A primetime soap with a truly contemporary take on the "happily ever after," "Desperate Housewives" takes a darkly comedic look at suburbia, where the secret lives of housewives aren't always what they seem.
The series began with Mary Alice Young (Brenda Strong) leaving her perfect house, in the loveliest of suburbs, and ending it all. Commenting from her elevated P.O.V., she took us into the lives of her family, friends and neighbors. This season, more of the shockingly delicious secrets viewers have come to know and love await her circle of girlfriends. When Mike Delfino (James Denton) makes his choice between Susan Mayer (Teri Hatcher) and Katherine Mayfair (Dana Delany), one woman is driven to a mental breakdown; Lynette (Felicity Huffman) and Tom Scavo (Doug Savant) face the challenging realities of yet another pregnancy; Bree Hodge (Marcia Cross) -- Martha Stewart on steroids - struggles to break free of Orson (Kyle MacLachlan) and her inhibitions; and Gabrielle Solis (Eva Longoria Parker) is put to the test by husband Carlos' (Ricardo Antonio Chavira) teenaged niece now in their care.
