Shameless Renewed by Showtime for Ninth Season

Shameless renewed by Showtime for ninth season

Following the eighth season premiere of the series on Sunday, Showtime has renewed its hit series Shameless for a ninth season. The Season 8 premiere of the show delivered a 50 percent year-over-year growth for the series. Production on season nine of Shameless will begin in 2018.

“As challenging as it can be for any show simply to maintain viewers in the current TV landscape, Shameless is adding them in droves,” said David Nevins, President and CEO, Showtime Networks Inc. “But it’s no mystery why. The series’ reputation for rich and resonant characters and for deep – and deeply twisted – comedy has drawn not only faithful longtime viewers, but a steadily growing audience. And creatively, the season that kicked off this past Sunday is stronger than ever.”

“We are so grateful to Showtime for giving us the opportunity to continue making Shameless,” said series executive producer and showrunner John Wells. “It’s a labor of love (and a blast) for all of us.”

One of the network’s longest-running and most successful series ever, Shameless ranks as the network’s No. 1 comedy and attracts the youngest-skewing audience of any Showtime series. Shameless had its biggest season yet last fall with 6.5 million viewers tuning in each week. The series returned this past Sunday with its highest-rated premiere since its third season and up 50 percent versus the season seven premiere.

Shameless stars Oscar nominee and Emmy and SAG Award winner William H. Macy and Golden Globe nominee Emmy Rossum. Created by Paul Abbott, Shameless is produced by Bonanza Productions in association with John Wells Productions and Warner Bros. Television. Developed for American television by John Wells, the series is executive produced by Wells, Nancy M. Pimental and Sheila Callaghan.
