No. of Season: 11
Showtime renewed Shameless for an eleventh and final season in January. The last batch of episodes was supposed to premiere in mid-2020, but it was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The premiere date is now set on December 6th. When announcing the final season, Showtime executive Gary Levine implied that the decision to end Shameless with season 11 was made by the show’s creative team. “The characters of Shameless have brought Showtime viewers more laughs and tears and pure enjoyment than any program in our history,” said Levine. “While we are sad to bid the Gallaghers farewell, we couldn’t be more confident in the ability of showrunner John Wells, his writing team and this great cast to bring our series to its appropriately ‘SHAMELESS’ conclusion.”
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 is led William H. Macy and Emmy Rossum.
