Drop Dead Diva: Un-Cancelled by Lifetime, Picked up for Season Five

Drop Dead Diva season fiveIt looks like the fans have won. Lifetime and Sony have worked out a deal for season five of Drop Dead Diva. The cable series was cancelled less than two months ago.

Following the cancellation, series creator Josh Berman said that he was remaining hopeful that a new home could be found for the series. He was keeping busy writing scripts and thinking about future guest stars.

According to Deadline, Lifetime had said that they were open to reconsidering their decision to cancel the show if Sony TV could come up with a new financial model. Apparently a deal was worked out that could work for both sides.

There’s no word yet on how many episodes of Drop Dead Diva have been ordered, when they’ll go into production or air.

This is the fourth time that Sony TV has been successful in reviving cancelled TV shows — Unforgettable on CBS, Breaking In on FOX and Damages, which moved from FX to DirecTV.

What do you think? Are you glad to hear that Drop Dead Diva has been saved? Do you think this will or should be the final season?

    I’m so glad that Drop Dead Diva is back! I purchased the 4th season on Amazon because I had missed a couple of episodes. It’s my favorite show! I spend very little time watching TV, but this is definitely one show that I actually take the time to watch! I would like to see it continue after season 5! I love the characters, especially Jane. This is a fabulous cast!
