It's over: House of Lies will not return for a sixth season.

Showtime broke the news today that the Don Cheadle, Kristen Bell and Ben Schwartz-starring legal comedy will end with its season five finale on Sunday, June 13 - just as Bell begins work on new NBC sitcom The Good Place.

That episode will see the team from Kaan & Associates travel to Cuba for a very special case.

Showtime president David Nevins announced: "House of Lies is a comedy that has frequently been ahead of the curve. 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.

"[House of Lies creator] 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."

House of Lies premiered on Showtime in 2012, and won its leading man Don Cheadle a Golden Globe Award.
