The fictional street was home to harried mum-of-four Lynette Scavo (Felicity Huffman), conservative perfectionist Bree Van de Kamp (Marcia Cross), creative free-spirit Susan Mayer (Teri Hatcher) and glamorous former-model Gabrielle Solis (Eva Longoria Bastón) and their wickedly dysfunctional families.
The show aired from 2004 to 2012, for eight seasons, and was screened a decade and a half before we had streaming services – meaning back then, we only got to watch the suspenseful domestic dramedy once a week.
Here’s what the stars of one of the 2000s most iconic shows have been up to.
The Desperate Housewives.
Felicity Huffman (Lynette Scavo).
Since Desperate Housewives, the Emmy award-winning actor has starred in a string of successful roles, in shows such as Shameless and American Crime, and the movie Transamerica, for which she won a Golden Globe Award. Huffman has had projects with Netflix, most notably Get Shorty, which streamed in 2018.
Huffman is married to fellow award-winning actor William H. Macy, and they share teenage daughters Sofia and Georgia.
This week, 56-year-old Huffman was arrested for fraud charges after allegedly paying $15 000 for a college to double the time given to her daughter to sit an exam. Those charges are pending.
Eva Longoria Bastón (Gabrielle Solis).
