Big news: Showtime is bringing us more Gallagher dysfunction with a ninth season of Shameless.
The exciting announcement comes fresh off the heels of the show’s season eight premiere, which drew the series’ highest ratings since the first episode of season three.
So what’s in store? According to Showtime CEO David Nevins, season eight is creatively stronger than any previous season. Whoa, we can only imagine the kind of rough-and-tumble trouble the Gallaghers will get into with so many more episodes.
There’s no word yet on whether season nine will be the show’s final season. Production is slated to begin next year.
Ain’t no shame in that.
