They may be down a couple of Gallaghers, but Shameless is officially coming back for a tenth season on Showtime. The network announced the news during their Television Critics’ Association panel this morning. With Emmy Rossum and Cameron Monaghan both signing off in season nine, stars William H. Macy, Jeremy Allen White, Ethan Cutkosky, Emma Kenney, and Christian Isaiah are all coming back, according to Deadline.
Showrunner John Wells also chimed in saying, “All of us on Shameless are delighted that we get to tell more wonderful Gallagher stories – and thankful to Showtime for their continued support. We can’t wait to get back to work with this extraordinary cast.” Despite the exit of Rossum, Macy, who has been consistently nominated for Emmy Awards, has been pretty vocal about there being a lot more story to tell about the ever-dysfunctional Gallagher family.
Season nine of Shameless is currently airing its back half of the season now on Showtime. It’s the final stretch for Emmy Rossum who has been playing the eldest Gallagher, Fiona, since the show’s 2011 premiere. Debbie is stepping up into a more maternal role, taking on the finances of the house – albeit a little on the intense side. Carl and Lip are both navigating some new and confusing relationships, and Frank is kind of about to become a father to sextuplets.
There’s a lot happening and we can’t wait to see what more is in store for the Gallaghers! Production on season 10 will begin sometime in 2019. Catch new episodes Sunday at 9/8c on Showtime!
