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.”

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

Take it from the reigning odd duck on the lane, nobody cares about that silly stuff.

Mrs. McCluskey

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.
