'Drop Dead Diva' Season 5: Lifetime Resurrects Josh Berman Drama

Lifetime is resurrecting "Drop Dead Diva" for Season 5, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Josh Berman series was cancelled on January 15, although at the time it was reported that Lifetime had approached production studio Sony Pictures TV about cost-cutting measures to renew the show.

According to Deadline, "Lifetime’s decision to cancel Diva was a business one, with network sources stressing at the time that they were open to reconsidering if Sony TV came up with a new financial model."

Now it seems that Sony and Lifetime were able to reach mutually beneficial arrangement to bring "Diva" back for a fifth year. The deal reportedly comes after two weeks of of talks.

In Season 4, the series averaged over 2 million viewers per episode. No word yet on a potential premiere date.
