The last go-around of the smash hit dramedy arrives just in time for the holidays.
As the infamous hard rock bad Mötley Crüe once said before their final tour - "all bad things must come to an end."
Apparently, no truer words have every been spoken. This winter, the story of one of the downright dirtiest families in television history will come to an end. Showtime has announced the beginning of the end for the hit dramedy Shameless. The 11th and final season is slated to premiere on December 6 at 9pm ET.
This will mark the second season without matriarch Fiona Gallagher, played by Emmy Rossum. Rossum decided to leave the show in 2019 after Season 9. It is unclear as of yet whether or not Rossum will reprise her role for at least a cameo in the upcoming final season, but fans are certainly hopeful.
Since its debut in 2011, Shameless has become Showtime's top comedy. Created by Paul Abbott and developed for American television by John Wells, it is also the network's longest-running scripted series. Season 10 averaged 5.7 million weekly viewers across all platforms.
Shameless stars Emmy® and SAG Award® winner William H. Macy, Jeremy Allen White, Cameron Monaghan, Noel Fisher, Ethan Cutkosky, Shanola Hampton, Steve Howey, Emma Kenney, Christian Isaiah, and Kate Miner.
