Both new seasons are expected to air in 2015, with production beginning later this year. Showtime has also recently renewed Matt LeBlanc’s Episodes for a fourth season, thus renewing its entire Sunday night lineup.
Starring William H. Macy, Shameless is currently on track to air its highest-rated season yet. The drama averages 5.5 million viewers, weekly, across platforms. House of Lies, starring Don Cheadle and Kristen Bell is averaging 3 million viewers, weekly, and pulled its own highest-rated telecast of the season last week.
These renewals bring House of Lies to its fourth season and Shameless to its fifth.
