PASADENA, Calif. — The producers of "Desperate Housewives" say the series' finale will leave a few loose ends hanging, but cautioned fans against awaiting a reunion movie.

Creator Marc Cherry says eight seasons have given the ABC series time to "plumb the depths" of the characters played by Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman and others in the ensemble cast.

Cherry says he's very satisfied with where the series stands. He contrasted "Desperate Housewives" with "Sex and the City," which did fewer episodes and followed its HBO run with two big-screen movies.

Referring to "Sex and the City 2," which was set in the Middle East and received largely negative reviews, Cherry quipped: "I'm just never sending these gals to Dubai."

"Desperate Housewives" will air its final episode this spring.
