With Shameless‘ eleventh and final season airing in just a few weeks, it’s only right that we spill the beans on the plot, cast, and release date.

Just like the things in our lives, everything must come to an end. And that is exactly what Shameless Season 11 is about – how the lives of the Gallagher crew will move forward.

Two seasons ago on Shameless, we bid farewell to the family’s matriarch Fiona who is played by Emmy Rossum. Although, we applaud how the show was able to bounce back from her departure, it was still not the same. After her Rossum’s decision to leave, the show resumed production and was slowed down by the pandemic as it was beginning to gain momentum. However, like the family’s patriarch, Shameless won’t go out swinging, drinking, and staggering its way to our hearts.

Plot of Shameless Season 11

Shameless revolves around an Irish-American family living in Chicago, the Gallaghers. We have an alcoholic dad named Frank who fails to care for his six children.

Just like any dysfunctional family, the responsibility falls upon the shoulders of whoever is the eldest because it’s deemed that they’re the most functional ones. In this case, it was Fiona who was left to care for Lip, Ian, Debbie, Carl, and Liam. It’s an incredible experience to witness how Fiona manages to take care of them, we can’t help but feel bad for her.

The long-running show, Shameless, has gained quite the following throughout the years. And just like that, we see how each and everyone of the Gallaghers grew.

The Cast of Shameless Season 11

The main cast is pretty much complete and the only one missing is Fiona who is played by Emmy Rossum.

  • William H. Macy as Frank Gallagher

Other cast members include Noel Fisher, Emma Kenney, Christian Isaiah and Kate Miner.

While we all know that Emmy Rossum will no longer be playing Fiona, there is a slight chance of her coming back for an episode or two as a last hurrah and an ode to her journey with the other Gallaghers from Shameless.

So, When Will Be Shameless Season 11 Be Released?

Shameless Season 11 will be released on December 6 which is a Sunday through Showtime. Just like the show’s previous seasons, we are expected to have 12 episodes in the final outing and will be aired weekly.

If that’s the case, the show’s last season should be wrapped up early net year.
