Scoop: Fox renews 'Lie to Me,' installs 'Shield' creator as new showrunner

Posted on


This is the God’s honest truth: Lie to Me is coming back for another season.

A Fox rep wouldn’t comment, but reliable sources confirm that the network has renewed the freshman drama for a 13-episode second season. And here’s where things get really interesting: Shawn Ryan, the genius producer-writer behind The Shield and The Unit, is taking over as showrunner. Don’t interpret that to mean The Unit is dead though. I’m told if the CBS procedural returns — and it very well may — Ryan will juggle both shows. 

Additionally, Fox has picked up two new shows: the comedy Sons of Tucson starring Reaper‘s Tyler Labine and the DC comic adaptation Human Target starring Mark Valley.

The net will announce its full schedule next Monday. Now excuse me while I go update my Fall TV Cheat Sheet!
