The 'Body of Proof' star will reprise her 'Desperate Housewives' role before the series finale. According to TVLine, Andrea Bowen and Kyle MacLachlan will also return to the nighttime soap.

No episode counts have been given for any of the stars.

When viewers last saw Delany's Katherine, she was leaving town with her girlfriend (Julie Benz).

"Had dinner w/ Marc Cherry and YES hope to return to @DesperateABC this spring," Delany tweeted.

'Desperate Housewives' - 'We All Deserve to Die' Recap

Desperate Housewives(S06E19) "Sometimes ... we let it in." - Mary Alice about "Evil"

After months without mentioning the strangler storyline, 'Desperate Housewives' finally let "Evil" back in and treated us not only with hints and, sadly, a new killing, but also with the identity of the culprit!!!

We first saw the person in the second episode of the season. My immediate instinct was that the strangled was a young man with whom Julie may have had a complicated "thing" with and that I didn't think it was Julie's ex (played by Steven Weber). In comments TV Squad readers left to my review of that episode, most fingers were pointed at Danny, McCluskey, Ana, Angie, Roy, and Katherine. Of course, as more episodes aired, people were added to the list while others were removed. Did you guess right? The answer coming up!

Nathan Fillion Fires a Gun on 'Castle' (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Mar 30th 2010 2:03AM
Castle, Boom, Nathan FillionThere were a few high points in this week's 'Castle' (Mon., 10PM ET on ABC). Not only did Beckett survive her apartment blowing to smithereens last week, but she also nabbed the killer and saved Agent Shaw.

But our favorite part was seeing Castle actually fire a gun AND shoot the bad guy's gun out of his freakin' hand. Wonder if he'll want more of that adrenaline rush, now that he's had a taste of it.

Watch the video after the jump.

'Castle' - 'Boom!' Recap

(S01E18)
As much as this episode veered into "bad buddy cop movie" territory several times, it was definitely a fun hour of television. In fact, after watching last week's episode, and now this, I could definitely see 'Castle' spawning a successful made-for-TV-movie franchise at some point. This storyline was a perfectly-contained movie, and it goes to further prove what the actual 'Heat Wave' novel showed us: these characters can thrive in stand-alone stories.

As Jane mentioned last week, Dana Delany is great as Agent Shaw, and I loved seeing her outside of her increasingly ridiculous role on 'Desperate Housewives,' although it was nice to see her and her 'DH' hubby, Nathan Fillion, reunited -- especially because I'm pretty sure it was more his role on that show, and less his cult status from 'Firefly' that got Fillion the 'Castle' gig in the first place.

'Castle' - 'Tick, Tick, Tick...' Recap

Castle: Tick Tick Tick(S02E17) "There's an app for that?" - Castle to Jordan Shaw, on her fingerprint app

Tonight's episode of 'Castle' was the first of a two-parter, and some pretty big stuff happened. If you haven't seen it yet, I'll wait til after the jump to talk about the major spoilers.

One thing I can talk about before the jump is Dana Delany. It was really awesome to see her in a meatier role than her 'Desperate Housewives' character. Ever since 'China Beach,' I've been waiting for her to get a really good role and hopefully, her new ABC pilot 'Body of Evidence' will be just that.

I know she's had plenty of roles since 'China,' but nothing that's equaled it in my mind. What can I say? I live in the past. She also played Magnum's girlfriend, so there.

Dana Delany on 'Castle,' 'Desperate Housewives' and Kissing Julie Benz

by Jenna Busch, posted Mar 22nd 2010 6:00PM
CastleABC has learned what we all knew for so long: Dana Delany is a hot commodity. Not only is the 'Desperate Housewives' star heating things up on the series, she's guesting on 'Castle' and things have gotten so hot they're literally explosive.

On 'Castle' (Mon., 10PM ET on ABC), Delany plays Jordan Shaw, an FBI investigator called in to help catch a serial killer. Fans will naturally recognize this as a mini 'Desperate Housewives' reunion because 'Castle' star Nathan Fillion played Delany's husband on the series.

We got a chance to chat with Delany and she gave us the scoop on her 'Castle' stint, the pilot that could determine whether she returns for next season's 'Desperate Housewives' (Sun., 9PM ET on ABC) and whether Fillion or Julie Benz is the better kisser.
Check out the interview after the jump.

'Desperate Housewives' - 'My Two Young Men' Recap

Desperate Housewives(S06E18) "You should never trust family photos. They are designed to be deceiving." - Mary Alice when describing the Van De Kamp's photos

Last week's episode set a lot of storylines in motion: Preston and Irina's upcoming wedding, Sam becoming a part of Bree's life, Katherine and Robin potentially becoming a couple, and Patrick eventually finding the Bolens. This week, these four storylines continued to be developed and questions were raised as we fast approach the final episodes of this season of 'Desperate Housewives.'

Before I comment on these four storylines and the fact that Preston still has the worst fake mustache in TV history, I must warn you that the next new episode will air on April 18. That means we will have to wait close to a month before getting new dish on our favorite Wisteria Lane residents!

'Desperate Housewives' - 'Chromolume #7' Recap

Desperate Housewives
(S06E17) "I know that you have a secret." - Gaby to Angie

'Desperate Housewives' titles are always found in lyrics of songs written by Stephen Sondheim. This week's unusual title is no different. 'Chromolume #7' is a song in the musical 'Sunday in the Park with George.' More precisely, the Chromolume #7 is a color and light machine featured in an act of the musical.

The title fits with Mary Alice's commentary at the end of the episode saying that it's not always easy to see people's true colors and that people hide their true nature from us every day. This week, we got confirmation on Angie's secret, we learned who Sam really is, we discovered how Gaby acted when she was a high profile model, and we met Preston's girlfriend and mustache!

Who's Coming and Going on 'Desperate Housewives'?

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 6th 2010 9:55AM
desperate_housewives_cast_white_setMarc Cherry, the creator of 'Desperate Housewives,' would probably appreciate this reference. In the 1932 Oscar-winning movie 'Grand Hotel' -- which became a Tony-winning musical on Broadway -- one character, Dr. Otternschlag, who lives at the hotel and observes the action, comments wryly, "People come and go. Nothing ever happens." Of course, a zillion things happen; he's just unaware from his perch in the lobby.

Wisteria Lane is like that. From some neighbor's point of view, nothing happens. However, as viewers, we know better! And as for the people come and go, well, that's abundantly clear with the news this week.

Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello had two major casting items about the ABC drama. Emmy-winner Drea de Matteo is leaving 'Desperate Housewives' and Dana Delany might be out, too.

Drea de Matteo to Leave 'Desperate Housewives'

Drea de MatteoDrea de Matteo will forever be remembered for her shocking exit from 'The Sopranos' in 2004, when Adriana was rubbed out by Silvio.

Now comes word that Marc Cherry will try to top it, as it's being reported that de Matteo's current stint on 'Desperate Housewives' will end in May.

In an exclusive interview with the Ausiello Files, Cherry promises an "explosive finale" and said that, despite rumors, de Matteo only planned on doing one season of the show. "She has a baby and is eager to get back to her life in New York," he said.

Is Dana Delany Leaving 'Desperate Housewives'?

by Gary Susman, posted Mar 3rd 2010 4:45PM
If 'Body of Evidence,' ABC's medical/crime procedural drama pilot, makes it to the fall schedule, the show's first murder victim may be Wisteria Lane divorcée Katherine Mayfair.

According to the Ausiello Files, 'Desperate Housewives'' Dana Delany is in talks to play the starring role in 'Evidence.' And while ABC would have to give her time off from 'Housewives' to film the premiere hour of the series, that vacation from Wisteria Lane would surely become permanent if the network picks up the show for the fall season -- which is likely, since it comes from sibling production house ABC Studios.

Lesbian Kiss Alert on 'Desperate Housewives'! (VIDEO)

Desperate Housewives, Katherine and Robin Share a Lesbian KissWe know for a fact that Julie Benz is happy to have a more light-hearted role to sink her teeth into after her tragic demise on 'Dexter.'

So she must be super happy to have landed smack in the middle of Wisteria Lane. On last night's 'Desperate Housewives' (Sun., 10PM ET on ABC), Robin and Katherine got ... close. But is it all a dream?

It must be, because there's no way Robin is having trouble fitting into her clothes.

(S06E16) "You may envy our lives, Gaby, but it's nothing compared to how we envy yours." - Bob to Gaby

After last week's episode centered around Robin, I expected this week's installment to put the main ladies back front and center. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the 'Desperate Housewives'' writers hadn't forgotten about some of the background characters and decided to give them center stage this week.

'The Chase' offered us tidbits about Penny, Karen McCluskey, Andrew, Celia and, two of my favorite recurring characters, Bob and Lee. While introducing a new cryptic character named Sam ... For sure, he has a secret agenda that will rock Wisteria Lane.

(S06E14) "Stink, stank, stunk." - Lynette to Dr. Graham

Before going on a short hiatus, Desperate Housewives treated us with a so-so episode. This week's episode introduced an almost unrecognizable Julie Benz as stripper Robin (see above), whom Susan takes under her wing; offered us a funnily stinky performance from Frasier's Jane Leeves, which helped Tom and Lynette grow as a couple; put Angie and the Solises at odds as Danny and Ana were ready to take their relationship to the next step; and had the Bree-Orson storyline take a turn that I'm not enjoying at all.
