The third season of Desperate Housewives, an American television series created by Marc Cherry, premiered on September 24, 2006 and concluded on May 20, 2007. The season consisted of 23 episodes and two specials, which aired on September 3, 2006 and April 1, 2007. The series continues to focus on Wisteria Lane residents Susan Mayer, Lynette Scavo, Bree Hodge and Gabrielle Solis. Mary Alice Young continues to serve as the series' narrator, with the exception of one episode, "My Husband, the Pig", in which Rex Van de Kamp takes over the narration. The mystery in this season involves Bree's new husband, Orson Hodge.
Ratings for the series fell considerably during season three, with a 22 percent loss of viewership toward the end of the season. Nevertheless, the show maintained its position as a top ten series and became the tenth most-watched program for the 2006-07 American television season, with an average of 17.5 million viewers per episode.
Season three was released on DVD as the six-disc box set Desperate Housewives: The Complete Third Season - The Dirty Laundry Edition in Region 1 by Buena Vista Home Entertainment on September 4, 2007, in Region 4 on October 31, 2006, in Region 2 on November 5, 2006, and in Region 5 on December 4, 2006.

Marc Cherry returned as the series' showrunner and executive producer. After leaving the episodic writing to his staff during the second season, he returned as a writer as well. Michael Edelstein and Tom Spezialy, who served as executive producers for seasons one and two, did not return for the series' third season due to creative differences. They were replaced by Kevin Murphy and George W. Perkins, both of whom had previously served as co-executive producers in earlier seasons. John Pardee, Joey Murphy, and Chris Black continued to serve as co-executive producers. Larry Shaw and David Grossman, both of whom previously served as producers and directors for the series, were promoted to co-executive producers, with Bob Daily rounding out the team. All but Black, Grossman, Perkins, and Shaw also served as writers for the third season. Alexandra Cunningham, Jenna Bans, Kevin Etten, Josh Senter, and Dahvi Waller returned to the writing staff and were joined by Susan Nirah Jaffee, Brian A. Alexander, Christian McLaughlin, Valerie Ahern, and Jeff Greenstein. Bans and Etten also served as story editors. Shaw and Grossman continued to direct episodes, as did Wendey Stanzler. New directors for the third season included David Warren, Sanaa Hamri, and Matthew Diamond.
The main cast of Desperate Housewives season three comprises the same characters as in previous seasons. Orson Hodge has become a series regular after a recurring role in season two. New characters include Austin McCann, Alma and Gloria Hodge, Kayla and Nora Huntington, Detective Ridley, Ian Hainsworth, Carolyn Bigsby, Travers McLain and Victor Lang. Due to their many appearances in the show, Laurie Metcalf, Kathryn Joosten, Dougray Scott and Kiersten Warren were nominated along with the rest of the cast for the Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Ensemble - Comedy Series this year as well, an honor that usually goes only to series regulars.
