House of Lies


The business of lies is boomin' and Showtime is going with it!

The network has just renewed House of Lies for another season, it was announced on Tuesday.

The critically-acclaimed comedy, which stars Don Cheadle and Kristen Bell will return for a fifth season, set to air in 2016. Season five will be 10 episodes long.

"When you have a gifted acting ensemble led by Don Cheadle and smart, acerbic writing led by showrunner Matthew Carnahan you expect something special, and House of Lies delivers for us each season," Showtime boss Gary Levine said in a statement.

House of Lies stars Cheadle as Marty Kaan, the role that has earned him three Emmy nominations and a Golden Globe win. Fun fact: he has been honored with both Emmy and Golden Globe Award nominations for the past three years...will his streak continue this year?

Veronica Mars and Frozen alum Bell plays his quick, smart partner, along with Parks and Rec alum Ben Schwartz, Josh Lawson, Donis Leonard Jr. and Glynn Turman.

Season four saw Marty spend some time in a white collar prison, resulting in disaster for the firm. Jeannie (Bell) found herself in charge of Clyde (Schwartz), Doug (Lawson), and the rest of Kaan & Associates, all while dealing with her pregnancy. Marty returned more focused on the firm than ever. In the season finale, Marty fought to save Kaan & Associates while Jeannie was giving birth to their baby.
