Shameless,’ a John Wells-created Showtime tragicomedy-drama television series, is based on Paul Abbott’s award-winning British television series.
The slice-of-life drama is set in Chicago’s Canaryville neighborhood on the city’s South Side and centers on the Gallagher family, a colorful gang of folks.
Apart from being always inebriated, grandfather Frank Gallagher is constantly looking for outlandish calamities. He spirals lower after his wife’s death, his life disintegrating around him, and his children growing estranged.
According to the network, the comedy series aired for eleven seasons after its premiere in January 2011, making it the longest-running scripted show in television history.
The series gained widespread critical acclaim in the media for its stellar cast, compelling story arcs, and sometimes shock value. Naturally, you’re wondering about the twelfth episode’s production status. If that is the case, we have some encouraging news.
Shameless Season 12 Release Date
‘Shameless’ Season 11 premiered on Showtime on December 6, 2020, and will finish with the season finale on April 11, 2021. On October 11, 2021, the season will be available on the streaming service Netflix.
The eleventh season’s episodes run between 45 and 59 minutes, making it the show’s longest season.
When Shameless’s 12th season was unveiled, it was declared the series’ last season. Indeed, the performance’s official description claimed: “It’s the final call, and the Gallaghers are going out with a boom unlike any other band has ever done.”
They will be forced to adapt or leave when changes occur, but one thing is certain: the Gallaghers will never grow apart, regardless of how much time passes.
On the other hand, Showtime has launched Shameless Hall of Shame, a six-episode limited series that would replace the show’s 12th season. Season 11 will be a retrospective of previous seasons.
Shameless Season 12 Plot
It features new and unique Shameless moments and a retrospective of each character’s existence. It was an excellent approach to put the series close to the series’ conclusion.
According to Gary Levine, the network’s President of Entertainment, Shameless has generated more laughter, tears, and pure enjoyment for Showtime fans than any other show in the network’s history.
Showtime will premiere the last season of the show this September. “However, we believed that 11 seasons was a colossal and significant amount.” The time has here, and we adored the idea of allowing John and the rest of the squad to finish strong to attempt that landing.
