Season seven of Shameless just premiered last night, but will it be the last season? Recently, executive producer Nancy Pimental spoke with TVLine about the future of the Showtime series.
The comic drama follows the ups and downs of a Southside Chicago family. The cast includes Emmy Rossum, William H. Macy, Jeremy Allen White, Cameron Monaghan, Emma Kenney, and Steve Howey.
In the interview, Pimental said the staff has discussed ending the series after season eight:
We talk about it. We’ve certainly mentioned doing at least Season 8. Then we also say, “Look, it’s a family, and the kids are growing. It could go on forever.” The Shameless in England, I don’t even know if it’s still going on, but they went for many seasons. When you have this many characters in a family where the dynamics are changing, people are growing, it could go on indefinitely. So we’ve talked about all options, [including] wrapping it up in a year or two. Or do we have more stories in us, because we have so many characters?”
What do you think? Do you watch Shameless? Do you think the show should end soon?
I have watched Shameless thru season 8. About 6 times now. I’m totally addicted. At least give us 2 more season’s, if not 20. Everyone I know watches faithfully. And all love and can identify with these talented character’s. Keep them coming please!
Shameless is the epitome of what a sitcom should aspire to be. It’s ever-changing, has great story lines, and involves a deeply evolving cast of characters the audience cares about. Shameless fans like myself look forward to Sunday nights so we can rejoin our favorite family on their rode to redemption. More seasons please! As many as you can write!
Please give us at least one more season. I’d like to see a few more, but I’ll settle for Season 8 to tie things up. I adore Shameless and so does my brother – we talk about it all the time!
Please don’t end the series yet. It is so good and it’s all I ever watch. It really keeps me going and I look forward to Sunday to watch it. I think there should of been more episodes in season seven. At least do one more season. Session eight. There is so much more you guys can do as far as stories go.
MORE seasons – I would love it to go on forever & ever. The possibilities are ENDLESS…..and I love ALL these characters. I SO look forward to more…
