    Please RENEW!!! This is one of the few shows my husband will watch with me. It is the perfect balance of drama and comedy, plus the acting is so good! The legal cases add some great information and pose interesting legal questions. It is so creative, that you cannot know the next story line: (Owen as Jane??? How will the writers handle THAT?!)

    RENEW RENEW RENEW RENEW!!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE!!!!!! This is one of my favorite shows! Me and my mom have been watching this show from the beginning. Drop Dead Diva is the only show we watch together and we look forward to bonding over ‘Diva’ every year. I love this show and I am so happy Grayson confessed his true feelings! I need to see the real Jane in Owens body! I love this show so much, its so unique. I love how the main character is plus size but still gorgeous and has such a bold and confident personality. I like how Grayson, a good looking and in shape guy falls for Jane. It’s such a great show and has such real and unique characters. The only complaint I have is that you have to wait a year for only 13 episodes!!!! I love this show and will follow it till the end.

    It’s always so cruel when we don’t know if the show will be renewed or not and they end the series with unanswered questions running in our minds! Please bring the series back…and why do we have to wait till June?!

  4. Marcus Logan says

    Please let there be another season of Drop Dead Diva! The cliff hanger for this season four finale was so great! Can’t wait to see the real Jane come back in Owens body. Love this show please don’t take it away from me!

  5. Bobbi & Nicole says

    This mother and daughter team are Drop Dead Serious that this show MUST go on…to Season 5, 6, 7….PLEASE! We LOVE this show and spending our Sunday nights watching it together! Long Live Jane Bingham!!

I predict big battle and struggle plus I’m graycen !!!!! Finally they find each other but it can’t end with then finding each other a d us not finding out what happens next. How must keep going !!!!

  8. christina says

    i love drop dead diva!!! you have to keep it and keep making seasons :) and u should totally make kim and parker get married that would be an awesome season and intersting too!!!

  9. Gigi says

    I still enjoy this series. Just please don’t let Jane go back and forth between her two men anymore. It gets boring after a while. The story of Owen disappearing and coming back after open heart surgery was so far fetched that it almost seemed ridiculous to me. I can go for another season if the court cases are complicated, catching and interesting plots among all the characters of the show.

    I love this show. It’s funny, romantic, clever, and unique. It should definitely be renewed for a 5th season.
