Showtime has renewed “Shameless” for an 11th and final season, the network announced on Monday during the Television Critics Association press tour.
The final season will air this summer. The series, which is the longest-running in Showtime’s history, is finishing out its 10th season, which will end on Jan. 26. That means that 2020 will see the end of two major series for Showtime, with “Homeland” returning on Feb. 9 for its eighth and final season.
“It will be one last hurrah for the Gallaghers and their unique blend of love and lechery,” Gary Levine, president of entertainment for Showtime, said in making the announcement. “John Wells and his gifted cast promise to take ‘Shameless’ out for a bang, and knowing Gallaghers we all as we all do, that is no idle threat.”
“Shameless” stars William H. Macy, Jeremy Allen White, Ethan Cutkosky, Emma Kenney, Christian Isaiah and Cameron Monaghan. The show also starred Emmy Rossum for its first nine seasons.
Created by Paul Abbott, “Shameless” is produced by Bonanza Productions in association with John Wells Productions and Warner Bros. Television. Developed for American television by Wells, the series is executive produced by Wells and Nancy M. Pimental.
Additionally, Showtime announced Monday that its “Penny Dreadful” sequel, “City of Angels” will premiere in April, renewed “The L Word: Generation Q” and “Work in Progress” for second seasons, and that its revival of the ex-HBO docuseries “Vice” will debut in March.
