Despite tough odds, FOX has decided to renew Lie to Me for a third season of 13 episodes.
In Lie to Me, Tim Roth stars as Dr. Cal Lightman, a specialist trained to ferret out those who aren’t telling the truth. He and his team of experts help law officials solve their most difficult cases. The cast also includes Kelli Williams, Brendan Hines, Mekhi Phifer, and Monica Raymund.
Debuting as a mid-season replacement in January 2009, Lie to Me started off with a 4.9 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 12.37 million viewers. Ratings soon fell quite a bit but the network still renewed the show for a second season.
