Desperate Housewives Welcomes Back Andrea Bowen

by at . Comments

It's difficult to top the casting of Drea de Matteo on Desperate Housewives.

But, with the following announcement, the ABC hit may have at least equaled the buzz created by that news: Andrea Bowen is coming back to the show!

As first reported by Michael Ausiello, the actress has signed on to reprise her role as Susan's oldest child, Julie. She'll appear in the September 27 season premiere, while sources add that she's coming back in a full-time capacity.

Andrea Bowen as Julie

The character disappeared at the conclusion of season four, as Julie was a casualty of the show's four-year flash forward. On college break last season, she briefly returned and told her mom that she was dating her 40-year-old professor, played by Steven Weber.

It's unlikely that he'll appear again on Desperate Housewives.

Desperate Housewives Quotes

I love you once. I love you twice. I love you more than beans and rice.


Passion. It's a force so potent we still remember it long after it's faded away. A drive so alluring it can push us into the arms of unexpected lovers. A sensation so overwhelming, it can knock down walls we've built to protect our hearts. A feeling so intense, it resurfaces even though we tried so hard to keep it buried. Yes, of all emotions, passion is the one that gives us a reason to live, and an excuse to commit all sorts of crimes.
