According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fox has all but officially announced the renewal of Lie to Me for a thirteen episode run next season. The show has been on a very long hiatus since last fall, and returns with new episodes June 7th. The series, which just lost its showrunner, Shawn Ryan, has been in a battle with Fox’s other freshman series, Human Target, for renewal. Word has it that Fox is actually batting around the idea of bringing the latter series back, as well, for a thirteen episode season. Fox will present its 2010-2011 schedule this upcoming Monday, May 17th, at its upfront in New York City.
