“Shameless” Renewed For An Eighth Season

Showtime has ordered a twelve episode eighth season of its long running ensemble dramedy “Shameless” starring Emmy Rossum and William H. Macy.

The announcement comes a day after “Shameless” wrapped up its seventh season and follows a contract dispute over equal pay with Rossum which was settled last week.

The series remains Showtime’s top comedy with the penultimate episode of this past season pulling in nearly 1.6 million viewers. Production is slated to begin in 2017 with no premiere date yet set.
