'Shameless' Adds More Season 9 Episodes, Will Split Into Two Parts

Shameless has received an expanded season nine order, and the new season will air in two parts.

The ninth season will be 14 episodes instead of 12, Showtime announced on Monday (August 6) at the TCA summer press tour.

The first seven episodes will begin airing on September 9 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, with a midseason finale on October 21 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The second half of season nine will premiere on January 20, 2019 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Season nine, which is currently in production in Los Angeles, will also feature the show’s 100th episode.

In the new season, “political fervor hits the South Side, and the Gallaghers take justice into their own hands. Frank (William H. Macy) sees financial opportunity in campaigning and decides to give voice to the underrepresented South Side working man. Fiona (Emmy Rossum) tries to build on her success with her apartment building and takes an expensive gamble hoping to catapult herself into the upper echelon. Lip (Jeremy Allen White) distracts himself from the challenges of sobriety by taking in Eddie’s niece, Xan (Amirah Johnson). Ian (Cameron Monaghan) faces the consequences of his crimes as the Gay Jesus movement takes a destructive turn. Debbie (Emma Kenney) fights for equal pay and combats harassment; and her efforts lead her to an unexpected realization. Carl (Ethan Cutkosky) sets his sights on West Point and prepares himself for cadet life. Liam (Christian Isaiah) must develop a new skillset to survive outside of his cushy private school walls.”

Shanola Hampton, Steve Howey, and Richard Flood also star, and Dan Lauria and Ashley Romans will have recurring roles.

'Shameless' Renewed for Ninth Season, Emmy Rossum Shares Reaction!

Shameless will be getting a ninth season at Showtime!

The news was announced moments ago ahead of the show’s eighth season premiere this Sunday. Production on season 9 will begin next year.

“Because of your love we will be making A NINTH season of shameless. And thank you Showtime, John Wells & our writers,” the show’s star Emmy Rossum tweeted after the news broke.

Season eight finds the Gallaghers on an upswing – Frank (William H. Macy) comes out of a drug-induced haze and decides it’s finally time to be a contributing member of society. Fiona (Rossum) faces hard decisions when she discovers her success as a landlord might mean someone else’s misfortune. Lip (Jeremy Allen White) struggles with unexpected sacrifices he must make to stay sober, while Ian (Cameron Monaghan) takes up a cause in hopes of getting back with Trevor (Elliot Fletcher). Debbie (Emma Kenney) builds her future at welding school while juggling life as a single working mom, as Carl (Ethan Cutkosky) gets creative finding tuition money after he loses his scholarship. Meanwhile, Liam (Christian Isaiah) discovers just how different the Gallaghers are from the families of his rich classmates as Frank schools him on “sticking it to the man.” Kev (Steve Howey) and V (Shanola Hampton) have to find a way to deal with Svetlana (Isidora Goreshter) after she steals their bar, The Alibi.
