Teri Hatcher Says She’d “Be the First Person” to Return for a ‘Desperate Housewives’ Reboot
She’s ready to head down Wisteria Lane again! In a new interview, Desperate Housewives star Teri Hatcher opened up about doing a reboot of the hit show — and revealed she’s on board for it.
“I’d be the first person [to return],” she told ITV’s Loose Women. “I never wanted it to be over. I love those characters.” Teri played Susan Mayer on the series from 2004 until 2012. She co-starred alongside Eva Longoria (Gabrielle Solis), Felicity Huffman (Lynette Scavo), Marcia Cross (Bre Van de Camp), and Nicollette Sheridan (Edie Britt).
However, she noted that the chances of a revival are “not very good.” She explained, “Just because of the creators. It’s not the women. I think the women would probably all do it.” There were rumors in the past that Teri was feuding with her cast members, so she took this interview as an opportunity to address the talk. When asked if she still keeps in touch with the other actresses she responded, “Not so much, but definitely supportive of everything that we’re all doing. Very exciting Eva’s about to have her first baby!”
Eva — who is expecting baby No. 1 with husband José “Pepe” Bastón — feels the same way as Teri about rebooting the show. “I would play Gaby again in a heartbeat,” she told Closer Weekly in an exclusive interview. “Our showrunner doesn’t want to do it, the creator.”
The Telenovela star also shared that she’s still in touch with Marcia and Felicity today (but didn’t mention Teri). In fact, they’ve been helping her through her pregnancy. “Oh my gosh, Marcia and Felicity have given me advice,” Eva, 42, shared with Us Weekly. “We talk a lot. They’re always supportive and amazing moms.” Here’s hoping they all reunite to revive the show very soon!
