Viewers can expect more intrigue and mysterious shootings on Wisteria Lane.

Eva Longoria and her co-stars have reportedly signed a deal worth £12m to stay on cult show Desperate Housewives.

The four lead actresses will pocket the figure for appearing in two more series.

That is £250,000 per episode for Eva, Marcia Cross, Teri Hatcher and Felicity Huffman.

Months of intense negotiations have gone into the deal, which makes them highest paid actresses on TV.
