Shameless Trailer: The Gallaghers Grapple With Gentrification, Marriage and Legal Weed in Final Season

Frank Gallagher wants to make American dangerous again — or at least his little corner of it — in the trailer for the 11th and final season of Showtime’s Shameless.

Other hot topics in the trailer above include V and Kev differing on how to embrace the legalized-weed economy, and “Gallovich” needing to arrive at a “mutual understanding” of how their nascent marriage will work.

Kicking off Sunday, Dec. 6, Shameless‘ farewell run will mark the show’s second season without leading lady Emmy Rossum as Gallagher matriarch Fiona. Returning cast members include William H. Macy (as Frank), Jeremy Allen White (Lip), Kate Miner (Tami), Cameron Monaghan (Ian), Noel Fisher (Mickey), Emma Kenney (Debbie), Ethan Cutkosky (Carl), Christian Isaiah (Liam), Shanola Hampton (V) and Steve Howey (Kev).

“The final season of Shameless finds the Gallagher family and the South Side at a crossroads, with changes caused by the COVID pandemic, gentrification and aging to reconcile,” says the official synopsis. “As Frank confronts his own mortality and family ties in his alcoholic and drug induced twilight years, Lip struggles with the prospect of becoming the family’s new patriarch. Newlyweds Ian and Mickey are figuring out the rules and responsibilities of being in a committed relationship while Deb embraces her individuality and single motherhood. Carl finds an unlikely new career in law enforcement and Kevin and V struggle to decide whether a hard life on the South Side is worth fighting for.”
