The ABC days for the television critics' association summer tour are Sunday and Monday, but the big news leaked out last week: "Desperate Housewives" will wrap up its run after eight seasons, Deadline first reported.
The fictional street of Wisteria Lane is dismantled in the spring of 2012.
Ex-'Housewives' star Nicollette Sheridan filed a $20 million lawsuit against the show’s creator Marc Cherry and makers ABC.
Sheridan, 47, was fired from the show in its fifth series in 2009, with her character being killed off by an electrocution following a car accident.
Her suit claims wrongful termination, breach of contract and battery.
"Desperate Housewives" creator Marc Cherry now is a consultant throughout the final season of the series that stars Teri Hatcher and Eva Longoria.
