at . Comments

When Drop Dead Diva Season 5 kicks off on June 23, one familiar face will be missing:

The Wrap confirms that Josh Stamberg will not return to the Lifetime series as law firm managing partner Jay Parker, despite the reveal on the Season 4 finale that Kim Kaswell is carrying his child.

The casting decision was made for budgetary reasons.

Veteran actors John Ratzenberger and Sandra Bernhard will also stop by the fun Lifetime series.
