Get ready to see the Gallaghers without Fiona. Showtime has set a premiere date for the tenth season of Shameless.
Shameless returns for Season 10 on Sunday, Nov. 3 at 9/8c, the network announced Friday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour. This season will be the first since Emmy Rossum left the long-running series earlier this year, and it marks the return of Cameron Monaghan, who initially departed the show earlier in Season 9.
Per the official logline, the tenth season of Shameless picks up six months after last season's finale: Frank (William H. Macy) uses his leg injury to collect as many prescription drugs as possible and his exploits lead him to an old friend. Debbie (Emma Kenney), emboldened by the $50,000 left to her by Fiona, has stepped in as the new matriarch, ruling over the Gallagher household with an iron fist. Lip (Jeremy Allen White) navigates his relationship with a newly affectionate Tami (Kate Miner). Carl (Ethan Cutkosky) has to decide what to do with his life as he finishes military school and heads back to the South Side. Liam (Christian Isaiah) is committed to learning more about black history and culture under the tutelage of V (Shanola Hampton) as Kev (Steve Howey) faces an identity crisis. Gallavich returns this season as Ian (Cameron Monaghan) and Mickey (Noel Fisher) rekindle their romance in prison as both cellmates and lovers.
The good news doesn't stop there. Showtime President of Entertainment Gary Levine doesn't seem to see any end in sight for Shameless. "There's still a lot of shamelessness left in Shameless, I'm happy to say," Levine told reporters during Showtime's executive session. "We're right in the middle of the tenth season right now. The stories are unbelievable. The characters are as vibrant as ever. And that show has just got the most unique tone on television... I don't know what the future holds, but the present is very exciting."
Monaghan previously told TV Guide at the TCA winter press tour that he hoped to see the new season explore more than just Ian's romance. "What I'd like to see [is] Ian pick up the pieces of his life. He's kind of dropped a nuclear bomb on it for the last couple seasons. So to see him try and rebuild would be kind of great and maybe not focus so much on him dating new people, being single and all of that. We've seen that before," he said.
Showtime has also announced season premiere dates for Kidding and Ray Donovan. Kidding returns for Season 2 on Sunday, Nov. 3 at 10/9c, immediately after Shameless. Ray Donovan returns for Season 7 on Sunday, Nov. 17 at 8/7c.
Shameless Season 10 premieres Sunday, Nov. 3 at 9/8c on Showtime.
