John Ratzenberger Returns to “Drop Dead Diva”

The Lifetime show is back for a 5th season starting in the summer of 2013.

About Drop Dead Diva:

Lifetime’s fan favorite and critically-acclaimed series “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 set to debut on Sunday, June 23, at 9pm ET/PT. Immediately following “Drop Dead Diva’s” return, Lifetime will premiere its new drama “Devious Maids.”

Produced by Sony Pictures Television, the one-hour, comedic drama stars Brooke Elliott (“Wicked,” “Taboo”), Margaret Cho (“Dancing with the Stars,” “Cho Dependent”), Jackson Hurst (“Living Proof”), Kate Levering (“Cashmere Mafia”), April Bowlby (“Two and a Half Men”) and Lex Medlin (“Southland”).

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. Other guest stars for season five will be announced in the coming weeks.
