Julie Benz's role in Desperate Housewives has reportedly been extended.

Benz, who plays a former stripper called Robin, originally signed up for three episodes but will now stay at the drama for an undetermined length of time.

Executive producer Bob Daily told Zap2It: "We've been enjoying [Benz] so much. We've extended her at least one episode and possibly more beyond that."

He added that Robin, who initially befriends Teri Hatcher's character Susan, will soon become close to Katherine, played by Dana Delaney.

"Robin will be getting into a friendship," he explained. "That maybe turns into more than a friendship with Katherine. Katherine has had kind of a rough year and I think she's open to new experiences. She's had a rough time with men. It's going to be a sort of twisty and turny conflicted relationship for her, I think."

Desperate Housewives continues on Sundays at 9pm on ABC in the US and Wednesdays at 10pm on Channel 4 in the UK.
