Desperate Housewives to bring back Dana Delany

Posted on

Dana Delany may have her own drama now on ABC, but it looks like the popular actress won’t take for granted the great gig she once had on Wisteria Lane. The Body of Proof star is set to return to Desperate Housewives this season to help the long-running sudser say goodbye to its fans.

It’s unclear when Delany, who played Katherine, will stage her comeback, but she won’t be alone: TVline says she’ll join Kyle MacLachlan (Orson) and Andrea Bowen (Julie) in a future episode or two. At the start of the season, Executive Producer Bob Daily reportedly said he’d like to recruit lots of alums to appear in the show’s last season. It sunsets in May.

Now that we’re here, we might as well post our wish list of stars for the drama’s final months (on-screen deaths be damned):

Jesse Metcalfe as John, because our flower garden can always use some tending’ Lily Tomlin as Roberta, because the drama’s always better when it involves a Betty McBusyBody like her; Shawn Pyfrom as Andrew, because he was so dang good; Dougray Scott as Ian, because he was so dang hot; and John Slattery as Victor, Jason Gedrick as Rick, John Barrowman as Patrick, and Nathan Fillion as Dr. Adam, because of the same reasons explained above.

And finally, Nicollette Sheridan as Edie, because we never got over her sudden departure. (And clearly, neither has she).
