Shawn Pyfrom: No Longer a Regular on Desperate Housewives

at . Comments

No returning show on television has gone through as many casting changes as Desperate Housewives.

The biggest, of course, was the addition of Drea de Matteo to the cast.

But Andrea Bowen and Jesse Metcalfe are also making returns to the series, while Orson Bean has landed a recurring role.

Now, the ABC hit has announced that Shawn Pyfrom won't be returning to the show on a full-time basis.

The actor has played Andrew Van De Kamp, the troubled son of Marcia Cross’s character, for years.

“Shawn’s not returning for a full season next fall,” a source confirmed. “But he’ll come back and make a few guest star appearances... His decision didn’t come easy, but he wants to pursue new television and film opportunities.”

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.
