It appears Shameless still has a few tricks up its sleeve.

Showtime just announced that it’s adding two—we repeat, two—TV veterans to the season nine cast: Katey Sagal (Sons of Anarchy) and Courteney Cox (Friends).

Sagal will reprise her role as Ingrid Smith (you know, the psych patient), and Cox will play Jen Wagner, a famous actress who enlists Lip Gallagher (Jeremy Allen White) as a sober companion.

The good news is Emmy Rossum (Fiona Gallagher) couldn’t be more thrilled about their involvement. The actress posted a screenshot of the news on her Instagram Story and wrote, “Yes to these wonderful talented powerhouse females!”

Yes, indeed. The first part of Shameless season nine will hit Showtime on September 9. The second half will premiere on January 20, 2019.
