Shameless Season 10 Is Officially Happening -- and Ian Gallagher Is Coming Back


Megan Vick

Shamelessis officially coming back! Showtime announced that the veteran drama series has been renewed for Season 10, despite Emmy Rossum moving on at the end of the currently airing Season 9.

That's not all the good news. Cameron Monaghan, who departed the series in the first half of Season 9, will return for the 10th season as Ian Gallagher. The last we saw of Ian, he was starting his prison sentence after his stint as Gay Jesus and getting a locked up happily ever after with Mickey (Noel Fisher).

Production on the new season will begin in 2019 but no premiere date has been set yet. The 10th season will see the Gallaghers trying to keep their heads above water without their stand-in matriarch Fiona (Rossum). Ian's return to the series could help fill that void, but with Rossum gone, you can expect that Debbie (Emma Kenney) and Carl (Ethan Cutkosky) taking bigger roles within the family.

"All of us on Shameless are delighted that we get to tell more wonderful Gallagher stories - and thankful to Showtime for their continued support. We can't wait to get back to work with this extraordinary cast," showrunner John Wells said in a statement.
