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?

So glad that Drop Dead Diva will return. It is the best “lighhearted” show on the air. No stupidity here. The writting is very consistent. I definitely “root” for all of the characters, unlike The Good Wife.

I hope it doesn’t get cancelled because other than Army wives or the client list the other shows on lifetime really stink those are the only two I currently still watch on lifetime. I used to watch drop dead diva along with every other female in my family. Please don’t cancel the show it’s one of the few that are great and I look forward to watching every week it comes on. I personally think if lifetime continues to get shows like they currently have they could lose viewers. Just my opinion. Thank you for your time.
