The talented pair had the chance to reunite on the holiday Hallmark film, A Kiss Before Christmas, earlier in 2021. At the time, it had been a total of nine years since the actors had worked together. 

During an interview with E! News’ Daily Pop, Teri had discussed how the two were able to star in the same project together after so many years. 

The award-winning actress expressed that both she and James have kept in touch, even after Desperate Housewives came to an end. ‘The whole thing started because he called me, and he was like, ‘I’m producing this movie. You probably don’t want to do it, but would you even consider reading it?’ 

The mother of one then recalled telling Denton, ‘I was like, ‘Are you kidding me? This sounds like the perfect way for us to reunite!’ 

When promoting the Hallmark film, Teri explained on Good Morning America that taking on the role alongside James, ‘was really for the fans.’ 

Devoted Desperate Housewives fans don’t have to wait long until they can see their favorite TV couple reunite once again on Fantasy Island later this month.
