'Desperate Housewives:' Nicollette Sheridan Won't Return for Final Season
"I had an amazing time playing that character… but she's dead," Sheridan says on the "Today" show Monday.
Nicollette Sheridan won't be returning for the eighth and final season of Desperate Housewives.
When asked on the Today show Monday about Marc Cherry saying at TCA over the weekend she'd be back for the finale, Sheridan told Kathie Lee Gifford and Billy Bush (filling in for Hoda Kotb), "That's news to me."
Bush pressed her. "If asked, would you come back?"
"I had an amazing time playing that character. I loved her dearly, but they killed her! She's dead," Sheridan said.
Bush said she could come back in a flashback, or it could have been a dream that she died.
"Is this turning into a daytime soap opera?" Sheridan deadpanned.
"In other words, she's saying no!" said Gifford.
Sheridan's character Edie Britt was brutally killed off the ABC hit after five seasons amid rumors of feuding with Cherry, against whom she filed a $20 million wrongful termination lawsuit.
