E! renews Simple Life for a fifth season

The Simple Life’s new network, E!, has just renewed the show for a fifth season, although it’ll only be the second season to air on the cable channel. (FOX dumped it last fall.)

The Simple Life 5 “will debut sometime in 2007, a person familiar with the production” told Variety. No word yet what format the show will take.

Variety says this “is a major victory for producers Bunim-Murray Prods. and 20th Century Fox TV.” Of course, it’s a loss for the rest of us, who stopped being amused by Paris and Nicole’s fake antics about four seasons ago.
