nexGTvStar World strengthens Sunday lineup with return of 'Desperate Housewives'

MUMBAI: The Desperate Housewives are back once again to sizzle Star World's screens. It will air every Sunday from 5 March at 10 pm. It will have repeats on Mondays at 1pm, Saturdays at 5 pm and Sundays at noon.

The new schedule for Sunday means that the show follows Oprah Primetime and Rendezvous With Simi Garewal thus presenting a non stop treat. The repeat episodes from the first season of Lost will air soon after Desperate Housewives. This means one high profile offering after another on a night when the channel believes that it could have its strongest potential viewership.

Earlier this year Desperate Housewives won the Golden Globe for television series - musical or comedy and the Screen Actor's Guild Awards for Felicity Huffman and also for the ensemble in a comedy series.

In the second season, the show's writers introduce numerous new interesting storylines for the housewives. The perfect housewife Bree played by Marcia Cross will hit the bottle in the new season after first struggling to come to terms with her husband's death and then her new fiancé dying of an overdose.

Another angle revolves around the flirtatious Edie's relationship with Susan's ex-husband Karl. A pregnant Gabrielle played by Eva Longoria is battling similar desires when she discovers, after deciding to be faithful to her jailed husband, that the one lawyer who can help set him free might be her ideal man.

The new season solves the mystery of the new residents on Wisteria Lane, Betty Applewhite played by Alfre Woodard and her sons Matthew and Caleb, the latter whom she keeps tied up in her basement. Susan's ex-husband will play a more prominent role this season.

Also, Edie (Nicollette Sheridan) will finally get a new home, rebuilt since the fire in the series premiere. Her seven year old son will also appear this season.
