Drop Dead Diva: Lifetime Series Ending Again

THR reports that Drop Dead Diva will end after the upcoming sixth season. The final 13 episodes will start airing on Sunday, March 23rd. Guests will include Rick Springfield, S. Epatha Merkerson, John Ratzenberger, Corbin Bleu, Colin Egglesfield, Virginia Williams and Jay DeMarcus.

Starring Brooke Elliott, Drop Dead Diva revolves around a self-centered model who dies and then returns to life as an attorney. Others in the cast include Margaret Cho, April Bowlby, Kate Levering, Jackson Hurst, Lex Medlin, and Justin Deeley.

Produced by Sony Pictures Television, the show was canceled when Lifetime and the studio couldn’t come to a deal for season five. A few months later, the series was resurrected with a more cost-effective agreement.

It was later renewed for a sixth season but ratings have been on the decline. The fourth season averaged 2.3 million viewers but season five fell to under two million.

What do you think? Are you sorry that Drop Dead Diva is ending again? Would you like to see it continue or is it time for the show to finish for good?

    I enjoyed the show very much but I think it was time to either drop it or change the format. It was getting very complicated. I enjoyed the court cases with Jane solving with Stays help once inawhile.

    This is the show I always look forward to watching. I hope they change their mind and continue for another season. Sunday nights just won’t be same. They always cancel the good shows in favor of dirtier series.

    They need to continue the series. It is one of the best series on TV right now and would be a crime to end it now.
