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?
Guess that 'West Wing' reunion wasn't quite as long as we'd thought. Showtime has amassed a considerable amount of clout in the past several years, but perhaps never more so than the recent Emmy awards, in which 'Homeland' took away just about every major category, including the network's first win for 'Outstanding Drama.' Is it any surprise, then, that even a low-class drama like 'Shameless' could attract a former 'West Wing'er for a season 3 role? But whom will Bradley Whitford play?
The fall TV season is barely underway, so can it be that we're really already looking forward to 2013? If you're looking for fresh 'Shameless, ' 'House of Lies' and 'Californication,' absolutely! Showtime has made its 2013 lineup official, kicking off with new adventures for the Gallaghers, Galweather & Stearn, and even Hank Moody, but which Sundays will be getting positively sinful with the network's new line-up?
We certainly hope you like memes joking about your favorite TV series, because you're going to be seeing a lot of them at Comic-Con 2012. We already showed you a few of the 'Dexter' meme posters that will adorn everything from advertisements, to bags, buses and badges, but just how deep does Showtime's sense of humor run? Check out what other Showtime shows are getting the meme treatment this summer in San Diego!
