Is the American version the same as the British version?
Starring William Macy as Frank Gallagher, Emmy Rossum as Fiona Gallagher, Ethan Cutkoshy as Carl Gallagher among many others in lead, the series is an American comedy drama developed by John Wells. The show is an adaptation of the British series by the same name.
Shameless depicts the poor, dysfunctional family of Frank Gallagher who is a single father raising six children. He spends his days drinking and in search of misadventures, while his children learn to take care of themselves. Showrunner Paul Abbott did everything he could to make the show different from the British one. He aimed to bring the audience closer and allow them to resonate better with the storyline and characters.
What was season 10 about?
10 years is a very long time to see a show run so successfully. Not only do the characters from the series grow older (and in most cases, mature), but dedicated fans who have never missed an episode or a season do too. “I was literally 10 when I started watching shameless season 1, I turned 15 when season 6 was out. I’ll be 20 If season 11 is released this year” said a fan.
As Ian and Mickey finally tied the knot, one person who didn’t seem too happy about this event was Mickey’s homophobic father who tried everything he could stop the wedding from happening. But luckily his attempt to burn down the venue failed and so did a life-threatening drive-by he attempted while the newlyweds were on their honeymoon.
Not to forget to mention, sweet Kevin proposes to V, and they’re finally enegaged. Poor Lip relapses after Tami leaves him, but he realises where he went wrong and attends AA with Brad. Oh, Debbie and Carl are in such a hot mess with getting involved with an underage girl.
What will happen in season 11?
Well, we know how season 10 ended. So it’s quite clear how season 11 will continue the incomplete stories and hopefully end on a good note just like all fans are hoping it will. While there isn’t much left to explore, season 11 could possibly cover everything that happens after Terry tries to destroy Ian and Mickey’s ew marriage. Meanwhile, Lip and Tami could be seen working on their relationship post his relapse.
Similarly, Debbi and Carl’s issue will be resolved and Frank will continue to do Frank-like things of giving speeches and lectures while Kev and V figure out their new titles as each other’s fiancés.
When will season 11 be released?
So the most important information that you’ve probably been waiting to know since for ever is here. After season 10 ‘s final episode ended in January this year, showrunners announced that season 11 would be released in a couple of months from then.
To be precise, the final season was to air sometime in June 2020. So, ideally it was meant to be a simmer thing. But due to the deadly pandemic, everything is off schedule and for now it is uncertain to say when the new season will be released.
However, there are speculations that season 11 might be released in November or December of this year, that’s if everything is resumed back to normal. Sigh!
