Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman has reacted to news of the show’s cancellation, insisting the cast feels “really sad, very sorry and very grateful”.
Eva Longoria stunned fans after confirming on Sunday that the hit drama’s upcoming eighth season will be its last.

Her co-star Huffman reveals she found out she was losing her job last Friday when the executive producers made the announcement on set.

She recalls, “It was very quiet. Everyone was that odd combination of really sad and very sorry and, at the same time, very grateful.”

And Huffman is terrified of being typecast after playing mum-of-five Lynette in the show, adding, “You go into acting jail at the end of these things because it’s hard for anyone to see you as anything other than Lynette Scavo or whatever it is. So I think it’s unwise to look at the carnage around you of past television actresses and go, ‘Well, it’s not going to happen to me.'”

Meanwhile, Marcia Cross is relieved the news has been made public: “I was glad that it was finally out there and decided, because I felt like it was coming and I was saying, ‘Hey guys, I think this is coming,’ and everybody was saying ‘No.'”

Narrator Brenda Strong admits she was desperate to sign up for more Houswives, adding: “When anything is good, you don’t want it to end… We were all hoping there would be a ninth year.”
