Lifetime’s Drop Dead Diva will expire after season 6.
Marking the show’s second cancellation, the series will officially come to a conclusion this year, the network confirmed Thursday. The program starring Brooke Elliott has told the story of shallow model Deb, who died in an accident only to find her soul reincarnated in the body of a brilliant, plus-sized attorney. Lifetime briefly axed the show after its fourth season, then reversed course.
The final season will get underway with a plus-sized two-hour premiere on March 23. Colin Egglesfield, Virginia Williams and Corbin Bleu guest star in the season opener. Later on in the season there will be guest appearances by Rick Springfield and Jay DeMarcus. The most recent fifth season has averaged 2 million viewers.
Lifetime also recently announced plans to conclude another veteran drama, Army Wives, while the network has ordered the dystopian thriller The Lottery as well as a scripted take on TV dating shows called Un-Real.
