Network: Showtime

No. of Seasons: 11

Showtime renewed Shameless for an eleventh and final season in January 2020. The show’s last batch of episodes was supposed to premiere in mid-2020, but was pushed to December of that year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It aired its series finale this April.

In an interview ahead of the show’s season 11 premiere, executive producer John Wells implied that the decision to end Shameless with season 11 was made by the show’s creative team and not by the network. “We’re just following people’s lives. We just have to walk away from them at some point,” Wells said at the time.

An adaptation of Paul Abbott’s British series of the same name, Shameless depicts the poor, dysfunctional family of Frank Gallagher. A neglectful single father of six, Frank spends his days drunk or in search of misadventures, leaving his children to take care of themselves. The ensemble cast was led William H. Macy and Emmy Rossum.
