Series creator Marc Cherry made the time shift so he could take new, fresher, directions with the characters.
“The soap tends to build up and I wanted to get back to where we were that very first season where it’s just the problems of some ordinary women and they were small and relatable,” said Cherry.
“And, of course, the ball will start rolling and pick up steam as the year goes on. But I thought it would be a good chance to do something interesting and give everyone some challenges.” Source
