Shameless is a fiercely engaging and fearlessly twisted series. It is one of those shows that you can’t get enough of. It follows Frank played by William H. Macy, a single dad to six kids who would be better off without him. Emmy Rossum stars as Frank’s eldest daughter Fiona and she is the only one trying to keep the family together. The show has received wide critical acclaim over the course of its eight seasons and has a very large fanbase. It had the biggest season in terms of viewership last year and this made the renewal a sure thing. It has been created by Paul Abbott. It premiered on Showtime on January 9, 2011.
Shameless Cast: Who is in it?
William H. Macy will reprise his role as Frank Gallagher. It seems likely that other cast members coming back could be Jeremy Allen White as Philip “Lip” Gallagher, Ethan Cutkosky as Carl Gallagher, Shanola Hampton as Veronica Fisher, Steve Howey as Kevin Ball, Emma Kenney as Deborah “Debbie” Gallagher and Cameron Monaghan as Ian Gallagher.
While Emmy Rossum returned as Frank’s eldest daughter Fiona Gallagher in season 9, it is reported that we won’t see any more of her in the upcoming seasons.
“This kind of stability, this family, has nurtured me and made feel safe enough to stretch and grow creatively,” she said. “The way John Wells has shepherded me as an actress, and more recently how he’s encouraged me wholeheartedly as a director and a writer, has been an honor and a privilege.”
Season eight marked the last for Isidora Goreshter as Svetlana Yevgenivna Fisher. The actress announced that she would be making an exit and won’t be in season nine and its following seasons.
