Shameless Season 12 Release Date, Cast, Trailer, What to expect?

Shameless Season 12 remained one of the most awaited seasons of the hilarious black family drama series developed by John Wells for Showtime.

Based on the British comedy TV series of the same name created by Paul Abbott, the series follows a dysfunctional Chicago family where a single father is spending his days drunk while his six children learn to take care of themselves.

The black comedy television series is produced by Michael Hissrich and Terri Murphy under Warner Bros Television, Showtime Networks, and John Wells Productions.

When did season 11 of Shameless come out?

Season 11 of Shameless began airing on 6 December 2020 and concluded with the release of 12th episode on 11 April 2021 on Showtime. Wells was disappointed with the idea that the show was coming to an end.

Is there a Shameless season 12?

There is no Shameless season 12 and also isn’t expected to happen in the future because the series have ended with an eleventh season.

The 11th season was announced as the finale season of the series by the original network Showtime and the hit family comedy series finally comes to an end on 11 April 2021.

In a recent interview with THR, showrunner John Wells revealed that he isn’t planning anything for the future of Shameless series right now but he will love writing the show forever. Everything is possible in this opportunistic world like Dopesick Season 2 on Hulu.

Where can I watch Shameless all seasons?

Who will cast in the new season of Shameless?

It stars William H Macy in the lead role of Frank who is single-handedly raising his six children including one nephew named Ian whom he raises as his son. Fans have witnessed all the main cast members growing from kids to adults during the show’s run.

The alcoholic father Frank Gallagher(played by William H Macy) won a screen guild award for playing his role. He might return for a small role in the new season because the kids have grown and they are having a separate family to take care of.

Those kids might come to see their father occasionally to know about his well being and also to introduce their children to grandpa. So, it is safe to assume that award winning actor will be absent in the new season and Shameless Season 12 cast members include:

  • Emmy Rossum as Fiona
  • Shanola Hampton as Veronica Fisher
  • Justin Chatwin as Steve Wilton
  • Emma Kenney as Debbie
  • Jeremy Allen White as Philip Gallagher
  • Cameron Monaghan as Ian
  • Ethan Cutkosky as Carl

These are the ones who have transformed from kids to adults and that’s why a whole generation is attached to them. A decade from 2011-2021 belongs to Gallagher family and their bittersweet memories.

Even though, a new season is not coming out, we can expect to see all the family members together once again in a reunion type show sometime later in 2024.

What will happen in Shameless Season 12?

Wells is having an idea about what would happen to the characters if the series will work as a spinoff. Lip gets a new bike and become the new patriarch for the crazy dysfunctional Gallagher family. Ian and Mickey will raise their kid.

You can add your imagination to the series like Carl being the father of Tish’s child or Tami going pregnant again. Fiona getting a job Disney World in Epcot Center or the reunion of Jimmy and Steve, anything can happen.

We didn’t get a chance to see Fiona in the finale season due to Covid-19 restrictions but Wells knows exactly where was she residing for the whole time in the series. It can be a completely different story.
