Tv Season Info

In season nine of SHAMELESS, political fervor hits the South Side and the Gallaghers take justice into their own hands.

Fiona (Rossum) tries to build on her success with her apartment building and takes an expensive gamble hoping to catapult herself into the upper echelon. Lip (Jeremy Allen White) distracts himself from the challenges of sobriety by taking in Eddie's niece, Xan (Scarlet Spencer) Ian (Cameron Monaghan) faces the consequences of his crimes as the Gay Jesus movement takes a destructive turn. Debbie (Emma Kenney) fights for equal pay and combats harassment; and her efforts lead her to an unexpected realization. Carl (Ethan Cutkosky) sets his sights on West Point and prepares himself for cadet life. Liam (Christian Isaiah) must develop a new skillset to survive outside of his cushy private school walls. Kevin (Steve Howey) and V (Shanola Hampton) V juggle the demands of raising the twins with running the Alibi as they attempt to transform the bar into a socially conscious business.

Critic Reviews for Shameless: Season 9

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

"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.

Shameless is back, and it's back with a vengeance -- and that's not necessarily a good thing.

September 11, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

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.

September 17, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

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.

September 13, 2018 | Full Review…

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.

September 12, 2018 | Full Review…

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.
