Cast of hit series “Desperate Housewives” got together to read through season eight's last episode on Thursday, which will be aired on May13.This will mark the end to the highly entertaining show.

Marc Cherry created the series. Cherry is executive producer, along with George W. Perkins, Bob Daily, Sabrina Wind, Matt Berry, David Grossman, Jeff Greenstein and Marco Pennette. "Desperate Housewives" is a product of ABC Studios.

It is time to bid farewell to Eva Longoria, Felicity Huffman, Marcia Cross and the rest of the cast. The eight- Years long series finally comes to its end.

What a ride the last eight years has been," Felicity Huffman says on her blog Thursday after she met with Eva Longoria, Marcia Cross, Teri Hatcher and other Desperate Housewives cast members for the final read, where she got emotional and cried her eyes out.

Huffman, 49, posted a photo on Twitter, before leaving home for the last session of the show. She is seen in her pajamas and without any make-up.

Huffman tweeted, displaying a sign that read 'Last day of Desperate Housewives.4-26-12.' "Off to my last day on @ Desperate ABC. Hubby wrote a sign, just like we do with our kids on last days of school,"

Huffman recently told Us Weekly that moving away from the show's famous Wisteria Lane is "like leaving your hometown for college.” And also: “ It's been eight years, but it's been a really dense eight years, and I think series and actors live in dog years, so every one year is actually seven! We've actually been doing this series for 56 years,” she joked.

"Which also makes it a little easier to swallow because it's like, 'Oh, 56 years?! It's time to go!” she added.

Tears were shed and fans left heartbroken when it was announced earlier that the upcoming eighth series of Desperate Housewives would be the last. Those Desperate Housewives that we have come to love over the past eight years expressed their thoughts about the news.

"I felt the tears welling up," Cross said. "It's been a long ride. I think it's really bittersweet. It really feels like it should be the end so I don't feel like it's the wrong time, but it's definitely kind of sad."

Cross pledged that she will always remain friends with the cast members. She was reported saying:

"I have a feeling it's going to be like my childhood friends that I can see or not see for any length of time and then when I see them, it's like a moment hasn't past," she says. "It's like that kind of a bond now.”

"Sunday nights will be forever changed," Longoria admits. "I wonder what they're going to do with the street. This is the most beautiful set I've ever been a part of and the people and the family we've created too it's just going to be bittersweet to say goodbye."
