Lifetime Sets Drop Dead Diva Premiere, Casts New Guardian Angel
Brooke Elliott and Jackson Hurst
Drop Dead Diva will debut its fifth season on Sunday, June 23 at 9/8c on Lifetime, the network announced Thursday.
Less than two months after Lifetime pulled the plug on Diva, the network revived the series for a 13-episode fifth season. Over the course of its run, the dramedy has developed a loyal fanbase — many of whom continued campaigning to keep the show on air following news of the cancellation. The show's fourth season averaged more than 2 million viewers last summer.
