Shameless is officially coming back for an eighth season!
The hit Showtime series, which had its season seven finale last night, will get twelve episodes for the next season in 2017.
It was previously unclear if the show would continue after its star Emmy Rossum demanded to be paid equally to her male co-star William H. Macy. She reportedly wanted more money than him to make up for years of unequal pay, but confirmed last week that a deal was reached.
As season seven of Shameless came to an end, the Gallaghers dealt with the loss of one of their own, and grappled with mixed feelings about their grief. Fiona (Rossum) had to once again care for Frank (Macy) in his time of need, while Frank had a new scheme in mind.
The season seven finale ended almost like a series finale with a montage of where the characters have gone. But, we’re glad to get more episodes!
