This shouldn't come as much of a surprise, given that Showtime's most quietly-continuing 'Episodes' had already been granted an additional season, but good news all the same: Emmy Rossum-William H. Macy family drama 'Shameless' will officially return for a fifth season in 2015, as the Don Cheadle- and Kristen Bell-starring 'House of Lies' will return for its fourth.
House of Lies
At long last, we can finally put aside all the holiday chicanery and get back to what we do best: watching TV! The winter 2014 season will officially have gotten underway with next Sunday's Showtime premieres of 'Shameless' season 4, 'House of Lies' season 3 and 'Episodes' season 3, but you can watch the uncut premieres of all three right now!
HBO may have decide to circumvent the 2013 Super Bowl's massive viewer drain by airing its Sunday programs on Saturday, but Showtime's Sunday lineup of 'House of Lies,' 'Shameless' and 'Californication' opted to take the week off. Next week's 'House of Lies' episode "Damonschildren.org" will certainly make up for that however, featuring a guest turn from who else, but the Jimmy Kimmel-conquering Matt Damon! Showtime has released a new clip from the Damon-centric half-hour, which might be the most deranged we've seen him yet. Take a look inside!
It's official, Showtime's "Sinful Sundays" are a big hit. Following increases in rating and acclaim, Showtime has opted to renew its Sunday triumvirate of 'Shameless,' 'House of Lies' and 'Californication' for additional seasons to begin airing in 2014. The move comes as something of a surprise for 'Californication' at least, thought to be on its last legs and debating the possibility of a spin-off featuring Maggie Grace's character "Faith." Find out what Showtime has to say about the renewals inside!
Mixed as the critical reception to Showtime's 'House of Lies' might have been, there's no denying the show's success after both debuting its second season last night, and netting lead actor Don Cheadle with a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a TV series, Comedy or Musical. Now, with the second season of the smooth-talking series underway, 'House of Lies' is about to get some serious star-power with Don Cheadle collaborator Matt Damon! Find out who Damon plays on 'House of Lies' season 2 inside!
Well, there's a surprise! Rather than end up dominated by 'The Big Bang Theory' or 'Modern Family,' the 2013 Golden Globes have gone an unexpected direction with the Best Actor in a TV Series, Comedy or Musical, awarding the prize to 'House of Lies' star Don Cheadle. Cheadle has been acclaimed for his performance as smooth-talking consultant Marty Kaan, but find out whom he bested for the award inside!
Those who spend their youths crafting an image as teen heartthrobs often take darker, more daring roles in their adult years, if only to shed that more wholesome image. Well, what better place to shed a teen image than a pay-cable sizzler like Showtime's 'House of Lies?' As we approach the premiere of the show's second season, former 'The O.C.' star Adam Brody is the latest to join the cast, and his new role has quite a bit of buzz around it.
For as much as 'House' fans bemoaned longtime series star Lisa Edelstein's exit from the series, and exclusion from the FOX drama's final season, we've been equally glad to see the actress popping up all across the tube lately, from 'The Good Wife' to 'Elementary.' The latest stop on Edelstein's rebound tour is a 'House' of a different sort, heading over to pay-cable for Showtime's 'House of Lies!' But who might the sexy ex-Cuddy play?
Don Cheadle and Larenz Tate will once again be on-screen brothers, but don't worry, they're not trying to put 'Crash' on TV again. Instead, Tate will join the second season of Showtimes' well-watched if critically shaky corporate dramedy 'House of Lies,' playing Marty (Cheadle)'s younger sibling. The series will return this January with its other decadent Showtime cohorts, but who else has joined the cast before the premiere?
The fall TV season is barely underway, so can it be that we're really already looking forward to 2013? If you're looking for fresh 'Shameless, ' 'House of Lies' and 'Californication,' absolutely! Showtime has made its 2013 lineup official, kicking off with new adventures for the Gallaghers, Galweather & Stearn, and even Hank Moody, but which Sundays will be getting positively sinful with the network's new line-up?
