Recently picked up for an eighth season, SHAMELESS stars Oscar® nominee, Emmy® winner and three-time Screen Actors Guild Award winner William H.

As THE FAMILY grappled with mixed feelings about their grief, Fiona once again found herself playing caretaker to Frank. Debbie (Emma Kenney), Carl (Ethan Cutkosky), and Liam got roped into yet another of Frank's capers, while Lip (Jeremy Allen White) and Ian (Cameron Monaghan) took important steps to improve his future. Meanwhile, Kev (Steve Howey) and V (Shanola Hampton) got their revenge on Svetlana (Isidora Goreshter). Created by Paul Abbott, the series is produced by Bonanza Productions in association with John Wells Productions and Warner Bros. Television. SHAMELESS is executive produced by John Wells, Nancy M. Pimental, Christopher Chulack, Krista Vernoff, Etan Frankel and Sheila Callaghan.
