Desperate Housewives to Flash Forward

at . Comments

On December 6, a plane will crash onto Wisteria Lane and take the life of... someone. (You don't wanna know every detail ahead of time, do you?)

Desperate Housewives will then go on hiatus until 2010, picking up with an episode that models itself after another ABC series: FlashForward.

In early January, the show will depict an alternate future reality, as the housewives ponder various “What If” scenarios.

"We’re doing something we’ve never done before,” creator Marc Cherry told TV Guide Magazine. “It’s our ‘What If’ episode, where we’ll show five scenarios with our Housewives contemplating their lives based on the accident. Those who lost someone imagine what their lives would have been like if their loved ones had lived. Some people imagine what if they hadn’t married the people they married.”

Bree and Susan

We can't reveal too much about the unique episode now, but we can confirm that Celia and MJ will play key role on it. Desperate Housewives is casting for actors to play older versions of these characters.

“Some of this will be very funny for some characters," said Cherry, "and heartbreaking for others.”

Desperate Housewives Quotes

There were many things Gabrielle Solis knew for certain. She knew red was her color. She knew diamonds went with everything and she knew men were all the same. But the one thing Gabrielle knew above all else...she would never want children. Unfortunately for Gabrielle, her husband, Carlos, felt differently. Yes, Gabrielle Solis knew without a doubt she didn't want to be a mother, but what she couldn't know was just how much her husband wanted to be a father, or that he'd been tampering with her birth control for months. Or that within one week's time, she'd be pregnant
