Plot Synopsis

Frank Gallagher is full of Irish love and pride for his large brood, but that's about it. He's usually partying or passed out drunk, mom is AWOL, and the kids in this working-class family are basically raising themselves. Meanwhile, the electric bill is due, there's no money, and someone has to look after baby Liam. It's one day at a time for this crazy dysfunctional family, but their mutual love and support for each other always see them through. Meet the four oldest kids: Fiona, who, after being pursued by Steve, a rich player with a flashy car and a loose credit card, is now dividing her time between caring for the household and working at Worldwide Cup with her boss/boyfriend Mike Pratt; Lip, the smart one in the family, who once tutored neighbor Karen and got repayed in kind, and is now off to college, where he's struggling for the first time; Ian, who was grappling with homosexuality and being grappled by a co-worker and is now AWOL; Debbie, the young daughter, who was an adorable and innocent little girl, now descending into teenage angst. In Season 2, Fiona spent her nights working at a happening nightclub and her days keeping an eye on Debbie and Carl, as they ran a makeshift daycare center at the house. Meanwhile, brothers Lip and Ian were toying with the idea of college. Season 3 opened with Frank missing and trying to get back home by enlisting the help of Mexican coyotes and drug smugglers to get him across the border, while Fiona lost yet another job, then paid $1,000 to promote her own night club, and tried to get a job at a grocery store, where the manager used his entire staff for his personal pleasure. The third season premiered on Showtime on Sunday, January 13, 2013 at 9pm ET/PT. SHAMELESS returned for its 12-episode fourth season on Sunday, January 12, 2014 at 9pm ET/PT on Showtime. The new season picked up where Season 3 left off: with the Gallaghers braving another brutal Chicago winter and waiting on the medical fate of their flawed, permanently pickled patriarch, Frank. In the Season 4 finale Fiona gets out of jail, Frank starts feeling like his old self, Lip catches up on his bills, and Sheila fights for custody, clashing with Sammi. Showtime premiered the 12-episode fifth season of SHAMELESS on Sunday, January 11, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT. Season 5 finds the Gallaghers dealing with both the upside and downside of personal and urban renewal. As their neighborhood begins a move towards gentrifying, the Gallagher clan begins to reconcile their chaotic past in the hopes of building a better future. Dermot Mulroney, Steve Kazee and Sasha Alexander will guest star. In the season opener, "Milk of the Gods," it's summertime again in Chicago. Fiona balances her job at Patsy's Pies and a crush on her older boss, Sean, as Lip says goodbye to college and Amanda. He heads back home where he struggles to fit in with his old Southside friends. But he's not the only thing in the neighborhood that's changing though, realtors are buying up property and a new, trendy yoga studio has popped up. Meanwhile, Frank, still recovering from his liver transplant, is living at Sheila's and working on a secret project in her basement while Sheila works upstairs to get rid of a problematic Sammi and Chuckie. The 12-episode sixth season of SHAMELESS premiered on Sunday, January 10, 2016 at 9pm ET/PT on Showtime, immediately following an all-day marathon (9am-9pm) of encore episodes. Season 6 picks up shortly after last year's finale, as the Gallaghers prepare for yet another long Chicago winter. This season will see more than just the arctic Lake Michigan winds whipping through the South Side. Change is hard, and the Gallaghers are as surprised as anyone at how life is turning out for them. But the question remains, as they come into their own and find out who they are, is it really possible that the Gallaghers could grow apart for good? In the season opener, "I Only Miss Her When I'm Breathing," Frank's new found appreciation for life freaks everyone out; Fiona is determined to get Ian to take his meds; Debbie takes a pregnancy test. Showtime premieres Season 7 of SHAMELESS on Sunday, October 2, 2016 at 9pm ET/PT. When we last saw the Gallagher clan, they threw their narcissistic dad Frank off a bridge into the Chicago River after he showed up high at Fiona's wedding with a revelation that destroyed her happy ending. Now, in the season opener, "Hiraeth," Frank wakes from a coma to learn that he has not been missed; Debbie wants Franny to grow up wealthy; Lip considers rehab; Carl researches circumcision; Ian gets a bad feeling about Caleb's friend.
