导读：2004年开播的经典美剧《绝望主妇》（Desperate Housewives）曾经在国内掀起了一阵不小的美剧热潮，然而这出剧集将要在明年与观众说再见了。该剧主创马克·切利（Marc Cherry）说，离别是一种苦乐参半的感觉。“唯一比创造出一部热门剧集要难的事情是，该怎么去结束它。”马克·切利向记者说，“我想让电视网觉得《绝望主妇》仍旧是一部出色的剧集，是一股值得去争取的力量。根据我们的眼光来看，现在确实是结束的时候了。我很高兴事情这样结尾。”在ABC电视网总裁保罗·李确认第八季将是《绝望主妇》最后一季仅仅几分钟后，马克·切利发表了上述言论。“《主妇》是我台的一部标志性的剧集，我们非常引以为豪。”保罗·李说，“我想确保该剧有一个十分出色的结尾。”
ABC announced Sunday that the next season of its series "Desperate Housewives" will be the last, the Los Angeles Times reported.
Speaking at a Television Critics Association event in Beverly Hills, ABC Entertainment Group President Paul Lee confirmed rumors that the comedy-drama, which stars Teri Hatcher and Eva Longoria, will end next year with its eighth season.
"It is an iconic show," he said. "I just wanted to make sure that this show that put this network on the map ... had its victory lap, had a chance to really set out every episode and build an arc [in its final season]."
The show's final season will be its first without creator Marc Cherry serving as executive producer. Cherry stepped down from "Housewives" to work on other projects. He said it was "bittersweet" to tell the cast that the show was coming to an end.
"The women knew it was a possibility," Cherry said. "There was a touch of shock but not completely."
The eighth and final season of "Desperate Housewives" is scheduled to premiere Sept. 25 on ABC.
