‘Shameless’ to Return on Showtime for Season Eight

Twelve New Episodes on Tap for 2017

Showtime has greenlit dramedy “Shameless” for an eighth season, with 12 new episodes set to debut in fall 2017. Debuting on Jan. 9, 2011, the series depicts the dysfunctional damily of Frank Gallagher (William H. Macy), a single father of six children. While he spends his days drunk or in search of misadventures, his kids learn to take care of themselves.

As season seven of “Shameless” came to an end on Monday, the Gallaghers dealt with the loss of one of their own, and grappled with mixed feelings about their grief. Fiona (Emmy Rossum) had to once again care for Frank (Macy) in his time of need, while Frank had a new scheme in mind.
