The rock star of the 80s will play (what else?) a rock star who is battling legal issues. According to radiotvtalk, Rick Springfield had to take two trips to film his scenes for the "Drop Dead Diva" season 6 after filming closed down last month due to the snow storm.

There's no word yet on when "Drop Dead Diva" season 6 will air the Rick Springfield episode although the blog presumed it will be "sometime in late April or May."

Meanwhle, season 6 will be the last for the TV series, according to Hollywood Reporter.

A two-hour premier on March 23 at 9 p.m. will kick off the final season and aside from Rick Springfield, Virginia Williams, S. Epatha Merkerson, Corbin Bleau, John Ratzenberger, Colin Egglesfield and Jay DeMarcus will also guest star in the show.

The show was cancelled during the fifth season, Hollywood Reporter said, over financial constraints. Three months later, the show was reincarnated when Lifetime and Sony Pictures Television crafted a financial model that was cost-effective.

Even if "Drop Dead Diva" picked up several awards such as the GLAAD awards and the Gracie Award for the star Brooke Elliot, ratings for "Drop Dead Diva" declined steadily from 2.84 million average in season 1 to just 1.99 viewers during the fifth season.

The show is about a model who was killed in a car crash and reincarnated as a lawyer. It stars Brooke Elliot, Margaret Cho and April Bowlby. The series chronicles her adventures and misadventures in the courtroom as well as her personal life.

Lifetime's decision to make "Drop Dead Diva" season 6 its last came in the wake of the "Army Wives" cancellation after seven seasons.
