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.

    My name is Liz and I am 20 years old to be honest with you I have never had a favorite show where I had to see every episode, drop dead diva was that show… Absoluetly brilliant… I love it. I almost want to cry to hear that it wont come out till 2010… HORRIBLE!

    I LOVE the show. I’m 50 something…always a bit chubby and had to deal with those who thought they were better than me because they were a size 4. However, my 20 something neice and her 40 something mom love the show, too. It’s a wonderful change to find out a real live chubby gal can be the diva on tv! And maybe the world can finally accept us for our talents and stop judging us on just our dress size! CAn’t wait for next season…….hope, hope, hope Grayson sees her for who she is on the inside and loves her just as he loved Deb….
