An Introduction to Shameless

In Shameless, we can find the Gallaghers who are a uniquely dysfunctional family of Irish-American descent. Frank, the father and the head of the family, is a massive drinker which makes Fiona, the eldest daughter, the self-proclaimed parent to her five brothers and sisters. Ian, Lip, Carl, Liam, and Debbie along with Fiona, live in the Canaryville neighbourhood of Chicago where they have to deal with life on a regular basis. They need to steal food and money in order to fill their bellies. 

Shameless is the story of a family where the father is incompetent and the eldest daughter has to take of the family on her own. It includes raising her siblings as well as balancing her own life. Each episode of the show is filled with crazy situations that one or more Gallaghers get into. Shameless has given us 11 seasons and now it’s time to know whether there will be a Shameless season 12 on Netflix.

Shameless Season 12 Trailer

We did not get a well-rounded ending from the show, so we can expect a new season where everything will unravel in its own way. But, as of now, there is no information regarding the series’s return. So naturally, there is no trailer for the 12th season either. We can only hope to see one when the makers decide to create a new season of Shameless.
