Shameless renewed for Season 10 at Showtime
Showtime has renewed their Golden Globe-nominated dramedy Shameless for a 10th season, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. This marks the first original Showtime series to hit 10 seasons.
The news follows the departure of Cameron Monaghan in the first half of Season 9 and ahead of Emmy Rossum’s upcoming exit in the Season 9 finale. However, Showtime entertainment co-president Gary Levine announced that Monaghan will be returning in Season 10. The second half of Season 9 is currently airing.
In season nine of Shameless, political fervor hits the South Side, and the Gallaghers take justice into their own hands. Frank (Macy) sees financial opportunity in campaigning and decides to give voice to the underrepresented South Side working man. Fiona (Rossum) tries to build on her success with her apartment building and takes an expensive gamble hoping to catapult herself into the upper echelon. Lip (Jeremy Allen White) distracts himself from the challenges of sobriety by taking in Eddie’s niece, Xan (Amirah Johnson). Ian (Cameron Monaghan) faces the consequences of his crimes as the Gay Jesus movement takes a destructive turn. Debbie (Emma Kenney) fights for equal pay and combats harassment, and her efforts lead her to an unexpected realization. Carl (Ethan Cutkosky) sets his sights on West Point and prepares himself for cadet life. Liam (Christian Isaiah) must develop a new skillset to survive outside of his cushy private school walls. Kevin (Steve Howey) and V (Shanola Hampton) juggle the demands of raising the twins with running the Alibi as they attempt to transform the bar into a socially conscious business.
Shameless stars Oscar nominee and Emmy and SAG Award winner William H. Macy and Golden Globe nominee Emmy Rossum. Created by Paul Abbott, Shameless is produced by Bonanza Productions in association with John Wells Productions and Warner Bros. Television. Developed for American television by John Wells, the series is executive produced by Wells, Nancy M. Pimental and Sheila Callaghan.
Season 10 of Shameless will premiere in late 2019.
