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 love the show. Why is it taking so long for season 2 to begin? I am a 63-year-old female and when I like something that makes me feel good like she does, I think it should be on like 4 times/year, or at least 3 times a year. She is so great and plays such a wonderful part. I just really, really like drop-dead-diva. She is pretty, witty, smart, kind, caring and funny. I wish I had a friend like diva. So more power to you….I wish all of you much success. Please don’t ever let them take you off the air.

    Faithfull viewer, diane
