Showtime renews House of Lies for fifth season

(Showtime)

House of Lies will return for a fifth season, Showtime announced Tuesday.

“When you have a gifted acting ensemble led by Don Cheadle and smart, acerbic writing led by showrunner Matthew Carnahan you expect something special,” Showtime Executive Vice President of Original Programming Gary Levine said in a statement.

The show—which first aired in 2012 and stars Kristen Bell and Ben Schwartz alongside Cheadle—will air 10 episodes as part of the fifth season next year.

The last season tied up some of the show’s biggest questions, as Marty (Cheadle) attempted to save the firm from failure and Denna Altshuler (Mary McCormack), as Jeannie (Bell) gave birth to their baby.

Based on Martin Kihn’s book by the same name, House of Lies is created and executive produced by Matthew Carnahan.
