Drop Dead Diva: Canceled by Lifetime

by at . Comments

We tried, Drop Dead Diva fans. But despite the pleas of TV Fanatic and creator Josh Berman, Lifetime has canceled this fun drama after four seasons.

Jane Worries

The network made the announcement last night, as the series about a dead model stuck in the body of a larger lawyer made headlines over the years for including such guest stars as Serena Williams and Kim Kardashian. It also possessed one of the more passionate fan bases on television.

But that was not enough to warrant a fifth season, unfortunately.

Sony Pictures TV may still attempt to shop he program elsewhere and we'll keep readers apprised if its status changes.

What just when the show was developing more twists and turns are you kidding. What executive made this terrible decision!!!!!!


I absolutely love this show! My husband bought me season 4 as a gift from amazon, and we are watching it again and again right now. I went online to see if there is any news about season 5, i told my husband that i couldn't wait for June until Drop Dead Diva started again and was extremely upset to see that it has been cancelled. I agree with comments that were previously written. This was a great show and I have been a loyal fan since the beginning. Lifetime needs to get some sense and bring it back!


This was one of the best television series that I have ever watched. The cast was perfect...everyone of them. I don't know who decided to cancel this but they ought to be fired! Too leave the viewers hanging like this is horrible. I purchased Season 4. Had I known, that it was going to end without an ending, I would have never spent the money. What are you people thinking? I have to say, I will have second thoughts about ever getting involved in a tv series again, thanks to lifetime.


I can't believe that you would cancel a great show like this one. I looked forward to it each week, and wished it was on daily. You have to crazy and out of your minds!!! I know many people who watched this show PLEASE BRING IT BACK!!!! All the actors and actresses were really great on this show. Please listen to the fans of your channel before the network suffers and it gets dropped as far as being watched as a network!


I watch this series at netflix and LOVED IT!! it has everything, love, exitement, intreaging story and more. When I got to season 4 after watching it like a total loonetic for one whole week I get to this. Why?!! Its increadible, how can this show be cancelled?! I watch it from sweden, from the other side of the world and still loved it so i dont really get it. This is so much better than the stupid shows that they send on other channels with jersey shore, hollywood wives etc. It has more depth than all of them.


What???? We were just talking about the show at work yesterday. This totally sucks! I really loved the show!!! I was excited to see where things were going to go with the cliff hanger. I'm totally bummed. How come they don't say why it was canceled. They just say it was canceled. Hey, I agree with another comment... get rid of Dance Moms and replace with Drop Dead Diva.


No more Drop Dead Diva..sad sad to here this. I loved this show.


Lifetime made such a MAJOR MISTAKE cancelling this fantastic show. The viewers (women and men) range from 16 y/o to over 70. Lifetime has cancelled a gold mine. I hope another (smarter) network picks it up soon. Lifetime even had the stupidity of cancelling it with a cliff hanger, idiots.


I'm starting to think the Lifetime network is run by men. How can the cancel such a great show, and season 4 was the best one yet. I was waiting for season 5. Hope another network picks it up.


I just bought season 4 on Amazon only to find out the day after the show is canceled. I think lifetime is making a mistake the end of season 4 left for an interesting story line for season 5 (Pregnant Kim and possibly the real Jane in Owens body would make for a lot of drama).
