Drop Dead Diva: Lifetime Renews Series for Season Two

Drop Dead DivaIn this dramady, shallow model Deb Dobson may have met her premature demise but the network certainly wants her show to live on. Cancellation isn’t in this show’s immediate future. Lifetime has announced that they’re renewing Drop Dead Diva for a second season.

Drop Dead Diva revolves around a vapid blonde (Brooke D’Orsay) who dies in a sudden car crash. After a short time at the pearly gates, she returns to Earth with her soul placed in the body of a brilliant and overweight attorney (Brooke Elliott). At first dismayed by her new human form, Deb starts to get an education about inner beauty. Others in the series include Margaret Cho, April Bowlby, Kate Levering, Jackson Hurst, Josh Stamberg, and Ben Feldman.

Debuting on July 12th, the series got off to a great start with 2.8 million viewers. It also garnered Lifetime’s best premiere ratings in the key demo since Army Wives’ debut in 2007. Last Sunday’s episode marked the show’s best ratings to date among women 18-49, 25-54, and with 3.06 million total viewers.

    i also love the actress, Brooke Elliott a.k.a Jane.. the way she portrait Jane really touches me.. i really hope there will be season 3 >_<.. Will Grayson die? If Grayson doesn't die, how will Jane cope with Grayson and Vanessa's wedding? Or will Grayson realize Jane is Deb?

    I love this drama very much especially the actress Jane. She is cute^^. I was wondering if someone can tell me the opening song of this drama. I love that song too but I could find neither the name or the singer of the song that frustrated me a lot.

    I would appreciate if someone name the song, that Jane sang……the one that the boyfriend claimed was their song when the model was alive.

    I love Drop Dead Diva the moment I saw the sneek preview. I told my sister to watch with me but she declined the first few shows telling me it looked stupid. When I made a bet that if she didn’t love the show I’d car pool her kids for a month; my sister went online and watched. Now she is hooked! How can anyone dislike a show that make you laugh, shed a tear and leaves a feel good message. It empowers women of all types without shoving the message in our face. The witty repartee is written with fashion and style. I hope Lifetime keeps Drop Dead Diva alive!
