Desperate Housewives gets set for US return.
Marcia Cross, Nicollette Sheridan, Teri Hatcher, Eva Longoria and Felicity Huffman will return to television screens in the US later this month for Desperate Housewives.
And by the looks of things the fourth season will be the raunchiest yet.
Trailers being shown in the States now feature Teri Hatcher's character, Susan Mayer, lounging on a bed in her lingerie with her legs in the air.
Lynette Scavo - played by Felicity Huffman - is seen wearing a short black wig.
And the mystery surrounding the apparent suicide of Nicollette Sheridan's character, Edie Britt, looks set to be resolved.
She appeared to kill herself in a cliff-hanger episode at the end of series three.
In previews she is seen attaching a scarf around her neck and standing on a chair before the camera cuts to her leg, dangling in the air.
Creator Marc Cherry has promised the Wisteria Lane-set show will return with a bang.
He recently revealed that Sheridan's character will return to the show.
And he told how a gay couple is also set to move into Wisteria Lane, and are set to shake things up.
Cherry told a US newspaper: "I'm going to have the first male Desperate Housewife. They move on the street, and they have as many issues as any couple."
The new season premieres in the US on September 30 and is expected to air in the UK next year.
It has been advertised with the slogan: "It's A Hell Of A Day In The Neighbourhood".
It had been speculated that Edie might replace Brenda Strong, whose character Mary Alice has been narrating the show from beyond the grave since the series began.
Meanwhile, the reason Bree (Marcia Cross) has staged a fake pregnancy will be explained and Felicity Huffman's Lynette will continue her battle with cancer, Cherry added.
