Desperate Housewives Welcomes Back Andrea Bowen

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.


There is a place in St. Timothy's church
where sinners go to confess their sins. And once they're done,they expect absolution. But the truth is, not all confessions are worthy of such forgiveness. Most who unveil hidden agendas deserve the condemnation they receive. Most who disclose vengeful motives merit the punishment that follows. Only the truly repentant have any right
at all to expect a second chance... Which is why it's best to think twice before you confess... Especially if you don't know what it is you're confessing to.
