Showtime announced Tuesday that they have renewed “House of Lies” for a fifth season.

The series follows Don Cheadle as cutthroat management consultant Marty Kaan, who will stop at nothing to secure a business deal.

In its fourth season, Marty’s brief stint in white collar prison left his firm in shambles and a pregnant Jeannie (Kirsten Bell) in charge of Clyde (Ben Schwartz), Doug (Josh Lawson), and a tainted Kaan & Associates. Client flight decimated the bottom line, but Marty returned on the scene with a singular focus: winning, at any and all cost.

Cheadle has been nominated for an Emmy and Golden Globe Award for three consecutive years for his role on the show, winning the Globe in 2012.

Based on the book “House of Lies: How Management Consultants Steal Your Watch and Tell You the Time” by Martin Kihn, the show is created and executive produced by Matthew Carnahan. Jessika Borsiczky, Don Cheadle and David Walpert served as executive producers for the series’ fourth season.
