With 8 million episodes a week, the most recent eighth season of Shameless was most watched in Showtime’s history and ranked as the No.1 premium cable series in 2018.
“That show defies gravity,” Showtime president of programming Gary Levine said during the Showtime TCA executive session when asked about how many seasons they envision the family drama-comedy will run.
“Our feeling is that the Gallaghers can live on…, I don’t mind having them on the air for years to come.
Showtime CEO David Nevins credited the setup of the show, a “family group of characters who change over time” as helping to drive its longevity.
Ultimately, “it will be up to (executive producers) John Wells and Nancy Pimental behind the camera and Emmy Rossum and Bill Macy in front of the camera” when the series will end, Levine said.
With Homeland ending after Season 8, Ray Donovan becomes Showtime’s second longest-running scripted series. Levine feels optimistic about the prospects of the drama going beyond its upcoming fifth season, in which the title character moves from Los Angeles to New York. The change of scenery has been great for the series, Levine said.
“We are looking toward and enjoying this revitalized new direction for Ray,” he said.
We’ll give you the good news first, Shameless fans: Season 9 of the Emmy-nominated dramedy has been expanded to 14 episodes, up from its usual 12-episode order, Showtime announced Monday.
The super-sized season, though, will now air in two parts. The first seven episodes will begin airing Sunday, Sept. 9, at 9/8c, wrapping up with a midseason finale on Sunday, Oct. 21. The season will then resume for seven more installments on Sunday, Jan. 20, 2019.
Below is the official description for Shameless‘ ninth season, which was rumored back in June to be increasing its episode order:
Political fervor hits the South Side, and the Gallaghers take justice into their own hands. Frank sees financial opportunity in campaigning and decides to give voice to the underrepresented South Side working man. Fiona tries to build on her success with her apartment building and takes an expensive gamble hoping to catapult herself into the upper echelon. Lip distracts himself from the challenges of sobriety by taking in Eddie’s niece, Xan. Ian faces the consequences of his crimes as the Gay Jesus movement takes a destructive turn. Debbie fights for equal pay and combats harassment, and her efforts lead her to an unexpected realization. Carl sets his sights on West Point and prepares himself for cadet life. Liam must develop a new skill set to survive outside of his cushy private school walls.
As previously reported, Richard Flood has been promoted to series-regular status for Season 9 (as Fiona’s Irish carpenter boyfriend, Ford), while Dan Lauria (Pitch) will recur as a disgraced former congressman.
ET exclusively debuts a behind-the-scenes sneak peek from the Showtime series, which returns Sunday, Sept. 9 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
