Diva — which stars Brooke Elliott as a vapid, dead model stuck in the body of a curvy, smart lawyer — wrapped its Season 4 run last September. The show’s producers Sony Pictures TV may attempt to shop the scrapped series elsewhere.

      • Thank you Val and Carolyn! Your memo on the Season 5 was uplifting! I think the blog gets “bogged down” with older comments if someone opens it they see the oldest first. All I can say is VIVA DROP DEAD DIVA!

  • At least they could do a two hour special and wrap it up instead of just leaving things hanging.

  • I just found out Drop Dead Diva was cancelled…it figures – they leave all the reality crap on and take the smart, witty, funny, well written and acted shows off the air…so disappointing. I loved that show! Shame on you Lifetime!!!!!!!

  • Very sad to find out drop dead diva has been cancelled!!! Loved the show. Note to sponsor’s bad move. These so called reality shows make me nausous. So many good shows being replaced by these cheap and disturbing reality shows makes me question the quality of there products and company. I get the same feeling when these so called All American company’s out source customer service jobs. Like american airlines help desk. Cant understand a word they say

  • I just watched all the DDD shows on Netflix thinking that they would be adding 2013 shows… I am so BUMMED!!! I loved Jane and her assistant. My son and I watched this and laughed all the way through because its so positive. I HATE all the back stabbing reality shows that are so popular and this was so refreshing!!! BRING JANE BACK!!!!!

    • Good grief girl – you’re a year late! Guess you missed Season 5! Have you Googled this show at all or gone to lifetimetv.com? We’re waiting on Season 6 and I don’t see that it’s been cancelled at all. Fingers crossed. That can always change on an executive’s whim at a moment’s notice, of course!
