The con is still on. Showtime renewed its half-hour series (a comedy by Emmys definition) House of Lies for a fifth season, the network announced Tuesday.

The fifth season of the series will consist of 10 episodes, down from the normal 12 episodes that made up each of the previous four seasons. Showtime expects Season 5 to air in 2016.
