After four seasons on Lifetime, “Drop Dead Diva” is coming to an end. Unless producer Sony Pictures TV can find another home for the legal comedy.
Deadline broke the news and points out that “Diva” consistently drew over 2 million viewers per episode — a solid number for basic cable. Speculation about the cancellation centers around Lifetime wanting to move in a new, edgier creative direction.
Season 4 wrapped back in September and Lifetime delayed a decision on moving forward with Season 5 until they could evaluate their new pilots.
“Diva” fans are likely to be especially upset given the way Season 4 ended: Jane (Brooke Elliott) shared a kiss with Grayson (Jackson Hurst) the same day she was supposed to marry Owen (Lex Medlin), who promptly suffered a heart attack.
What do you think “Diva” fans, should another network rescue the show? Should Lifetime “Drop Dead” over this decision?
