Dana Delany back on Wisteria Lane next season

Dana DelanyWe learned yesterday that ABC's Desperate Housewives will be back for season five next fall, in its same time-slot of Sunday at 9 p.m. I'm sure creator Marc Cherry has stocked up on Tums in the past few years, as the series waffled between must-see and mediocrity. Right now, it's somewhere in the middle, although I've made a point to watch every week, so that says something right there.

ET Online is breaking news tonight that Dana Delany will be returning to the series in the fall. Although no storyline has been as compelling as the murder intrigue that super-charged season one, the mystery surrounding Delany's Katherine Mayfair this season has been mildly interesting.

We know it has something to do with her daughter, Dylan (Lyndsy Fonseca) and ex-husband, Wayne (Gary Cole), who struck up a relationship with Dylan in recent weeks. I must admit, I'm curious enough to make sure the DVR records when the season finale rolls around.

Delany told ET Online today that although her mystery will be solved in the finale (and in Sunday's episode, Katherine mentioned selling the house and moving away), her character will indeed be back next season. I've been a big fan of Delany's since she played Nurse Colleen McMurphy on China Beach in the 1990s. She's starred in numerous movies over the years and currently has four feature films in the works.

In recent years, she's also voiced the part of Lois Lane in the animated Justice League and Batman series. Let's face it, once you've been Lois Lane, everything else is just secondary.

This is also a good place to mention a six degrees thing between Delany and Housewives co-star Teri Hatcher, who played the part of Lois Lane in the 1990s TV series, Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman.

Hmmm...any other Superman connections among the Housewives?

I hope this doesn't mean that this is at the expense of Nicolette Sheridan. Maybe Sheridan can get a spinoff series? She deserves more air time.
