Chicagoan Frank Gallagher is the proud single dad of six smart, industrious, independent kids, who without him would be… perhaps better off. When Frank’s not at the bar spending what little money they have, he’s passed out on the floor. But the kids have found ways to grow up in spite of him. They may not be like any family you know, but they make no apologies for being exactly who they are.
Showtime announced today during their TCA presentation that Shameless has been renewed for an eleventh and final season. The pickup, which comes in the midst of Season 10, will see that the drama has plenty of time to craft a proper and fitting end to its storylines.
The cable network's longest-running series, Shameless has managed to stay creatively strong and draw solid viewership throughout its run. Though its ratings aren't what they were in earlier years, it remains the cable network's top-performing series.
William H. Macy stars in Shameless as a deadbeat alcoholic father of six children. He survives by relying on unlawful schemes while leaving his kids to fend for themselves.
Look for the 11th and final season of Shameless to premiere this summer.
