Shameless, Californication, Ripper Street All Confirmed to Return To the Small Screen

TV renew season can be either the best or most disappointing points of the year. With the news, as reported by the LA Times, that Shameless, Californication, Ripper Street, House of Lies and Banshee are all set to return, fans will be pleased. 

Shameless is a British export rehashed for American television, which seems to have (for once) translated really well. That's on Showtime along with both Californication and House of Lies which implies that Showtime are pretty pleased with their ratings over the last couple of months. Cinemax's Banshee, from a producer of True Blood, is also set to return. 

Arguably most exciting of all, is the definite return of the BBC and BBC America collaboration, Ripper Street. Set in 1889, and starring Matthew Macfadyen (Frost/Nixon), Jerome Flynn (Game of Thrones) and newcomer Adam Rothenberg, the series follows a detective named Edmund with his team of Detective Sergeant and early-style forensic doctor from the American army, trying to solve mysteries (often murders) using comparatively primitive detective techniques while simultaneously exposing the growing technology of the era including film itself. It has had largely favourable reviews and its renewal, though a pleasure, is not a surprise. The second season, of another 8 episodes, will debut in 2014.

In other renewal news, the whole of CBS' daytime schedule was announced to be continuing.
