The dead are returning to Wisteria Lane. According to TV Guide Magazine, James Denton and a mix of other guest stars whose characters have kicked the bucket are returning to "Desperate Housewives" for the series finale.
Denton's Mike was shot and killed off earlier in Season 8 -- not before having his death spoiled at former "Desperate Housewives" star Nicolette Sheridan's court hearing -- but he'll be back, along with a lot of familiar, yet dead, faces. Joining the walking "Desperate" dead are Steven Culp, Roger Bart, Richard Burgi and Lupe Ontiveros. More guest stars have yet to be revealed.
Former Wisteria Lane resident Martha Huber, played by Christine Estabrook, is also returning for the finale. Estabrook's character was the one who discovered Mary Alice Young's suicide. Martha was last seen in flashbacks at the start of Season 7.
Dana Delany, another familiar face, albeit not a dead one, is also returning for the series finale. Delany's Katherine Mayfair was last seen leaving for Paris with Robin (Julie Benz) in Season 6.
The series finale of "Desperate Housewives" airs Sun., May 13 from 9-11 p.m. ET on ABC.
