In the upcoming season of Desperate Housewives, everything on Wisteria Lane is about to change as the story line is fast forwarded five years. While the main characters will stay the same, the children of the picture-perfect street are all being replaced with older kids — including Tom and Lynette Scavo’s four children. Actor Doug Savant — who plays Tom on the hit show — is "devastated" that "our children" had to learn the ropes of Hollywood at such a young age saying, "Once you get a job, you’ll ultimately be fired or the show will end and you will lose your job!"

While Tom is not looking forward to starting the new season without his TV sons, he is excited about his upcoming "moment of the summer" with his real-life 7-year-old son Jack Douglas.

Doug’s wife and Jack’s mother is actress Laura Leighton who together also have daughter Lucy Jane, 3. Doug has two daughters — Arianna Josephine, 16, and Madeline Marie, 15 — with his ex-wife Dawn Dunkin.
