Being cancelled and resurrected is the new black. First we had AMC's 'The Killing." Now six weeks after cancelling "Drop Dead Diva" after four seasons, Lifetime has elected to resurrect it for a fifth season after all. Deadline hears that it came down to money (surprise!) and that producing studio Sony was able to come up with more attractive terms for Lifetime after all.

    I agree with John A, I mean if you compare this show’s ratings with those of the client list much difference. glad that Lifetime is bringing back jane / deb for his fifth year. these cancellations / renewals are not very common.

    I am so glad to see that D.D.-Diva is coming back. It is such a great show! I hope it sticks around for more seasons! I am so sick of investing my time into t.v. shows and then having it cancelled.

  • Greg

    Once again, Sony is paying for networks to air their shows. Hahahaha!

  • Brian

    Very happy to hear this..and Please…NO MORE Kardashian Trash on this show!
    Then maybe we might even get a 6th season!

  • JD

    Hey Sony, feel free to do the same for Happy Endings. Get us a fourth season, please (and as if ABC has anything better to air anyways).

    Great news I hate cliffhanger endings it would have driven me mad if they had left it there after 4 seasons..To many shows have open endings then get cancelled i’m glad Drop Dead Diva gets the chance to end properly.

    It jumped the shark with that last episode. Garbage. Let it have a half season to right the ship or put it back in the toilet where it belongs.
