This shouldn't come as much of a surprise, given that Showtime's most quietly-continuing 'Episodes' had already been granted an additional season, but good news all the same: Emmy Rossum-William H. Macy family drama 'Shameless' will officially return for a fifth season in 2015, as the Don Cheadle- and Kristen Bell-starring 'House of Lies' will return for its fourth.
At long last, we can finally put aside all the holiday chicanery and get back to what we do best: watching TV! The winter 2014 season will officially have gotten underway with next Sunday's Showtime premieres of 'Shameless' season 4, 'House of Lies' season 3 and 'Episodes' season 3, but you can watch the uncut premieres of all three right now!
We're less than two weeks away from the season 4 premiere of Showtime's 'Shameless,' but why wait until January 12 for an inside look at the "Simple Pleasures" of the latest premiere? Check out a full set of photos and clips, and a synopsis of the Gallaghers' latest with new sneak peeks of the 'Shameless' season 4 premiere!
Both of Showtime's Sunday dramas 'Masters of Sex' and 'Homeland' have said their goodbyes for 2013, though it won't be long before we have at least 'Shameless' and 'House of Lies' to keep us warm, while the final season of 'Californication' has been pushed to April. The first season 4 trailer for 'Shameless' has arrived, so what new family chaos pushes the Gallaghers around in 2014?
Well, this seems surprisingly bleak. Showtime's 'Shameless' has proven to be no stranger to all manner of depravity, even some impressive violence, in its three seasons. However, it appears Justin Chatwin's series regular character, Jimmy Lishman/Steve, had a much more permanent exit than we expected at the climax of the season 3 finale, "Survival of the Fittest."
It's official, Showtime's "Sinful Sundays" are a big hit. Following increases in rating and acclaim, Showtime has opted to renew its Sunday triumvirate of 'Shameless,' 'House of Lies' and 'Californication' for additional seasons to begin airing in 2014. The move comes as something of a surprise for 'Californication' at least, thought to be on its last legs and debating the possibility of a spin-off featuring Maggie Grace's character "Faith." Find out what Showtime has to say about the renewals inside!
After all the holiday debauchery of Christmas and New Years, it'll be a relief to see someone else's dysfunctional family squabble enough to kill one another. Enter the Gallaghers, for an all-new season of 'Shameless' beginning Sunday, January 13! Before the big premiere, go behind the scenes of one of Showtime's most scandalous hits as they preview all the schemes, scams and scoundrels to come from another year in the Gallagher household. Get 'Shameless' with a new preview inside!
That hole in all our Sunday nights left by 'The Walking Dead' and 'Boardwalk Empire' is about to get even bigger, as both 'Homeland' and 'Dexter' conclude their current seasons next week. However will we pass the time until the return of such Showtime favorites as 'Shameless,' 'House of Lies,' and 'Californication?' Why, with a new trailer for 'Shameless' season 3, of course! The Gallaghers are back, and dirtier than ever, so what's in store for 'Shameless' season 3?
The second season of Showtime's 'Shameless' might have ended on a picture perfect note, with Fiona (Emmy Rossum) and Steve Jimmy (Justin Chatwin) headed for a happily ever after, out of trouble with the law and headed toward a gainfully employed future, but season 3 will be far from roses. In fact, the relationship might not be what either had in mind, according to the newest featurette! So what's on deck to tear apart the Gallaghers this year?
The Gallaghers may not have a lot of staying power in their bank account, but 'Shameless' certainly does as it returns for a third season this January, with plenty of new schemes to make a quick buck. Fiona in particular seems to be taking charge judging by the first trailer, but it's Frank down in Mexico we should really be worried about. Want ot see what the Gallaghers are up to before 'Shameless' season 3 drops in January?
