New episodes of SHAMELESS, HOUSE OF LIES and EPISODES will return to SHOWTIME on Sunday, January 12 beginning at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

The network will also air the world television premieres of the critically-acclaimed Oscar-nominated film Silver Linings Playbook and the conclusion to the blockbuster franchise The Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn - Part 2, both premiering on SHOWTIME in January. Directed by Oscar winner Bill Condon and based on the novel Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 is the fifth and final installment in the massively successful Twilight Saga franchise, and stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner. Breaking Dawn - Part 2 premieres on Saturday, January 11th at 8 p.m. only on SHOWTIME. Written and directed by Oscar and Golden Globe(R) nominee David O. Russell (American Hustle), Silver Linings Playbook features an all-star cast including Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro, Jacki Weaver, Chris Tucker and Jennifer Lawrence, in her Academy Award(R) -winning role. Silver Linings Playbook premieres on Saturday, January 18th at 9 p.m.

SHAMELESS stars Academy Award(R) nominee William H. Macy and Golden Globe nominee Emmy Rossum, along with Justin Chatwin, Ethan Cutkosky, Shanola Hampton, Steve Howey, Emma Kenney, Laura Slade Wiggins, Noel Fisher and Emma Greenwell. Season four will pick up a few weeks after season three left off - with the Gallaghers braving another brutal Chicago winter and waiting on the medical fate of their flawed, permanently pickled patriarch, Frank (Macy). With Fiona (Rossum) in a stable job and relationship, and Lip (Jeremy Allen White) enrolled in college, can the Gallaghers finally realize the middle class American dream? Based on the long-running hit UK series, SHAMELESS is executive produced by Emmy(R) Award-winning television and film producer John Wells, Andrew Stearn and Mark Mylod. Wells developed the series for American television. Paul Abbott serves as executive consultant. SHAMELESS is produced by Bonanza Productions, Inc. in association with John Wells Productions and Warner Bros. Television. Season four of SHAMELESS returns Sunday, January 12 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

HOUSE OF LIES is the edgy, provocative hit SHOWTIME comedy series starring Don Cheadle in his twice Emmy-nominated and Golden Globe-winning role as elite consultant Marty Kaan, a man with a single-minded pursuit: power. This quest is eternally complicated at work by his relationships with his "Pod" of co-workers: sexy, whip-smart co-conspirator Jeannie (Kristen Bell) and underlings Clyde (Ben Schwartz) and Doug (Josh Lawson). At home, he's forced to juggle unwanted advice from his psychoanalyst father Jeremiah (Emmy winner Glynn Turman), drama from his demented ex-wife Monica (Dawn Olivieri), all while being a loving father to his gender-fluid teenage son Roscoe (Donis Leonard Jr.). We start season 3 as the wreckage from Marty's decision to launch his own firm has spilled onto the Pod - the almighty quartet is disbanded. But while Marty is preoccupied with hustling up new clients, his former mentee Jeannie is channeling her inner Kaan and making big moves in his absence. With everything now turned upside-down, it's anyone's game and anyone's guess as to who will come out on top - at work and at play. Season three guest stars include Grammy(R) Award winner T.I. (American Gangster, Identity Thief), Mekhi Phifer (Lie to Me, ER), Eliza Coupe (Happy Endings, Scrubs) and Daniel Stern (Home Alone, The Wonder Years). Previous guest stars Griffin Dunne ("The Rainmaker"), Bess Armstrong ("Julianne") and Jenny Slate ("Sarah") will also return this season. Season 3 of HOUSE OF LIES premieres on Sunday, January 12 at 10 p.m.

EPISODES stars Matt LeBlanc in his Emmy-nominated and Golden Globe Award-winning role as a fictionalized version of himself. At the start of the third season, Sean (Stephen Mangan) and Beverly (Tamsin Greig), the English couple whose hit U.K. sitcom is remade for U.S. audiences and corrupted beyond recognition, are back together but they soon discover that it's not so easy to heal old wounds. Things get no easier for Matt this year as his career and ego continue to be pummeled. Mircea Monroe reprises her role as Morning Randolph, Matt's Pucks! co-star whose youthful appearance is a miracle of modern science. Season three's new guest stars include Chris Diamantopoulos (24) in a season-long arc; Roger Bart (Revenge) appears in four episodes as LeBlanc's agent; along with Tracy Spiridakos (Revolution) as a family member of Morning's. A SHOWTIME and BBC co-production, the series comes from visionary creators David Crane (Friends) and Jeffrey Klarik (Mad About You). Season three of EPISODES returns Sunday, January 12 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT.
