Episodes‘ final episodes may be upon us.
Responding to a recent tweet by series star Matt LeBlanc, Showtime programming chief Gary Levine said Tuesday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour, “That’s a real possibility [that Season 5 will be the last].”
“On this series, we are in the very talented hands of Jeffrey Klarik and David Crane, and they are hard at work on the fifth season,” Levin added. “We will wait to see if white smoke or black smoke comes out of the chimney at the end of that.”
Explaining the comedy’s delayed Season 5 arrival, Levin hailed it as “one of the most well-crafted comedies on television. Because it’s so painstakingly crafted … it takes a rather long time between seasons, and we are waiting patiently for that.”
Earlier during Showtime’s TCA session, CEO David Nevins announced that Shameless had been renewed for Season 7 and revealed premiere date for Penny Dreadful Season 3.
