Lifetime has cancelled “Drop Dead Diva” after four seasons, it was announced Tuesday.

The legal drama from Josh Berman (“The Mob Doctor”), which starred Brooke Elliott as a deceased model trapped in the body of a curvacious lawyer, will not be renewed for a fifth season, reportedly due to the high costs of producing the show.

“Diva’s” last episode aired in September, ironically, with the finale marking a series high with 2.76 million viewers.

During its run, “Drop Dead Diva” welcomed some high profile guest stars, including Kim Kardashian (as a jailbird!), Kathy Griffin and Paula Abdul.
