriet Sansom Harris returned as Felicia Tilman, after having been written off for a while following season 2.

Storylines

Susan Delfino

Susan and Mike are facing financial troubles, which has forced them to leave Wisteria Lane and move-in to a small apartment. Mike asks Lee to rent the house on Wisteria Lane to whoever offers the most money. This ends up being Paul Young, who has just been released from prison and moves into the house, along with his new wife Beth. Susan and Mike are upset that Paul is now living in their house, but he has signed a one year lease, so there isn't anything they can do. In the season premiere, Susan receives an offer from her new landlady Maxine to appear on Maxine's erotic web site doing housework while wearing lingerie. Despite initially refusing the offer, Susan accepts it after Mike considers taking a job on an oil rig in Alaska. Susan does her best to hide this secret from her family and friends. However, her secret is soon discovered by Paul, who is now blackmailing her into letting him buy the house, an offer Mike has previously refused. When Mike learns of Susan's secret, he decides to accept the offer of working a couple of months in Alaska so they can return to their house in Wisteria Lane as soon as possible and Susan agrees to be Lynette's nanny. During a protest after Paul announced that he plans to open a halfway house for ex-convicts on the street, the protest escalates into a violent riot and Susan is trampled by the unruly crowd.[12] As a result, Susan loses a kidney after she learns that her second kidney is deformed and she is at severe risk of renal failure. Susan reluctantly agrees to undergo dialysis while waiting for a transplant.[13] After Beth kills herself, she gives her kidney to Susan, to which although Paul first refuses, he later accepts and he and Susan reconcile.[14] After discovering that Paul has been depressed following Beth's suicide, Susan begins cooking meals for him with the assistance of Felicia Tilman, who secretly adds antifreeze to the food in an effort to kill him.[15] Paul nearly dies as a result of the poisoned food. Unaware that Felicia is helping prepare his meals, Paul has Susan arrested for attempting to kill him.[16] Eventually, Susan is released, Paul confesses to the murder of Martha Huber, and Felicia presumably dies in a car crash while fleeing town.[17] Susan and her family move back onto Wisteria Lane.

Lynette Scavo

Lynette has just had her newest baby, Paige Scavo. Lynette's old college frenemy, Renee Perry, wife of New York Yankees player Doug Perry, comes to visit her. While Lynette decides to ignore Tom's postpartum depression, Renee listens to him, which Lynette thanks her for, but tells her to back off. She's also stunned after Tom's doctor prescribes marijuana as a cure for his depression. Lynette realizes that her daughter Penny is helping her a lot with the baby, and decides she needs a nanny. Tom enlists the help of his mother, who has very different views on family values than Lynette, which causes conflict. In addition, Tom's mother seems to be losing her memory. When Tom's mother, Allison, clashes with Lynette, he decides that the best thing to do for her is to send her to a nursing home. She hires Susan, who's having financial woes, to be her newborn baby's nanny. Lynette is shown to be insecure in their marriage when Tom complains that she never "talks him up" to her friends although they sort it out. When Lynette learns that Renee and Tom had a one night stand 20 years ago which happened right after Tom and Lynette became engaged, she doesn't take it well, and is of course upset but keeps it quiet and instead begins a series of pranks against Tom as payback. When Tom find out, he confronts Lynette and she eventually forgives him. When Tom gets a new job that provides well, Renee encourages Lynette to spend freely with money but also warns her that Tom will be spending more time away. When Tom attends a conference, Lynette is upset that she is unable to attend any of the events because she's just a wife, and she is not allowed to attend any speeches, so Lynette steals a woman's ID to attend a talk only to discover she has the identity of the keynote speaker. Back home, Renee watches as Tom and Lynette argue, and he complains, that after so many years of supporting Lynette, it hurts that she won't do the same for him. Then when Tom hires Lynette and Renee to decorate his office, Lynette decides to design it against the wishes of Tom. Renee overrules her to give Tom the office he wants. More tension arises between Tom and Lynette when Tom decides to book a luxurious holiday for the family and announces it Lynette is annoyed and consults Tom about why he did not consult her about it first. This leads to yet another fight between them; this time however they insult each other. They decide that it is only them who need to spend a holiday together. The holiday turns out badly and the relationship deteriorates and becomes extremely awkward. Before Lynette attends a street dinner party, Penny reveals to her that Tom had left her a note. Lynette is surprised and finds that Tom's unpacked suitcase from the holiday is not in the bedroom, convincing her that Tom had left her. After revealing to Susan that she thought Tom had left her, Lynette walks into her house, finding Tom, had returned. The two talk and Lynette confesses that when she thought Tom had left, she felt relieved, leading the pair to finally decide to separate.

Later, Keith confronts Richard about this and has a fistfight with him but when rioters, who are opposing Paul Young's plan to open a halfway house for ex-convicts on Wisteria Lane, see the two fight, they mistake him as an ex-convict due to his tattoos and ex-convict-like clothing and begin to beat Keith up.
