The couple's marriage troubles came to a head in the recent season seven finale, with Lynette (Felicity Huffman) agreeing to a separation. However, speaking to TV Guide, Daily reassured fans that the show's writers will find a way to reunite the couple.
"Tom and Lynette will not be divorcing," he said. "But when we come back next year, they will be going through a separation. Tom will be living elsewhere for a while.
"And I do think one or both at some point will dip their toes into the world of mid-life dating. But we will also look for them to find ways to fall in love again."
Discussing what else fans can expect, Daily teased that the secret of Alejandro's death will take its toll on the inhabitants of Wisteria Lane.
"From season one, this show has always been about secrets," he said. "The question now will be what will they do with this body? It will take a toll on them next season."
Hinting that Bree's relationship with Detective Chuck Vance could play a role, he remarked: "That will prove an interesting wrinkle."
Desperate Housewives will return to ABC in the fall.
