Drop Dead Diva
I'm surprised there's no thread on TFS for this show... I know it got cancelled a season ago, but it was such a good series!

Anyhow, I watched it from the start of season one, and watched it through to the end of season 4. i was pretty puset that it got cancelled, and so am overjoyed to hear that Lifetime has 'uncancelled' it!

Jane, Fred and gang are coming back on March 10 for season 5

Lifetime is bringing back Drop Dead Diva for a fifth season, The Hollywood Reporter confirms.

The news comes as a reversal after Lifetime canceled the hourlong drama in January after talks with studio Sony Pictures Television about cost-cutting options stalled. The decision to bring back the series suggests that the two sides have reached a new, more cost-effective agreement.

Drop Dead Diva centers on an aspiring model, Deborah "Deb" Dobkins, who was killed in a car crash and is brought back to life as lawyer Jane Bingum (Brooke Elliot). The season four finale, which marked a season-high 2.76 million viewers in September, ended on a cliffhanger with Jane's new husband Owen (Lex Medlin) dying and coming back to life with old Jane's soul.

Margaret Cho, April Bowlby, Kate Levering, Jackson Hurst, Josh Stamberg and Carter MacIntyre co-starred on the series, which made headlines when it cast Kim Kardashian in a recurring part.
For creator/executive producer Josh Berman, Drop Dead Diva's return to the small screen is a reprieve. His freshman Fox effort The Mob Doctor ended its 13-episode run Jan. 7 and likely would have been pulled sooner had the network had a deeper bench.
With Drop Dead Diva coming back, it will join scripted dramas The Client List, returning March 10; the recently rebooted Army Wives;

Drop Dead Diva is the latest show to come back from cancellation. AMC is prepping its third season of The Killing, which had been axed before the network reversed its decision.

'Drop Dead Diva' Gets Return Date; '90210's' Justin Deeley Joins as New Angel
Saved from cancelation, the fantastical series returns for Season 5 on June 23

By Jethro Nededog

The irony of Lifetime's dramedy about a woman who gets a second chance at life and the show's own return from cancelation isn't lost on us.

Fans should be happy to hear that "Drop Dead Diva" returns to Lifetime on Sunday, June 23 at 9/8c.

Additionally, the series from "Bones" producer Josh Berman just revealed that it's bringing on a new angel. Justin Deeley has been cast to replace Carter McIntyre (who replaced Ben Feldman on Season 4) as Jane's (Brooke Elliot) guardian angel.

Fans may recognize Deeley, 27, from his recurring role as Austin on The CW's "90210." He also has three movies due out this year: "Thriftstore Cowboy," "The Wicked," and "Geography Club."

McIntyre will return for one episode to presumably resolve his storyline.

Series regulars Elliott, Margaret Cho, Jackson Hurst, Kate Levering, April Bowlby and Lex Medlin are returning. In addition, John Ratzenberger reprises his role as Kim’s (Levering) father, while Jamie Ray Newman is back as Grayson's (Hurst) ex-fiancée Vanessa.

Lifetime canceled "Drop Dead Diva" in January. But, the show's producer, Sony Pictures Television, in tandem with its fans fought to find ways to bring it back. The series was a solid performer for Lifetime last season averaging more than 2 million viewers an episode.

Here's Lifetime's description of what to expect on Season 5.

The series’ fifth season opener, entitled “Back from the Dead,” picks up from last season’s cliff hanger finale with Jane (Elliott) frantically searching for her missing fiancé Owen (Medlin), who disappeared after witnessing her kiss Grayson (Hurst) moments before their wedding. While both Jane and Owen nurse their broken hearts, Jane’s friends and co-workers also are confronted with their own life dilemmas. Kim (Levering) goes public with her pregnancy at the firm as Grayson continues to struggle with his feelings for Jane. Meanwhile, Stacy (Bowlby) is left contemplating the future of her business, The Pakery. Newcomer Justin Deely (90210) joins Drop Dead Diva as Jane’s new heavenly guide Paul, stepping in for Luke (Carter McIntyre) when he is called back to Heaven just after telling her that Old Jane has returned to earth. Now that Jane and Old Jane are both on earth, the two kindred spirits will finally meet face-to-face, creating one of the most highly anticipated Drop Dead Diva moments ever.
