Five new episodes are set to air at 9 p.m. on Sundays, starting with the Oct. 6 fall premiere. Among the guest stars rounding out season five are Illeana Douglas (Six Feet Under), Peri Gilpin (Frasier), Richard Kind (Spin City), Jaleel White (Family Matters), Doug Savant (Desperate Housewives) and Rebecca Mader (Lost).
The new episodes also will feature returning guests Sharon Lawrence, who plays Deb’s mom; Faith Prince, who plays Jane’s (Brooke Elliott) mom; Nancy Grace as herself; Natalie Hall as Britney, whose body old Jane has taken over; and Annie Ilonzeh as Nicole, Grayson’s (Jackson Hurst) love interest. Other returning guest stars include Jason Kennedy and Wallace “Wally” Langham.
Sunday’s episode finds Jane defending a former socialite, but her tactics put the firm in financial jeopardy. Meanwhile, Owen (Lex Medlin) and Stacy (April Bowlby) explore impending parenthood after Owen agrees to be her sperm donor.
As the season continues, Grayson’s relationship with Nicole develops further as Paul (Justin Deeley) makes a play to convince Jane to move on and begin dating again. Margaret Cho and Kate Levering also star in the series, which this season will feature the most “shocking” finale in Drop Dead Diva history, according to Lifetime.
Drop Dead Diva, from Sony Pictures Television, returns at 9 p.m. Sunday, followed by the debut of new drama Witches of East End at 10 p.m. Select members of the cast and crew — including creator/executive producer Josh Berman, Hurst, Bowlby, Levering, Deeley and Medlin — will take part in a live Facebook chat at 8:30 p.m. ET on Oct. 13.
