"Drop Dead Diva" will live again for a sixth season

Lifetime has officially renewed comedic drama with a 13 episode order.

The Sony Pictures Television production centers on a wannabe model who dies in an accident and finds her soul transferred to the recently-deceased body of a brilliant, plus-size attorney. It stars Brooke Elliott, Margaret Cho, Jackson Hurst, April Bowlby, Justin Deeley, Lex Medlin and Kate Levering.

"Diva" currently airs Sunday nights at 9pm ET/PT, and will wrap up its fifth season Sunday, November 3, when a surprise visitor from Jane’s past drops in and turns her life upside-down.
Josh Berman ("Bones") created the series and serves as executive producer, alongside Craig Zadan and Neil Meron ("Steel Magnolias"), and Robert J. Wilson are executive producers. 

"Drop Dead Diva" will return sometime next year.
