Shameless season 11 is in production at the moment. The series wasn't able to kick off filming immediately due to the current global health crisis. Now, the cast and crew are currently working to deliver more stories for the upcoming installment, which serves as the final one for the show.
Recently, Showtime confirmed that Shameless season 11 is coming on Sunday, December 6. We're going to see the Gallagher family back in action for the final batch of episodes. Also, this is the second season without Emmy Rossum, who played Fiona Gallagher.
It remains to be seen whether or not Rossum is coming back to reprise her role for one last time. But, since this is the final installment, it only makes sense the series brings back some notable characters in the past before it officially concludes.
While there's uncertainty about that, Showtime shared more details about what viewers can expect in Shameless season 11. The series takes on a very timely issue: the current global health crisis. Most of the characters will be dealing with the pandemic, along with other problems.
The synopsis notes that the final installment sees the Gallaghers and the South Side at a crossroads. The changes are caused by the current global health crisis, gentrification, as well as aging to reconcile. At the same time, Frank Gallagher (William H. Macy) needs to resolve some of his personal issues.
Shameless season 11 sees Frank confronting his own mortality and family ties during his alcoholic and drug-induced twilight years. Lip Gallagher (Jeremy Allen White), on the other hand, is struggling with the prospect of becoming the new patriarch of the family.
Mickey Milkovich (Noel Fisher) and Ian Gallagher (Cameron Monaghan) need to figure out the rules and responsibilities of being in a committed relationship now that they are married. Deb Gallagher (Emma Kenney) will embrace her individuality, as well as single motherhood.
As for Carl Gallagher (Ethan Cutkosky), he finds an unlikely new career within law enforcement. Lastly, Kevin Ball (Steve Howey) and Veronica Fisher (Shanola Hampton) couldn't decide whether or not the life on the South Side is really worth fighting for.
Staying at the South Side is one of the major questions for a lot of characters. There could be other opportunities elsewhere, with most of them reconsidering what they want in their life. Since Shameles season 11 is the last one for the series, we have to be prepared for unexpected twists and turns.
