Season 5 Premieres June 23!
You asked for it, you got it! "Drop Dead Diva" will make it's official Season 5 debut on Sunday, June 23, at 9/8c. The series' fifth season opener, entitled "Back from the Dead," picks up from last season’s cliff hanger finale with Jane frantically searching for her missing fiancé Owen, who disappeared after witnessing her kiss Grayson moments before their wedding. (Watch that all go down here.)
While both Jane and Owen nurse their broken hearts, Jane’s friends and co-workers also are confronted with their own life dilemmas. Kim 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 joins "Drop Dead Diva" as Jane’s new heavenly guide Paul, stepping in for Luke 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.
John Ratzenberger will return 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. Other guest stars for season five will be announced in the coming weeks.
And there you have it! Give me your reactions, people! What do you think will happen in Season 5? Will Jane get together with Grayson? Or will she try to work things out with Owen?
