Showtime announced they will renew their hit series “Shameless” for a second season premiering in 2012.  “Shameless” stars William H. Macy and Emmy Rossum in a family drama about a dysfunctional family who manages to make it from one week to the next.  Though they may be unorthodox, they have an undying love for each other and no matter what comes their way; they will get through it together.


Shameless premiered on January 9, 2011 and became Showtime’s best performing new series ever.   John Wells serves as executive producer and has credits such as “Southland,” “The West Wing,” and “ER” under his belt.  Speaking about the second season he stated, “We're delighted that our wonderful partners at SHOWTIME are giving us the opportunity to make additional episodes of SHAMELESS.  We're having an unbelievably good time making the show and look forward to bringing more of the humor, pathos, and wild sexuality of the dysfunctional Gallagher family to a shocked American audience.”


“Shameless” averaged approximately 4million viewers per week placing it second to Dexter which averages 5.2 million per week.  You may watch a video interview with John Wells where he discusses the season finale of “Shameless” as well as the first full episode in the video below.  “Shameless” is for mature audiences and you must enter your date of birth in order to view the episode.
