Season 5

Drop Dead Diva, which follows a shallow wannabe model that suddenly dies in an accident only to find her soul resurfacing in the body of a brilliant, plus-sized recently deceased attorney, is back by popular demand for a fifth season with 13 all-new episodes.

Produced by Sony Pictures Television, the one-hour, comedic drama stars Brooke Elliott, Margaret Cho, Jackson Hurst, Kate Levering, April Bowlby and Lex Medlin.

The series' fifth season opener, entitled Back from the Dead, picks up from last season's cliff hanger finale with Jane (Elliott) frantically searching for her missing fiancé Owen (Medlin), who disappeared after witnessing her kiss Grayson (Hurst) moments before their wedding.

While both Jane and Owen nurse their broken hearts, Jane's friends and co-workers also are confronted with their own life dilemmas.

Kim (Levering) goes public with her pregnancy at the firm as Grayson continues to struggle with his feelings for Jane. Meanwhile, Stacy (Bowlby) is left contemplating the future of her business, The Pakery.

Newcomer Justin Deeley (90210) joins Drop Dead Diva as Jane's new heavenly guide Paul, stepping in for Luke (Carter McIntyre) when he is called back to Heaven just after telling her that Old Jane has returned to Earth.

Now that Jane and Old Jane are both on Earth, the two kindred spirits will finally meet face-to-face, creating one of the most highly anticipated Drop Dead Diva moments ever.

Emmy-nominated actor John Ratzenberger returns to Drop Dead Diva this season to reprise his role as Kim's father, while Jamie Ray Newman is back as Grayson's ex-fiancée Vanessa, further complicating his heart.

Josh Berman is creator and executive producer. Craig Zadan and Neil Meron of Storyline Entertainment are executive producers. Alex Taub also returns as executive producer.
