According to our sister site Deadline, which first broke the news, Diva‘s producer Sony TV came up with a more feasible “financial model” for the show, paving the way for Lifetime’s about-face.

Thoughts? Are you enjoying this TV’s new un-cancellation trend (see also AMC’s The Killing, Fox’s Breaking In, etc)?

  • I LOVE THIS SHOW. Television is supposed to be entertaining. Most of the stupid shows on now are reality crap or blood, guts, and killing. I want to watch the tv to be amused and Drop Dead Diva does that. Thanks for changing your mind.

  • I am very happy to see drop dead diva brought back! The story line is great, the writer’s are great! The story line is ripe, for so many twists and turns, with room for other cast members to enter and leave and reenter as time passes! GREAT WORK keep up the charm and Intrigue!!! Micheal L. Brown

  • I love that she came back. I also love the way she flips her hair back with a toss of her head. It is also nice to see a lg. woman dress so classy, not in flip flops and big baggy clothes .She really is a sexy looking gal. KEEP THIS PROGRAM ON!! We all need a little light hearted fantasy in our life, along with some humor.
