Jesse Metcalfe thinks a Desperate Housewives movie would be cool

Though it ended in 2012, Desperate Housewives remains popular

Thanks to streaming channels, Desperate Housewives, the wildly popular soap opera mystery that starred Teri Hatcher, Marcia Cross, Felicity Huffman, and Eva Longoria, is still drawing in viewers and finding new fans. The Marc Cherry produced series ran for eight seasons on ABC and was a ratings darling during most of its run.

Though it didn’t end on a cliffhanger, it did end with Susan Mayer’s unhappiness, and that’s enough to warrant a movie in any fan’s opinion. And they aren’t the only ones who would love to see it come to fruition.

In a recent interview with Variety, Jesse Metcalfe, who played the hunky gardener who was involved in a steamy affair with Longoria’s character, Gabrielle Solis, said the series made him a household name. Metcalfe went on to say he thinks a movie much like Sex in the City did would be cool.

Over the past eight years, the subject of a revival or a movie has come up with different cast members as well as series creator and executive producer Marc Cherry. Though his response has always been a resounding no as he feels 180 episodes was enough, one star, in particular, has kept the door open, and that gives fans hope.

Teri Hatcher is open to a Desperate Housewives movie

In 2013, Teri Hatcher said she thought a movie would be great for the fans as they didn’t seem to be done with the show, and in 2018, she said she would consider a return to the character.

I’d be the first person. I never wanted it to be over. I love those characters.

Some of the actors did reunite for a quasi-reunion in April, and the announcement lit up the Desperate Housewives Facebook page which still has an astounding 9.8 million followers. With so much fan clamor, perhaps Marc Cherry will change his mind one day. It would certainly be cool.
