Shameless Season 6 Premiere Date

Shameless Season 6, Billions Get January Premiere Date at Showtime

Mark your calendars: Sunday, Jan. 17 is going to be a big day for behaving badly.

Not only does it mark the Season 6 premiere of Shameless (9/8c), but it also ushers in the series premiere of Billions (10/9c), Showtime announced Tuesday during the Television Critics Association summer press tour in Beverly Hills.

First, here’s what fans can expect from Shameless in 2016:

Season six of Shameless picks up a few months after last year’s finale, leaving the Gallaghers to prepare for yet another long Chicago winter. This season will see more than just the arctic Lake Michigan winds whipping through the Southside. Change is hard and the Gallaghers are as surprised as anyone at how life is turning out for them. But the question remains, as they come into their own and find out who they are, is it really possible that the Gallaghers could grow apart for good?


And here’s the scoop on Billions:

Billions is a bold, contemporary drama that explores worlds of ultra-wealth, influence and corruption as personified in two highly ambitious opposing figures: hard-charging, blue-blooded, politically connected U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti) and brilliant, calculating, blue-collar billionaire hedge fund king, Bobby ‘Axe’ Axelrod (Damian Lewis). Set amongst the Machiavellian machinations of New York City power politics and finance, Billions weaves an intricate narrative featuring a high-stakes game of predator-versus-prey. Maggie Siff, Malin Akerman, Toby Leonard Moore, David Costabile and Condola Rashad also star.
