Desperate Housewives' forthcoming eighth series could be its last.
Producers of the hit ABC drama starring Marcia Cross, Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman and Eva Longoria are considering bringing the award winning show created by Marc Cherry to an end, TVGuide.com reports.
A show insider said: "It's all dependent on the ratings. It will be up against some stiff competition."
But an ABC spokesperson told The New York Post that "no decision has been made yet, it seems like people are just guessing."
The main stars of the show have contracts with ABC that would take them through a potential ninth season, while creator Marc's contract also runs until 2013.
But Desperate Housewives has seen a significant fall in viewers since it began in 2004.
It came in as the 24th most-watched show of the 2010-2011 season according to US viewing figure monitor Nielsen, while it used to ride high in fourth place.
According to TVGuide.com, the decision to make the next season the last will be made in the next couple of weeks, giving Marc and executive producer Bob Daily time to make it a suitably grand finale.
