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.

Mike

So you're just not gonna talk to me, is that it? Fine. I don't need to talk. Okay. Yes, I had a little affair. It wasn't the best thing to do, and I'm not proud of it. But it's not the worst thing that could have happened. Nobody died. Oh, don't be such a martyr, Carlos. Okay, it takes two people. How many times did you go off on your little business trips and leave me alone? See, so technically, you cheated, too. It's just your mistress was your work.
