Showtime Renews “Shameless,” Delays “Homeland”

Showtime Renews Shameless Delays Homeland

It was Showtime’s turn at the TCA’s today with the premium cabler offering up a few key announcements.

First up, their biggest hit “Shameless” has been renewed for a tenth season. In addition, actor Cameron Monaghan will return for the new season after exiting the show in the first half of the ninth.

The eighth and final season of terror drama “Homeland” has been delayed to the Fall from an originally scheduled June date. The delay is said to be due to filming internationally slowing things down.

A sequel to the lesbian drama series “The L Word” has been announced with Katherine Moennig and Leisha Hailey reprising their roles. The series is headed into production this summer for debut by the end of this year. Marja-Lewis Ryan will serve as showrunner alongside creator Ilene Chaiken.

Bryan Cranston has signed on to star in and executive produce Showtime’s high-profile legal thriller limited series “Your Honor”. Cranston will star as a respected judge whose son is involved in a hit-and-run that leads to a high-stakes game of deceit. The project hails from Peter Moffat (“The Night Of”) and Robert and Michelle King (“The Good Wife”). Filming begins later this year in New Orleans.

Finally, trailers are out for the second season of “The Chi” and the new drama “City on a Hill”.
