Shameless, a Showtime television series that has aired for ten years and eleven seasons, has had a lengthy and successful run. It tells the narrative of Frank Gallagher, a proud single father of six intelligent, hardworking, and independent children whose lives have been made more difficult by their alcoholic father.
When Frank isn’t in the bar squandering their few resources, he may be found passed out on the pub’s floor. Contrary to all expectations, the children have discovered methods to mature with the assistance of the eldest daughter, Fiona. They may not look or act like any other family you are familiar with, but they make no apologies for being who they are.
John Wells created this comedy-drama series, which went on to become Showtime’s longest-running original written series ever. As of January 2020, the 11th season had been confirmed and will begin airing in December 2020.
It was shown on April 11th, 2021, that the season’s last episode and the series’ final episode concluded. That the beloved program would be ending after this season has been shown has been revealed by Showtime. Many people liked the program and hoped against all odds that it would be revived for a second season. Here’s everything we know so far about upcoming episodes of Shameless on Showtime.
Shameless Season 12 Release Date
As soon as Shameless’ 11th season was revealed, it was billed as the show’s final one. Even the show’s official description stated: “It’s the last call and the Gallaghers are going out with the biggest bang ever. Changes are coming that will force each of them to either step up or hit the road, but they know one thing for certain – Gallaghers may grow up, but they’ll never grow apart.”
Shameless Hall of Shame will be Showtime’s newest six-episode limited series, replacing the previously scheduled season 12. Season 11 will feature a retrospective of the previous season’s events. It includes both brand-new sequences from Shameless and a look back at the lives of the various characters. Finally, in a way, it was the ideal way to wrap things up.
“The characters of Shameless have brought Showtime viewers more laughs and tears and pure enjoyment than any program in our history,” Gary Levine, the network’s President of Entertainment said as he revealed the final season of the show. “[But] we just felt like, 11 seasons is a big fat number. We just felt it was time, and we also liked the idea of giving John and co. a chance to end it well, to be able to aim for that landing.”
The show’s colorful characters will almost surely lead to future spin-offs based on its fan favorites. In contrast to what you might expect from a showrunner, Wells told The Hollywood Reporter that there isn’t much in the works right now.
“I haven’t been big on reviving any of the shows or continuing shows. They have a natural ending,” he stated. “I don’t want to talk ill of anybody else’s attempts to bring something back but there is something about the first time they are on that’s kind of magical. It was a show that people loved and you run the risk of undermining that. We are really proud of what we’ve been able to do with Shameless and the stories we’ve been able to tell and frankly that Showtime allowed us to tell. So, never say never but we haven’t had any conversations about it.”
