Mark your calendars, set your DVRs, send out premiere party invites to all your friends... just do something fabulous to celebrate, Divas Season 4 officially starts on June 3 at 9/8c! Want to know what to expect from what promises to be the best season yet? Only here you can find the inside scoop...
Season four begins with Jane and Owen enjoying a Roman Holiday in Italy while back at home, the firm is going all sorts of cray under Kim’s leadership. Teri is sent to bring Jane home to take on murder case and Grayson comes to terms with his new feelings for Jane. (Um, do we need to rehash the kiss between Grayson and Stacy on the finale?!) And speaking of the kiss that changed everything, Fred tries to moves on with a new girlfriend, leading Stacy to seek out a relationship guru for love advice, played by the fab Kim Kardashian. (And it's not just because her and I share the same first name...) Watch a preview of Season 4 here.
Oh, and as if I even have to remind you besides Kim K., Season 4 is bringing it with the most amazing guest stars including: Serena Williams, John Ratzenberger (You can thank me later for getting the "Cheers" theme song stuck in your heads), Patty Duke, Megyn Price, Jake T. Austin and Emily Rutherford. Valerie Harper and Brandy will also reprise their roles this season.

Brandy is BACK for Season 4! The singer and actress will reprise her role as Elisa Shayne, Parker's blast-from-the-past ex who came back into his life at the end of Season 3. Elisa originally came to the firm in Episode 11 for Parker's legal help, but the two reunited in other ways when Parker discovered their child and rediscovered his feelings for his ex. When we last left our Divas, Parker left the firm (and Kim) behind to go after Elisa and their son in Chicago.
On the edge of your seat yet with the mere memory?!
That brings us to our next piece of guest star scoop: tennis star Serena Williams will join the cast as Elisa's lawyer. As an ex AND an ex-employee of Harrison Parker, you might be wondering why Elisa would have to go outside the firm for legal help. Well, Divas, Serena will represents Elisa when she and Parker go to court over custody of their son. Yikes!
According to EW the show's creator and executive producer Josh Berman approached Serena Williams to come on "Drop Dead Diva" Season 4 when he found out she was a fan. The writers then wrote the part specifically for her. Welcome, Serena and the warmest welcome back, Brandy!!
Are you excited to see Brandy return for "Drop Dead Diva" Season 4? Do she and Parker still have a chance?! Sound off below!
She swung a mighty gavel as Judge Leslie Singer on "Drop Dead Diva Season 3 and Valerie Harper will reprise her role as the supreme Her Honor in Season 4! View pics from the "Rhoda" star's first appearance on the show here.
With each little piece of guest star news we get to nibble on, we also find out a little more about Season 4, which is currently filming down in Georgia. Besides Valerie's return the three beautiful blondes in the photo above will also be appearing on Season 4!
In Episode 3, Emily Rutherfurd who played "New Christine" on "The New Adventures of Old Christine" will join the cast as Judge Owen's sister, Olivia French! In a twist that's sure to be juicy, Olivia knows the old Jane knew and is not a big fan (old or new).
Star of "The Patty Duke Show" and countless other television programs and films over the years, Patty Duke, plays Rita O'Reily, a floor-greeter who is fired after stopping a shoplifter. The closer Jane gets to Rita, the more she wonders if the two of them have something unique in common.
Megyn Price, who you've probably seen on TV shows like "Rules of Engagement" and "Grounded for Life," appears on the Season 4 Premiere as a former law school classmate of Jane's... who comes to her after being accused of murder.
Emily Rutherfurd is playing Owen's sis, what other character out there in Diva-land would you like to see on the small screen for Season 4?

You might recognize this cutie from his starring role as one of the bewitching kids on the Disney Channel show "Wizards of Waverly Place," where he's been making magic for the past six years. He's also been the voice of Diego on the uber popular kids cartoon "Go, Diego, Go!" Now, Jake T. Austin is guest-starring on Season 4 of "Drop Dead Diva" and from the photo he Tweeted from set to the left, it looks like he just might be shedding all that is tween-and-clean after a little run-in with the law?! We can't wait to know more about Jake's role on the show!

Yummy "Undercovers" star Carter MacIntyre is joining the cast as Jane's new, confident, super-sexy guardian angel with a boundless bank account. What that means for our beloved Fred... well, you'll just have to tune in to Season 4 to find out.
In Season 3, the hilarious Kathy Griffin played Kim Kaswell's kooky, kinda incredibly high maintenance sister and now "Cheers" actor John Ratzenberger will continue to fill out the Kaswell family tree. The star guests as Kim's estranged father who reconnects with his daughter after he loses his job and finds himself in some legal trouble.

We have our first "Drop Dead Diva" casting announcement for Season 4 and this guest star news is k-razy exciting! When "Diva" returns this Summer on Lifetime, none other than the gorgeous Kim Kardashian will join the cast for a multiple-episode arc (!!) starting with the season premiere. The Diva extraoidanaire Tweeted the announcement just moments ago, telling all the Twittersphere: "So excited to announce that I'll be guest starring on @DropDeadDiva Season 4 this summer!!" Hey, Kim? Yeah. Us too!!
So let's talk deets: on the Season 3 Finale, Jane caught Grayson and Stacy's misguided kiss. Yikes. Then, at the airport when Fred was all, "I'm going to propose to Stacy," Jane spilled the beans, crushing our angel's dreams of wedded bliss with his blonde boo. When Season 4 begins, we'll meet Kim Kardashian's character Nikki Fred’s new love interest (omg omg omg omg omg omg omg) who partners with Stacy in a new business venture (insert more omgs here).
"Drop Dead Diva" creator and executive producer Josh Berman reveals a little more about Kim and her character: "I'm ecstatic to welcome Kim to the Diva family. In discussing the role of Nikki with her, I'm blown away by her smarts, sense of humor, and passion. This series is all about reinvention and I'm so excited to see Kim 'reinvented' in the world of 'Drop Dead Diva.'"
Fellow "Diva" newbie Lex Medlin (aka Judge Owen) Tweeted his excitement and plans for reinvention too: "Holy Crap! Kim Kardashian is joining us on DDD for a few episodes. I better lose some weight." Oh, Lex, we love you just the way you are and are sure Kim will too ;) I'm not so sure her character on "Drop Dead Diva" Teri will be as welcoming, but star Margaret Cho Tweeted her support to Kim K, saying: "@kimkardashian super excited to have you on @dropdeaddiva welcome!"
I can't wait to fill all of the Divas in on what's coming up on the show! Believe it or not, this is only the beginning with the writers writing and the Season 4 to start filming in February. Stay tuned here for pics, videos, gossip and more from the set! And don't miss "Drop Dead Diva" on Facebook and Twitter.

Ominous emails are never a good thing "We have to talk..." "I have bad news..." "Do you like scary movies?" etc unless they're from "Drop Dead Diva" creator Josh Berman and include the very first picture ever from Season 4!!! Well, kinda.
As our ever-patient lil' Divas know, the writers of THEVERYBESTSHOWONTELEVISION are busy at work, doing what they do best: writing Season 4, which is set to premiere this summer on Lifetime. Josh Berman and the crew has promised to keep us sated as best they can with sneak peeks from the writers' room and, eventually, the set! Our first photo is the delicious-yet-suspcicious-looking one to the left. Along with the pic, Josh emailed us: "This photo is a big clue to something that's going to happen in Season 4." That's it!
WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN? Well, that's for you all to guess. We most likely won't have a Season 4 air date for a little while, but for more sneak peeks from next season (and the date as soon as I can reveal it!) your top Diva news sources are as follows:

Around 600 of you left comments with your reactions to the final episode; while some of you celebrated the final seconds and the man who met her on the plane, others admitted they were disappointed either in said man or having to wait months for Season 4! Take a look at your thoughts and one-word feelings in the Wordle word cloud below:
Which word(s) do you agree with? How would you describe the Season 3 Finale of "Drop Dead Diva" in one word, of course.
