Showtime Renews 'Shameless' and 'House of Lies'


The blue-collar dramedy starring William H. Macy will return for a fifth season, while the Don Cheadle-starring dark comedy will return for a fourth season.

Showtime has ordered more "Shameless" and "House of Lies". The premium cable channel has renewed both drama comedies for a fifth and fourth season respectively, consisting of 12 new episodes each.

The two shows join "Episodes", which has been earlier renewed for a fourth season. Production for the new seasons of all three series will kick off in Los Angeles later this year.

"Shameless" and "House of Lies" are strong ratings performers on Showtime, with the former continuing to grow in its fourth season. Its current fourth season is averaging 5.5 million weekly viewers across platforms, up eight percent versus its prior season.

"House of Lies", meanwhile, is averaging 3 million viewers a week, on par with its second season. It hit season high with its latest episode aired last week and outperformed all premium competitors in the time period.
