Even if Fox picks up "Lie to Me" for next season, showrunner Shawn Ryan won’t be returning, the Hollywood Reporter’s The Live Feed reports.
"His plate full with other projects, Ryan has told Fox he no longer wants to run the crime drama, which has struggled in the ratings this season. Ryan is already committed to his upcoming FX private eye drama ‘Terriers,’ while his Fox police drama pilot ‘Ride Along’ is looking strong for a fall pickup," according to the article.
"Lie to Me" is waiting for Fox to make a decision about its fate, which may not happen before the network’s upfront presentation alter this month. The show has 12 episodes still to air, and returns June 7 paired with Fox’s new show "The Good Guys."
