News & Interviews for Shameless: Season 9
That's a lot of pressure for a season of television, and based on the premiere I'm not sure the current trajectory of Shameless is going to be able to withstand it. I'd love to be proven wrong.
Shameless's ninth round ended in soulful fashion, sending Emmy Rossum off on a high note.
Even though it probably could have been better seeded throughout the season rather than rushed through in these last two episodes, the show does make Fiona's goodbye work.
Each character seems to go two steps forward and two steps back. Some might accuse this of being repetitive, but if you accept the series' nihilistic nature, it is just the show's perception of reality.
Clearly, the makeup crew has worked overtime to achieve Rossum's "rock bottom" look, and she's relishing a character arc that should allow her to leave the show in dramatic fashion.
It's not easy to keep things fresh after so long on the air, but Shameless Season 9 Episode 1 was filled with the signature humor, drama, and acting that we've come to expect from this Showtime hit.
Shameless has developed a specific rhythm. The humor is still strong and the twists hilarious, but in a recognizable style pleasing for the fans. Still, if this is your first glimpse of the Gallagher family, it won't be anything less than rowdy.
Once you can resign yourself to the fact that the situation is never going to get appreciably better for the Gallaghers, it becomes much easier to sit back, relax, and enjoy their exploits.
"Are You There, Shim? It's Me, Ian," maintains the series' signature comedic style and high-level family dysfunction while also providing a stark contrast to the show's first season.
Audience Reviews for Shameless: Season 9
Oct 30, 2020I used to love this show until its turned super left wing political in season 9.
Sep 22, 2020Make no mistake the second half of Shameless proved this is Jeremy Allen White's show now and while he's a fantastic in small doses, his arch can not carry a show. The writing has become lazy and frankly this should be it for a show that is out of steam. William H. Macy is just cashing a check and getting to be nuanced with a character that has been played out. Emma Rossum grew on me over the years and proved she could carry the ball when given. While I think White will have a better career long term, Rossum was this show and the writing has no clue where or how to continue and it was proven time and time again. There are some heartfelt moments and it's sad to see something you enjoy come to an end. Let's hope this show doesn't come back.
Aug 20, 2020Done! I am soooo done with Shameless. I could BARELY get through Season 9's politics and the same story line told over and over. What I could get through of Season 10 was NOTHING but ridiculous political nonsense. We get enough of mind numbing back and forth political BS every time we look at a screen. Some of us just want to binge on a dysfunctional family – to laugh, cry, and get angry – is that too much to as for? I'm done. Hopefully, they will not renew this show for another season. What a waste – this used to be my favorite show.
Jun 12, 2020This show got so repetitive I quit.
May 10, 2020Clearly repetitive, boring at its worst. But the beautiful details about the characters are always the great work of amazing screenwriters. I disagree that Shameless put too much politics in this season: Shameless IS the most political series I've ever seen since episode 1. Making a show about the struggle of poor people is political and it should be, it screams a truth to the world that is hard to digest. In the end, Shameless 9 is still Shameless.. only tired and repetitive, but the goodbye to Fiona Gallagher - after some painful episodes - works. It's still able to show the perspective of the writers and how they feel about these human beings they're depicting: they care about them, and in spite of anything distusting or wrong that the characters might have done, the screenplay watches them with a maternal look, silently observing the beauty of human beings.
Mar 11, 2020I really appreciate this show and how amazing the outcome of it is. Anytime I get a chance to promote I will. Season 8 was a great start on Fionas behalf and a real character builder. Then season 9 came along and showed her downfall and her elegance hitting rock bottom. The directors and team did an amazing job at her character. The should continue to do what they are doing.👍
Feb 01, 2020This season got way too political for my taste just like everything else coming out.
Jan 30, 2020This show used to be one of my favorites, and now it's unwatchable. Horrible, over-exaggerated SJW, political garbage is all that is left of this once brilliant show.
Jan 30, 2020Season 9 is bad , thanx for trying to shove this LGBQRTS or whatever down our throats. Not everyone wants to see same sex kissing etc for an hour. I used to love the show too now it`s ruined
Jan 16, 2020This was tough to watch.
