Drop Dead Diva: Cancelled Show’s Creator Still Hopeful About Season Five

drop dead diva Though Lifetime has cancelled Drop Dead Diva after four seasons, show creator Josh Berman is still hopeful that there will be a fifth season.

In a recent interview, Berman said that he was “completely shocked and blindsided” by the cancellation and notes that “a lot of channels have expressed interest.”

He also says that Drop Dead Diva’s studio, Sony, is being “smart and aggressive. They will find a home. It could go back on Lifetime. They’ve given me nothing but positive feedback. I like the people over there. It’s got a good audience on Lifetime. Nothing’s being ruled out.”

Berman shared that he’s continuing to write scripts for a fifth season and keeps tabs on potential guest stars. The sets and wardrobe also continue to be stored in Peachtree City in Georgia where the show was filmed.

While he is thinking positively about the show’s chances for survival, Berman notes, “We need to resolve this real quickly.”

What do you think? Do you think Drop Dead Diva will be back for a fifth season? On Lifetime or another channel?

    I guarantee you that Lifetime will lose this viewer. I’ve had enough of the crap television that this network airs. DDD was the only reason I tuned in…now if it goes, I go.

    I am sick my husband just looked up the show to find out the date and time for this seasons show. He looked over at me as if someone i knew may have passed away. He said come here you need to look at this yourself. I am sure I have read it wrong, but he hadn’t. He is sick as I am . What could lifetime be thinking as far as I am concerned as of late Drop Dead Diva is possibly one of the only shows they have left to watch. As I read on one of the other comments we have enough reality in our own lives all those reality shows they are running are just as ignorant as they can be . Then lets not forget the movie. If they are not reruns of old movies back to back they are she left him, the nanny left with him etc. Drop Dead Diva is light airy and has just been fun. I am sure you will get a lot more comments. I am on the phone with all my friends now. These would be friends that spend money on products sponsors of the show advertise.

    I agree, PLEASE PLEASE bring the show back! It was a good light hearted show which we need instead of more stupid reality shows or blood and guts shows. We have too much of that in our lives.
