The Desperate Housewives of Wisteria Lane might want to get their affairs in order.

According to a person familiar with ABC's plans for the drama, next season will be its last.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the network and producers hadn't authorised public comment.

ABC, which is scheduled to discuss its fall schedule at a news conference on Sunday, declined comment.

Desperate Housewives, a glossy prime-time soap opera with an ensemble cast including Teri Hatcher and Eva Longoria, made a pop-culture and ratings splash when it hit TV screens in 2004 but has since seen its audience dwindle.

There's been off-screen drama as well, with former cast member Nicolette Sheridan suing over her departure.

Its creator, Marc Cherry, is not returning to produce next season's episodes of Desperate Housewives.
