'Drop Dead Diva' is cancelled again
It's the end of the line for Lifetime's "Drop Dead Diva."
Lifetime announced this week that the show's sixth season will premiere on Sunday, March 23 with a two-hour launch.
The cable network is describing this as "the final season" for "Drop Dead Diva," which was previously cancelled after its fourth season as well. After taking a number of cost-cutting measures, "Drop Dead Diva" was brought back and even renewed for a sixth season.
In its most recent run, "Drop Dead Diva" averaged 1.99 million viewers, down from the 2.34 million who watched the fourth season.
"Drop Dead Diva" starred Brooke Elliott and Margaret Cho.
