Showtime renews 'Shameless,' 'House of Lies,' 'Californication'

Showtime renews "Shameless," "House of Lies" and "Californication"

Showtime has picked up "Shameless, 'House of Lies" and "Californication" for new seasons, the network announced Wednesday.

"Californication" will return for a sixth season, "Shameless" for a third and "House of Lies" for a second. Production on the shows will begin later this year in Los Angeles.

"Shameless," an hourlong dramedy from John Wells, has watched its ratings grow in its sophomore season. It recently exceeded the viewership of the series debut of HBO's "Luck" -- with 1.4 million viewers to "Luck's" 1.1 million viewers. "House of Lies," which airs after "Shameless" on Sundays and stars Don Cheadle, had a strong premiere by the cable network's standards, with more than 1 million viewers, and has built on that as the season has progressed.

Veteran "Californication" is averaging 3 million viewers across all platforms (On Demand, replays and DVR), according to the network.
