This year marks the 15th anniversary of Desperate Housewives' premiere episode — and while Teri Hatcher (Susan Mayer), Eva Longoria (Gabrielle Solis), Felicity Huffman (Lynette Scavo), and Marcia Cross (Bree Van de Kamp), were the main focus of the ABC series, the supporting cast of kids were known to steal the spotlight every so often.
From Andrew Van de Kamp seducing his mother's boyfriend to Julie Mayer and Porter Scavo's secret relationship, these Wisteria Lane offspring didn't fall too far from their parents' drama-filled tree.
So, what is the next generation of the Scavo, Solis, Van de Kamp, and Delfino families up to today? Keep scrolling to find out:
1. Julie Mayer (Andrea Bowen)
Susan's daughter Julie ended the series welcoming her first child with Lynette's son, Porter — and today actress Andrea Bowen has appeared in several TV shows and movies since her time on Wisteria Lane including Scandal, Pretty Little Addict, and Winter Wedding.
2. Andrew Van de Kamp (Shawn Pyfrom)
Where do we start with Andrew? From running over Carlos Solis' mom to seducing his mom's boyfriend, this teenager was definitely a handful on Desperate Housewives. Fast forward nearly two decades, and Shawn is still acting, most recently filming the moving Hellbent alongside Grey's Anatomy alum Martin Henderson.
3. Preston Scavo (Brent Kinsman)
Thanks to a time jump, more than one set of twins played the rambunctious Preston and Porter Scavo. First up, Brent Kinsman, who was 7 years old alongside his brother, went he first appeared on Wisteria Lane. Today, he has left the acting behind and currently attending California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo.
4. Porter Scavo (Shane Kinsman)
Just like Brent, Shawn is also attending university at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and his last acting credit was in a 2008 episode of ER.
5. Preston Scavo (Max Carver)
The Kinsmans were replaced by the Carver twins. Max knew how to rock a mustache as Preston on the series, and now he is all grown up and set to appear in the upcoming TV series Blooms.
6. Porter Scavo (Charlie Carver)
Charlie's storyline toward the finale of Desperate Housewives revolved around his secret relationship with Julie Mayer and their unplanned pregnancy. Since then, Charlie has appeared in Teen Wolf and will appear alongside his brother in the TV show Blooms.
7. Parker Scavo (Zane Huett)
Before the five-year leap, Parker— the most sensitive of the Scavo boys — was portrayed by Zane Huett. It seems that Zane's acting career was short-lived and he shifted his focus to music as a member of the band The Boulevards.
8. Juanita Solis (Madison De La Garza)
Did you know that Madison, aka Juanita Solis, is Demi Lovato's little sister? Since playing Eva Longoria's daughter on the series, Madison has gone on to make a name for herself in Hollywood, appearing in Bad Teacher, American Koko, and Good Luck Charlie.
9. Celia Solis (Daniella Baltodano)
Madison's on-screen sister Daniella is just your average teenager today, having recently graduated from high school and posting photos with her friends on Instagram.
10. Grace Sanchez (Cecilia Balagot)
In typical Desperate Housewives fashion, it was revealed that Grace was actually Carlos and Gabrielle's biological daughter, who was switched at birth with Juanita. Today, Cecilia is preparing to graduate high school, and does a little bit of acting on the side. She most famously starred in Girl Meets World as Isadora Smackle from 2014 to 2017.
11. Zach Young (Cody Kasch)
Desperate Housewives kicks off with his mother Mary Alice's suicide but it's not long until fans discover that Zach was really born Dana Taylor, is the son of Mike Delfino, and was sold by his mom to Mary Alice and Paul Young.
Today, actor Cody Kasch is working on two upcoming projects: Hollywood.Con and The 420 Movie: Mary and Jane.
12. M.J. Delfino (Mason Vale Cotton)
How cute was M.J. on Desperate Housewives? Mason went on to be a familiar face on the small screen, appearing in Mad Men as Don Draper's son Bobby following his time on Wisteria Lane. Today, he is just your average football-loving teenager.
13. Penny Scavo (Darcy Rose Byrnes)
Darcy was the last of four actresses to portray Penny — the Scavoses only daughter — over the course of eight seasons. According to her Instagram bio, she is now a "multi-instrumental singer-songwriter, dancer, and musical improviser and comedian."
14. Kayla Huntington (Rachel G. Fox)
Tom Scavo's oldest daughter — from his relationship with Nora Huntington 12 years prior — Kayla and her mom get much closer to the Scavo family than Lynette would like. Today, Rachel seems to be taking an acting hiatus and sharing travel photos on Instagram.
15. Matthew Applewhite (Mehcad Brooks)
The Applewhite family had their share of secrets, but it was Matthew who was hiding the fact that he killed Melanie Foster and not his disabled brother, Caleb. Ultimately he killed trying to runaway with Bree's daughter Danielle.
Since his last appearance in Season 2, Mehcad has been keeping busy, with roles in The Game, Necessary Roughness, and more recently, Supergirl.
16. Sam Allen (Sam Page)
