TVGuide.com is reporting that Marc Cherry, series creator for “Desperate Housewives.” surprised his cast by announcing that he wanted to stretch the run of the show to nine seasons. The occasion was the cake-cutting ceremony celebrating “Wives”‘ 100th episode. There are still a few details to iron out before this becomes a reality—like getting a formal pick-up from ABC and locking in whichever cast members he wants to keep around. But there are certainly good reasons why this should happen. ”Desperate Housewives” is one of the net’s biggest hits and one of the dwindling number of scripted shows still drawing viewers. And nine seasons instead of seven would make for a much more lucrative syndication package, so I’d bet Cherry gets just what he wants this holiday.
