Remember when you could count on Shameless airing in early January? Well, those days are long gone. This year our favorite band of miscreants returns to the small screen on November 5th. And this time the patriarch of the family, Frank Gallagher, will be doing his best to redeem himself in the eyes of those he loves most. But since drugs and alcohol really don’t give a shit he had to settle for his kids. Of course, since this is Frank we’re talking about we doubt this will last more than one or two episodes. Because let’s face it, no one really believes Frank will ever be anything more than a complete asshole.
Returning to canvas this season is Elliott Fletcher, Ruby Modine, and Scott Michael Campbell. Unfortunately, Brenden & Brandon Sims who shared the role of the youngest Gallagher since season two will not be back. The role of Liam Gallagher will now be played by Christian Isiah. Gossip Girl alum Jessica Szohr will have a recurring role this season as a tenant in Fiona’s newly acquired apartment building.
