'Drop Dead Diva' renewed (or I would've smacked someone)

drop-dead-divaImage Credit: LifetimeThe season 2 finale of Lifetime’s Drop Dead Diva had the unfortunate luck of going up against the Emmys last month. Which is why it wasn’t until days later that I finally had a chance to watch it and scream. Jane (Brooke Elliott) was finally ready to tell Grayson (Jackson Hurst) that she was actually his late fiancĂ©e Deb in his brilliant lawyer colleague’s body. The woman he compares every other woman to, including the one he’d just broken up with, Vanessa, because he wasn’t ready to move on, was still there. But before she could, Grayson asked Jane to be his best man at his wedding to Vanessa — they’d gotten back together because an earlier chat with Jane made him realize he needed to move forward. Jane left the restaurant upset, Grayson chased after her — AND GOT HIT BY A CAR. Jane knelt by his side and begged her guardian angel Fred (Ben Feldman), who’d warned her that telling Grayson the truth that only Fred and Deb’s best friend Stacy (April Bowlby) knew may not end well, to do something. Grayson looked up at Jane and said… “Deb?” End scene. And SCREAM!

That’s a cliffhanger that needs resolved. Granted, Grayson will probably come to in the season 3 premiere not remembering that he saw Deb in Jane. (It’s called giving us a hint of what we want, then hitting the reset button. I agree with commenters: Grayson needs to acknowledge his love for Jane first, which is what she’d expected him to do when they met that night.) But I’ll be there watching. You?

    Most entertaining show on TV, bar none. Brooke Elliott is brilliant. Negative reviews are more fun to read, but I have nothing bad to say about this amazing show.

      I’ll make a negative comment. Brooke Elliot didn’t sing enough this season! I don’t want Glee or some throwback to Aly McBeal kareoke(and I’m NOT a fan of American Idol), but wow, what a beautiful voice. There has to be a legit way -storywise- to get that girl singing!!!

    I wish the season was longer! I LOVE this show and it is over way too fast. Brooke Elliot is amazing and this is one of the few casts where I like everyone. Kim even grew on me this summer.

    • ABG

      Yea, Kim kind of grew on me too…

    • Mellissa

      Kim’s character grew on me. Her new hairstyle did not.

    • Randi

      I agree with you 100%! Season seemed to begin and end in a blink!

    • Wendy

      My thoughts exactly GS!

    • Angie

      I agree… not only did the season go by too fast, I started out hating Kim. However, she has grown on me.

  • Lorie

    Great news!

  • Julia

    Love, love, love this show!

  • mscisluv

    Wonderful – this show is such a treat!

  • KarlHall

    13 episodes per season is too little. Someone smack a little sense into Showtime. (but hey, at least they didn’t CANCEL it.)

  • angela

    Great news! Love this show and can’t wait to see what happens next season! :)


    this is a sunday fave after true blood. brook elliott is so great.

  • bamalam

    I don’t want Grayson to find out that Jane is Deb…I want Grayson to fall in love with Jane. Leave the Deb aspect out of it, or the entire “lesson” of the show is ruined.

    • doctorevil

      amen sister. or brother. isn’t that the whole point of the show??

  • Lorraine

    This SHOW is AMAZING!They show freaking friends re-runs all the time on prmtime, what they NEED to DO is show DROP DEAD DIVA! I look forward to another season :) However, i wish the Season was much longer… This Sho certaianly deserves a longer series!

  • joe

    I like this show but she was supposedly telling her guy that she was actually deb for two seasons now and I feel like that’s the only thing they have for real suspense. And something always comes up at the moment. It’s getting old.

  • Pam

    Love love love! And yay for the renewal! Agree it’s time for Jane to move on, but that’s a minor issue with me.

  • doctorevil

    why can’t htey move the show from summer to fall? i would watch it!

  • Lola

    I love this show! It is really a great show. It comes it at a horrible time and I have to DVR it once True Blood starts. I am so glad they renewed it.

  • cass

    I screamed too at the ending!! However, I keep wishing that Grayson would fall in love with Jane, not Deb-as-Jane. All women, regardless of size, deserve their own Prince Charming and happily-ever-after. Brooke Elliot is amazing.

    • sarah

      i really agree i hope grayson wakes up in the new series and realises he loves jane. oooooooh cant wait for the next series

      • Janet

        Great clean show, Love it! Believe Grayson should know Jane is Deb. Maybe he’ll fall in love with Jane 1st, then find out she is Deb.
