After ten seasons and the eleventh coming this June 15 to Amazon Prime Video, the time has finally come for the famous Gallagher family to bow out and say goodbye to “Shameless”. So this is good news and bad news at the same time for the fans, knowing that season 10 was released in 2019. For this final season of the famous comedy-drama series, we have therefore decided to give a little recap of what happened during the last episodes and tell you about what we already know about season 11 of Shameless.
“Shameless”, what is it about?
For those who do not yet know the series, it is a dramatic comedy that was created by Paul Abbott who is also at the origin of other titles like “No Offense” or “Hit and Miss »And which is the remake of the English series of the same name. The series debuted in 2011 and has been so successful that it is now season 11.
The series takes us to Canaryville, in the suburbs of Chicago, where we follow the daily life of a dysfunctional family, that of the Gallaghers and their neighbors in the neighborhood. A family of Frank, an alcoholic, drug-addicted and unemployed father his wife left alone with six children. So we have the oldest, Fiona, it is she who replaces the mother of the family by taking care of the rest of the siblings and working at the same time to bring in the money, then there is Lip, the little genius. family, then Ian, a young man who is not afraid of anything and who is gay, Debbie, the resourceful, Carl, the little boss of the house, and finally Liam the last of the family. Add to that Kevin and Veronica, the loyal neighbors who are always there in case something goes wrong.
Without parents to supervise them and to raise them, the children are therefore left on their own to survive, between petty theft, scams of all kinds, disputes between them between brothers and sisters, problems at school, violence in the neighborhood, and without forgetting the alcoholic father who takes advantage of children to extract or even steal money. It is therefore in this rather crazy atmosphere that the creator took us on board and regaled us for ten seasons.
“Shameless” Season 10 Recap
Attention Spoiler for those who are not yet into Season 10, since before entering Season 11 of “Shameless” it is important to give a little recap of what happened in the last few episodes. As a reminder, this season of the series has ended well for everyone, except for Debbie who in the end is arrested in the Gallagher house by two inspectors, accusing her of rape of a minor after her relationship. Julia. This is the daughter of his ex Claudia.
So this is Debbie’s first real problem with the law since the series began.
As for the rest and this is what stood out for the fans, the season ended on a high note with the wedding of Ian Gallagher and Mickey Milkovich. A lifelong “yes” that fans have been waiting for several seasons now and has finally come true. Even Frank, who didn’t even want to come to this union, was proud to see his son get married.
The plot and cast of season 11
This season will therefore be the end of the crazy adventures of the Gallagher and the “Shameless” series after ten years. And as you would expect, it will be marked by a dramatic event that executive producer John Wells explained bluntly, so beware of spoilers. After several years of alcoholism and drugs of all kinds, Franck, the patriarch of the Gallagher’s, is going to say goodbye to the series in the morgue.
Indeed, according to the explanations given by the production, he was taken to hospital by the family after having overdosed. But, that’s not what will kill him, because that’s after he dies from COVID. We will then have the right to a very moving scene during which he will say goodbye to his children in a voiceover message.
For the rest of the family, Lip will have to choose whether to become the new patriarch of the family or continue his life elsewhere. For the newlyweds, Ian and Mickey, the rules and responsibilities of married life will be at the center of this season. For Deb, she is starting her life as a single mother again. Carl finds himself a new career in law enforcement. And finally Kevin and Veronica, the faithful neighbors will also have to choose between staying on the South Side or leaving the neighborhood.
On the casting side, it should be noted that Emmy Rossum (Fiona) will unfortunately not be present in this final season, even if it was planned. For the rest, we will find the initial cast of previous seasons. We will therefore see William H. Macy (aka Frank), Jeremy Allen White (Lip), Kate Miner (Tami), Cameron Monaghan (Ian), Noel Fisher (Mickey), Emma Kenney (Debbie), Ethan Cutkosky (Carl), Christian Isaiah (Liam), Shanola Hampton (V) and Steve Howey (Kev).
