The actresses of Desperate Housewives have admitted that they’re having trouble letting go of their Wisteria Lane roles, but Hatcher isn’t mourning for too long.

Teri Hatcher for Jane by DesignIt’s really happening — Desperate Housewives is ending in a matter of weeks, and the women of Wisteria Lane will soon be going their separate ways in Hollywood, reading for new roles and taking on different projects.

Teri Hatcher has already booked her next gig, and it’ll be double the fun for the actress: She will appear as a guest star on ABC Family’s fashion-centric drama Jane By Design, and also make her directorial debut on an upcoming episode of the show!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hatcher will play the role of Jane’s long-lost mother and will appear in four upcoming episodes. She will begin filming her arc between mid-May through mid-June, and her first appearance on the show will air on June 19.

And though she’s excited for her first acting role post-Housewives, Hatcher is equally excited to get behind the camera as well, making this her directorial debut.
