After five successful seasons, it looks like Melanie (Valerie Bertinelli), Victoria (Wendie Malick), and Joy (Jane Leeves) are about to spend another year living it up in Cleveland with Elka (Betty White).
In a highly unsurprising move, TV Land has renewed its first (and still highest rated) original comedy series 'Hot in Cleveland' for a 24-episode sixth season. This matches the episode order of seasons three through five, and illustrates the network's continued confidence in its comedic crown jewel.

For those unfamiliar, the initial premise of 'Hot in Cleveland' was three L.A. women getting stuck in Cleveland for a few days due to an airline mishap. They proceeded to rent a house, without realizing that the elderly caretaker was part of the deal. Free from L.A.'s pressures to look unnaturally thin and gorgeous to attract men, the ladies decide to stay in Cleveland and reinvent themselves.
Things have obviously changed over the course of 'Cleveland's five seasons, with long-lost sons, long-lost loves, ex-boyfriends, ex-husbands, meddling children, and various flames of the week coming and going out of the ladies' lives. The show's mission statement has never really changed though. It's an old-school, multi-camera, one-liner filled sitcom taped in front of a live audience. If you don't like that style, 'Hot in Cleveland' is probably not for you.
