Check out a the photos of the show's core stars – Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, Marcia Cross and Eva Longoria – when the series debuted (left) in 2004 and a new shot taken this year (right). They still look as sizzling as the day all the drama started.
While saying goodbye to Wisteria Lane isn't easy, Hatcher tells PEOPLE that embodying the role of Susan Mayer was "an opportunity that anyone would have been lucky to be a part of. I am at the top of the grateful list."
Here are a few thoughts from Hatcher and her fellow castmates about their years on the iconic show.

As the May 13 series finale of Desperate Housewives nears, Teri Hatcher says it is finally starting to sink in.
"Every day it gets to be a little more real," Hatcher, 47, recently told PEOPLE at the Wisteria Lane Block Party benefiting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation at Universal Studios in L.A.
"We've had a lot of time to process it, so it's not a shock. But I think you just can't really know what it's going to feel like until it's over."

When in Berlin … eat currywurst! Teri Hatcher was visiting Germany, where she indulged in some a local favorite: a sausage sliced up and topped with curry powder, Ketchup and Worcestershire sauce – and served with French fries, of course. And she washed it all down with champagne. The Desperate Housewives star also hit up a prime tourist spot: the remnants of the Berlin Wall at the East Side Gallery. – Karen Nickel Anhalt

Teri Hatcher doesn't like to spoil her 12-year-old daughter Emerson. But this was pretty big.
"I got her a chance to get a picture with Justin Bieber," Hatcher, 45, told PEOPLE in New York at Wednesday's Digital Content Newfront Conference launch of her new Web site, GetHatched. "That was a highlight, and I scored some big points with her."
Um, you think? The Desperate Housewives star figures she's now covered in the favors department for, oh, probably a decade. "I told her, 'That's it, nothing else until your wedding. There's nothing between Justin Bieber and after college,' " she said with a laugh.

She's a been a familiar face for more than 20 years, with recurring roles on such TV classics as L.A. Law and ER, and a current role on ABC's Lost. But over the past eight years, Sheila Kelley has been known around Hollywood for a very different skill: Teaching pole-dancing to the stars.
Her list of devotees includes Teri Hatcher, Lindsay Lohan, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Kate Hudson, who has proven especially adept at working the pole.
"She just loves being feminine. Every movement for her is beautiful and sexy," Kelley, 48, says about the Nine star. "The excitement of sharing it [with her boyfriend] was big for her. She wanted to do a routine, to share it.”
Kelley started her own training company, S Factor, after researching strip clubs for a role. "I was a dance major at NYU, and had done every dance you can imagine," says Kelley. "I have never done anything so beautiful as this. I never had the kind of long, lean muscles I have now – and I still have the curves."

Turning 45 and desperate to mark the milestone, Teri Hatcher put her pedal to the metal and reached her goal – completing the grueling Malibu Triathlon in a respectable 2 hours, 11 minutes.
"I wasn't panicked about [turning 45] – it just seemed like a milestone," the Desperate Housewives star tells Prevention magazine for its February issue. "The older you get, the more you become aware of the things you can't change and the things you can change."
While not exactly sporting Michelle Obama biceps yet, Hatcher is still grooving on her new strong-armed look. "Just the other day on the set, Marcia [Cross] looked at me and said, 'It's great that you're so strong now,' " said Hatcher. "I like my arms."

Is Teri Hatcher's junk another woman's treasure?
On Saturday, the Desperate Housewives star hosted her first garage sale at her home in Studio City, raising some $20,000 for a selection of Los Angeles charities.
Invited guests paid $50 to enter and browse through items including Coach purses, Disney hotel packages and boots signed by her Housewives costar Eva Longoria Parker.
Okay, so it was a Hollywood garage sale.

Teri Hatcher and a friend were recently discussing what would be on her "bucket list," a list of things to do before she dies.
So what's on it? "I want to learn to play a couple of songs on the guitar. I want to learn a few of those fancy dances from one of those Dancing with the Stars teachers. And I want to run a triathlon," the Desperate Housewives star tells PEOPLE.
The timing was perfect for Hatcher, when her show's parent company Disney asked her to lead a team in this year's Nautica Malibu Triathlon on Sept. 13. In addition to checking off an activity from her bucket list, 44-year-old Hatcher is also raising money to benefit the Children's Hospital Los Angeles.

With Sunday night bringing the final episode of Desperate Housewives to star original cast member Nicollette Sheridan – who is leaving the show for good – her neighbors on Wisteria Lane gathered to pay brief tribute to her during a panel discussion about Housewives at the Paley Center for Media in Los Angeles.
According to James Denton (the actor whose plumber Mike on the ABC show was the object of Sheridan's character Edie's insatiable lust), at the table-read of the first script that would not feature Sheridan, she took a moment to address the writers and actors. "She said, 'While you're all together, I'm here to say thank you for everything. You guys are great. You guys are awesome,' " Denton said.
"She walked out of the room, and Felicity [Huffman] looked at me and said, 'Classy,' and it sure was."
