Earlier this week it was reported that Rossum had been seeking salary parity with co-star William H. Macy. Rossum’s camp reportedly argued that the actress should be paid more than Macy to make up for the seven seasons in which she earned considerably less than the veteran actor.
Terms of Rossum’s new deal were not disclosed.
Showtime has yet to officially renew Shameless for an eighth season. The series’ current seventh season wraps on Dec. 18.
