LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) – Things won’t be cooling down in Cleveland anytime soon.
TV Land has ordered a fifth season of its hit comedy “Hot in Cleveland,” starring Betty White, Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeve and Wendie Malick.
The 24-episode season will bring the total of episodes for the series – TV Land’s maiden foray into original scripted comedy – to 104 episodes.
The new season will begin filming this fall.
Earlier this year, CBS Television Distribution announced that it had sold “Hot in Cleveland” for syndication to 92 percent of the country for a September 2014 launch.
“This is an incredible milestone for the show and for TV Land,” network president Larry W. Jones said Wednesday. “To have our first scripted sitcom make it to the syndication level is a huge accomplishment. We have a brilliant creative team both in front of and behind the camera. We are so proud to be on this exciting ride with them.”
