FEELINGS OF GUILT OVER THE MURDER OF GABY'S EVIL STEPFATHER BEGIN TO OVERCOME EVERYONE INVOLVED IN DIFFERENT WAYS, AND LIFE ON WISTERIA LANE MAY NEVER BE THE SAME, ON THE SEASON PREMIERE OF ABC'S "DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES"
This Season Marks the Final One for This Landmark Series
All good things eventually come to an end, and in the final season of this landmark show, the stakes are at an all-time high. Winner of both the 2005 and 2006 Golden Globe Award for Best Television Series -- Musical or Comedy - "Desperate Housewives" is a primetime soap with a truly contemporary take on "happily ever after." The series, which takes a darkly comedic look at suburbia -- where the secret lives of housewives aren't always what they seem -- began with Mary Alice Young inside her perfect house, in the loveliest of suburbs, taking her own life. Commenting from her elevated point of view, she took us into the lives of her family, friends and neighbors.
In the season premiere episode, "Secrets That I Never Want to Know," airing SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 25 (9:00-10:01 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network, Susan, Gaby, Bree, Lynette and Carlos must dispose of the body of Gaby's evil stepfather, who was killed by Carlos in order to protect his wife. But feelings of guilt begin to overcome everyone in different ways. Susan starts to withdraw from her friends and family, and Gaby works to reach out to Carlos while his guilt weighs heavily upon him. As Lynette and Tom are grappling with their disintegrating marriage and impending separation, Lynette is having trouble making the right choices ever since she participated in the cover-up. And Bree must be especially careful around her new love -- Detective Chuck Vance. Meanwhile, a sexy, new neighbor moves to town, Ben Faulkner, and he's Renee's first order of business.
