Shameless has been renewed for Season 11. Unfortunately, this renewal comes with a bit of bad news.

All good things must come to an end… And it is the end of the road for the showtime hit series.

According to E! News, it was confirmed during the 2020 Television Critics Association winter press tour that Shameless would be renewed for Season 11. This, however, would be the final run for the Gallagher family.

What will the cast for Season 11 of Shameless look like?

Fans of Shameless can only hope the cast will stay mostly intact as we move into Season 11. Fortunately, the leading actor William H. Macy will return to give Frank Gallagher one last season. John Wells will also be returning to take the lead as the executive producer.

The cast for Season 11 of Shameless will also include Jeremy Allen White, Cameron Monaghan, Emma Kenney, Ethan Cutkosky, Shanola Hampton, Steve Howey, Noel Fisher, Kate Miner, and Christian Isaiah.

Unfortunately, there is currently no word whether any of the former cast members will return to the series for one final season. As fans recall, Emmy Rossum, who played Fiona Gallagher, exited the seasons after season nine. Fiona walked away from her family with a large chunk of money in her pocket to start living her own life.

Other former cast members that have been on the show over the years include Justin Chatwin, Joan Cusack, Isidora Goreshter, Jake McDorman, and Emma Greenwell. Only time will tell if any of these cast members decide to revive their roles and come back to the series one last time.

Shameless has had one heck of a run over the years.

Shameless just recently celebrated its ninth birthday. The series has won three Emmys over the years. This included one that went to Joan Cusack for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series. While Joan was essentially a main character and a loved character for a few seasons… She was technically a guest star of the series.

Unfortunately, Macy is the only other member of the cast to receive an Emmy nomination. Many die hard fans of the series think it is a crying shame none of the other cast members have ever won an Emmy for their performance in this series.


Both John Wells and William H. Macy have expressed being hopefully Emmy Rossum would return to the series. Naturally, fans wished for the same.

Technically, Shameless is based off of a U.K. series also named Shameless. The U.K. version of the series also ended after 11 seasons. So, there were some fans and outlets that predicted this might happen.

Are you relieved to know Shameless was renewed for Season 11? How do you feel knowing the series is ending? Sound off in the comments down below.
