Both series receive 12-episode orders
Showtime has given new seasons to its drama “Shameless” and its comedy “House of Lies.”
Both series have received 12-episode orders, with the new seasons to premiere in 2015.
With the previous renewal of the Matt LeBlanc series “Episodes,” Showtime has now renewed its entire Sunday night lineup. All three shows currently air on Sunday nights starting at 9 p.m. on Showtime.
The current fourth season of “Shameless,” which stars William H. Macy and Emmy Rossum, has averaged 5.5 million total viewers across platforms, an eight percent increase over last season.
“House of Lies,” which stars Don Cheadle as elite consultant Marty Kaan, is averaging three million total viewers across platforms in its current third season, putting it on par with its previous season.
