Which 5 Television Shows Have Been Renewed for Additional Seasons?

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | January 29, 2013 | Comments ()


Shameless -- In the midst of a very strong third season, Shameless will be back for a fourth, hoping to maintain the critical and ratings momentum it has been building.

House of Lies -- I had hoped the shaky first season was not a sign of what was to come, but three episodes into the second season, "House of Lies" is still a show with a much better cast than the writing deserves. It's become something akin to "Entourage" with consultants.

Californiacation -- After six seasons, apparently Showtime has not tired of David Duchovny's sex dramedy, although Showtime has a tendency to keep its programs around long past their expiration date ("Dexter," "Weeds"). I can't speak to that on "Californiacation," however, because I stopped watching after the first season.

Ripper Street -- A much better show than Fox's "The Following," BBC America's "Ripper Street" gets picked up for a second season after only two (strong) episodes. (See Sarah's review).

Banshee -- Cinemax picked up this good but flawed drama. I was high on the pilot, but subsequent episodes haven't been as strong and my interest is waning.
