At its press tour session in front of the Television Critics Association today, ABC confirmed the rumor that got started late last week: Desperate Housewives will come to an end after season eight.

Creator Marc Cherry was in on the decision and said informing the cast was "bittersweet and lovely." He added:

“I wanted to go out when the network still saw us as a viable show and a force to contend with. We felt from a creative standpoint that this was the right time. I feel so good about it.”
