Drea de Matteo may be the most exciting cast addition to Desperate Housewives, but she isn't the only one.

It's been confirmed that Andrea Bowen will be reprising her role as Julia on season six of the ABC hit, and now the series has announced even more casting news:

Following a two-episode arc this spring, Maiara Walsh is joining the full-time cast next season. The Hollywood Reporter first broke the story.

Maiara Walsh

Walsh portrays Ana, Carlos' beautiful and manipulative niece. Much to the chagrin of Gaby, she came to live with the Solises last season, instantly creating mischief and pushing Gaby's volatile buttons.

Desperate Housewives returns for a sixth season on September 27.
