Showtime Releases Trailer for ‘Shameless’ Season 9

Showtime is home to one of those special “real world” series that continues to bend the genre on what a family drama can be. We’re speaking, of course, of the much-acclaimed Shameless.

The series was renewed for a ninth season, and we’ve finally got our first look at what the next season will hold for the Gallagher clan:

The cable network says a political fervor will hit the South Side in season 9 of Shameless, and the Gallaghers are taking justice into their own hands. Frank (William H. Macy) sees financial opportunity in campaigning and decides to give voice to the underrepresented South Side working man. Fiona (Emmy Rossum) tries to build on her success with her apartment building and takes an expensive gamble hoping to catapult into the upper echelon. Lip (Jeremy Allen White) distracts himself from the challenges of sobriety by taking in Eddie’s niece, Xan (Amirah Johnson), and Ian (Cameron Monaghan) sees the Gay Jesus movement takes a destructive turn.

Shameless returns on Sunday, September 9th at 9 p.m. on SHOWTIME.

About Mary Anne Butler

Bleeding Cool News Editor Mary Anne Butler (Mab, for short) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), and most recently Bleeding Cool.


Over the past 10 years, she’s built a presence at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always).

Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence.

Though she be but little, she is fierce. #MabTheProfessional
