‘House of Lies’ Cancelled — No Season 6
A fifth season of the dark comedy “House of Lies” kicked off on April 10, 2016, and its debut, once again, has been praised by the audience. Meanwhile, television ratings are gradually decreasing. Therefore, an intriguing question hangs in the air, whether Showtime intends to renew their award-winning comedy for a next season or not?
The comedy-drama series describes the world of high stakes, where honor and conscience play a secondary role. Meanwhile, an egocentric, but charming, fast-talking management consultant Marty Kaan is in his element among the sophisticated schemes and manipulations, assisted by his team consisting of the first-class liars and sycophants. In the fifth season of “House of Lies” Marty and the pod travel to Cuba in order to reach new horizons.

About Season 6
UPDATE (May 17, 2016): Bad news came recently. According to the official announcement, Showtime cancels their comedy series “House Of Lies” after its fifth season. Unfortunately, television ratings of the comedy series gradually dropped from season to season. The premiere of Season 5 drew 0.399 million viewers, whereas the sixth episode of the fifth season gained mere 0.258 million viewers. The dramatic decreasing of the viewership has finally caused the series’ conclusion, as we predicted previously.
“House of Lies” Season 5 debuted this April, and its debut drew 0.399 million viewers. Showtime has yet to announce their plans concerning the renewal or cancellation of their comedy-drama series. Despite the decreasing viewership, we, nevertheless, tend to believe that “House of Lies” Season 6 would take place, taking into account the impressive reception by the viewers. However, other indicators illustrate a forthcoming conclusion of the series. Most likely, “House of Lies” Season 6 (if it will take place) will be the final season of the series. At the moment, it’s hard to predict the further destiny of the TV show, and thus we would prefer to wait for the official announcement.
