Initially I wasn’t a fan but anytime there’s a plus size lead character, I’m willing to give it a shot. After watching the first episode, I tuned in every Sunday to see what trouble Jane Bingum would get into.
Unfortunately, we won’t get to see Jane work her magic in the courtroom any longer because as of January 15, 2013, Lifetime canceled Drop Dead Diva after four seasons.
This isn’t the first or the last show we’ll miss. Here are five shows that I would love to see come back on air.
After just 1 season (10 episodes) ABC Family canceled the short lived series starring Nikki Blonsky, Hayley Hasselhoff and Raven Goodwin.
Oh how much I love Ugly Betty starring America Ferrera. On April 14, 2010, Betty said good bye to us after 4 great seasons. There were talks of an Ugly Betty movie, but nothing has surfaced yet.
ONE LIFE TO LIVE
After 44 wonderful seasons, the citizens of Llanview, PA closed their doors to us. The soap opera made history as the first daytime drama to feature different ethnicities. OLTL is currently in the process of being revived as a 30 minute web series.
The legal drama starring Kathy Bates only lasted 2 seasons but it certainly made a lasting impression. Actually, I think I’ll go watch a few episodes right after I finish this article.
THE BIG SEXY
Big Sexy was a three-part reality series on TLC. The show followed five New York City based plus size women in the fashion industry. Three episodes just wasn’t enough.
