Earlier this month, the drama's creator Marc Cherry confirmed that Desperate Housewives will end after its upcoming eighth season.
Daily has now told TV Line that there is no guarantee that all the residents of Wisteria Lane will make it to the finale.
However, he explained that he has no plans to kill off the main characters, played by Teri Hatcher, Marcia Cross, Eva Longoria and Felicity Huffman.
"We feel very protective of our four main women," Daily said. "Which is not to say that one of our [other] main, top ten characters won't bite it. We have talked about that."
Daily also revealed that a time jump in the series finale "has been discussed", saying: "Viewers have spent eight years' worth of Sundays on Wisteria Lane and we feel like that street is a character on the show.
"And whether the women [are still there] or not, we want to give them some kind of sense of what will be happening on Wisteria Lane in the future... and leave them with the feeling that life goes on."
Housewives star Kathryn Joosten recently admitted that she is "glad" that the show is coming to a close, although Cross described the end as "bittersweet" and Huffman confessed that she "cried" when she heard the news.
The final season of Desperate Housewives will premiere on September 25 on ABC.
