Lifetime has renewed Drop Dead Diva for a fourth season, the network announced Thursday.

The 13 new episodes will premiere sometime next year.

"I am so excited about the pickup," creator and executive producer Josh Berman tells TVGuide.com. "Our cliff-hanger in this Sunday's finale was three years in the making and I look forward to continuing the saga next season. Everything changes this Sunday night. It's the type of episode you'll want to watch live and not TiVo!"
