Summary and storyline
Shameless is a widely critically acclaimed and multiple award-winning American dramedy television show from the production companies Bonanza Productions, John Wells Productions, Warner Bros. Television and Sterling Films, which is at the moment airing its sixth season on the Showtime network in the United States. The series was created by Paul Abbott (State of Play, Hit & Miss). This American TV show is a remake of the award-winning British series of the same name that was broadcast from 2004 to 2013. The American version of Shameless was originally developed by HBO in 2009 but by October 2009 it moved to Showtime.
Shameless is set in Chicago's Canaryville neighborhood on the South Side, although it is filmed mostly in Burbank, with only the exterior scenes filmed in Chicago. The storyline revolves around a dysfunctional family of Frank Gallagher (William H. Macy), a single father of six children. Since he is drunk most of the time, his children have to take care of themselves. Shameless also stars Emmy Rossum, Jeremy Allen White, Emma Kenney, Joan Cusack, Justin Chatwin, Shanola Hampton and others.
Critical acclaim and early renewal
Season 6 of Shameless premiered in the US on Showtime on Sunday, January 10, 2016 and it will contain twelve episodes. Just like it happened last year, the day after the premiere episode was aired, the network officially announced the renewal of the dramedy series for another round. A seventh chapter of the show will also have twelve episodes which are slated to hit the small screen in the beginning of 2017. The renewal decision was clearly expected, because not only the show is the network’s highest-rated original scripted series, but its most recent premiere episode has become the best performing premiere for the series since its launch in 2009.

UPDATED June 4, 2016: The Showtime has finally announced the premiere dates for its mega popular Sunday drama lineup, including The Affair and Masters of Sex. A highly-anticipated seventh chapter of the critically-praised dramedy series Shameless is scheduled to hit the small screen in the US on Sunday, October 2, 2016 at 9pm ET/PT.
