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 just discovered this show a few weeks ago, and since then, I have gone back and binged watch the whole first season and loved every minute of it. It has gotten better with each episode, and I’m so glad people are tuning in…

    I loved the season finale, it really set up next season great. That scene where Grayson accidentally revealed to Stacy that he

    I love this show! I was devastated when we got rid of cable, but it’s awesome that I can watch the episodes online. I was thinking the same thing…about Jane’s mom mentioning something to her about the marriage, especially with the whole Tony thing. But they did say that Jane never really communicated with her mom. They weren’t very close. So it is possible that something happened and her mom didn’t know about it.
    I love Grayson. I also love Tony. And now this Ethan guy is really cute! Ahh what’s going to happen? I don’t like it when a show is in the hands of someone else :) Does anyone know approximately when the second season is going to air?
