*After 5 seasons, Showtime is pulling the plug on “House of Lies.”
The half-hour series, which stars Don Cheadle, Kristen Bell, Ben Schwartz, Josh Lawson, Donis Leonard Jr., and Glynn Turman, will wrap up its fifth and final season on Sunday, June 12 at 9 p.m.
The series finale, “No Es Fácil,” was shot entirely on location in Cuba, series creator and executive producer Matthew Carnahan told Variety. It makes history as the first American scripted series shot in Cuba since the restoration of diplomatic relations between the countries.
“’House of Lies’ is a comedy that has frequently been ahead of the curve,” said David Nevins, President and CEO, Showtime Networks. “Over the course of its five seasons, it has tackled such hot-button topics as gender identity, wealth inequality, white privilege, police brutality, interracial relationships, and code-switching with honesty and a biting sense of humor. Matthew Carnahan and Don Cheadle have been dream partners and impeccable leaders. The core cast of Don, Kristen, Ben and Josh are one of the best comedy teams on television. They have brought the series to an incredibly satisfying conclusion with this historic final episode shot in Cuba.”
