    Who is making these decisions? Who thought “Let’s cancel Drop Dead Diva a creative, funny, heartwarming show and replace it with……another mindless “reality” show like…….Double Divas? This is a decision Lifetime can be really proud of.

    Everyone that knows me knows I don’t like TV much. This was one of the only shows I faithfully watched since the very first episode. I loved it! Please bring it back. It is such a wonderful series. I’ll follow this show anywhere. Great acting and story. I’m so sad this was cancelled. I hope you listen to the viewers and bring it back! I’m going to miss this show so much!

    I love Drop Dead Diva!! It is my favorite show because it is so different from any other TV show I’ve watched! I’m so tired of having to choose between a reality show (enough already!) or a violence ridden series. It’s a fresh and fun show, a break from the worn out same old, same old. Drop Dead Diva is more up beat, original andhappy show!!!! Please renew for a 5th season! I really look forward to watching all week!!!!!

  4. Jurica says

    Please!!! You must have the 5th season! You can’t just leave the audience hanging like that. This show has to be one of the greatest show today. I haven’t seen one that’s worth taking up my time, but this one is!!

  6. Jasmine says

    There has to be a 5th season!!!! I have to know what happens with owen,and with the real Jane in Owens body! omg and Kim having Parkers baby…such a CLIFFHANGER without a 5th season!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Please don’t cancel the show. It has a good story line to it. There are so many shows now a days that aren’t that great. It seems like everytime there is a good show, the networks cancel them. If your having troubles with the ratings of the show, advertise the show more. It is like the same story with Ugly Betty, it was an amazing show but people forgot about it because it wasn’t advertised more then it got cancelled. Don’t get rid of a really good quality show with a good message please

    Put me in for a season 5…. While we’re at it, it would sure be nice if their would be less time in between seasons, but we’ll wait if necessary . BTW, I’m Female and 54 yrs young.

    This show is an entertaining twist on the typical lawyer/courtroom program. I’d like too watch more episodes with “Jane’s” lovely singing voice. I have watched all episodes at least 3 x – the show has real staying power and creative potential. Th are so few new programs with this much fun. PLEASE KEEP ITimdb!!!

    Please please please don’t leave us hanging! I LOVE this show and would love to see more of it! I believe I’m not only speaking for myself but for other viewers as well :)
