In case you have never heard of this show before, allow us to give you a bit of an insight that will help you determine whether its worth your time.
Back when Lifetime was at the height of its scripted content game, Drop Dead Diva was one of its biggest shows. It started airing back in 2009 and ran for six seasons concluding in 2014. The series has been on Netflix since 2011.
The series is about a luxurious model who passes away but returns as an overweight lawyer who has to uncover the true meaning of inner beauty. It’s a little camp and is perfect for a girls night in.
When will Drop Dead Diva leave Netflix?
All six seasons of Drop Dead Diva are currently scheduled to leave Netflix on March 3rd, 2019.
We’ll get an official confirmation of removal towards the end of February 2019.
Why is Drop Dead Diva leaving Netflix?
Netflix has to renew its shows on a regular basis when they’re not being carried under the Netflix Original banner.
In the case of Drop Dead Diva, the likelihood is that too few people were watching to make it worth the money it’d cost to renew the show. After all, the series has now been complete on Netflix for about four years.
Where will the series end up next? We’re not sure. Older scripted Lifetime shows are particularly hard to find on streaming services. If we had to hazard a guess, we’d say Hulu but even that we’d say it’s unlikely.
