LOS ANGELES, Feb. 4 (UPI) -- HBO has ordered a fifth season of its U.S. polygamy drama series "Big Love," The Hollywood Reporter said.

The show, now in its fourth season, stars Bill Paxton as a Utah man with three wives played by Jeanne Tripplehorn, Chloe Sevigny and Ginnifer Goodwin. This season reportedly is focusing on Paxton's character running for office, whereas next season is expected to concentrate on his family life.

Series creator Mark V. Olsen told the entertainment industry trade newspaper Season 5's episodes will be "settling into the storytelling."

"We want to take the temperature of the marriages," added co-creator Will Scheffer.
