Bowen, who plays Susan's daughter Julie, is not a series regular in the programme's upcoming new season.
However, Bob Daily told Entertainment Weekly that he expects her to return for future episodes.
"We try to find something for her every year if we can," he said. "We have this revolving repertory company of people that keep reappearing - like Danielle Katz, who's coming back for an episode as Bree's daughter."
Desperate Housewives returns for a new season on September 26 on ABC.
