Well, there is quite a bit of news happening on Wysteria Lane. As the show prepares for it’s sixth season, lots of changes are in store. Here’s just a bit of the news I gathered (thanks to TV Fanatic!!!):
Shawn Pyfrom (Andrew) has been bumped to recurring status so that the actor can work on other projects. Series creator, Marc Cherry, said that he does not want to lose Andrew all together because he really likes the character.
Drea de Matteo (The Sopranos) has joined the cast as a new series regular. Her character’s name is Angie Bolen. Angie moves to Wysteria Lane with her husband – new series regular, Jeff Nordling (24) – and her son – new series regular, Beau Mirchoff. The family definitely has a secret, which will play out throughout the season.
Andrea Bowen (Julie) returns to DH this season as a series regular. It is rumored that Julie will be dating Beau Mirchoff’s character.
Orson Bean has joined the cast in the role of Roy. Roy will be Karen McClusky’s (Kathryn Joosten) boyfriend. And yes, they will have a sex scene.
My favorite news, of course, is that Jesse Metcalfe is returning to the show in the role of John. Only this time John wont be going after Gabby (Eva Longoria-Parker). Instead, he’ll be dating Ana (Maiara Walsh), the niece of Carlos (Ricardo Antonio Chavira) that moved in with Gabby and Carlos in the season 5 finale.
We’ll learn who Mike (James Denton) married in the season 5 finale…either Susan (Teri Hatcher) or Katherine (Dana Delaney).
Bree (Marcia Cross) will still be flirting with Karl (Richard Burgi), but her story with Orson (Kyle MacLachlan) is far from over.
Finally, we found out in the season finale that Lynette (Felicity Huffman) was preggers again. Turns out that her’s and Tom’s (Doug Savant) story may lead her down the road of considering an abortion.
I’m really excited to see where DH is going to go this year. Sounds like an exciting season already. DH’s season premiere is on Sunday, September 27th.
