You just can’t keep Vanessa Williams down.

The 49-year-old actress just wrapped up filming the finale of the hit prime time soap, Desperate Housewives, and is already gearing up for her next series, 666 Park Ave., also on ABC. Williams made a similar career move when she quickly transitioned from the cancelled hit series Ugly Betty to Housewives.

666 Park Ave. focuses on an apartment building whose tenants experience scary supernatural occurrences, according to Hollywood Reporter.

“It’s about an iconic building in New York,” she explains. “And in order to get into the building, you have to make a few sacrifices. And I own the building, so you have to get through me.”

The spooky series sounds like a far cry from the suburban drama of Desperate Housewives. Describing the finale, she shared: “We were all part of it, and it was fantastic.”

The Desperate Housewives finale airs Sunday at 9 p.m. on ABC.
