A popular series on Showtime, Shameless has already been renewed for a seventh season. If you’d like to watch catch up, you can try to win the complete sixth season set on DVD. In addition to the 12 episodes, the set includes Running The Table: A Shameless Conversation (featurette), Shamelessly Shanola (featurette), and deleted scenes.
Here’s the DVD set’s official description:
Scrappy, stubborn and strong, the Gallaghers are tested by changing times but season six finds them older, wiser and better at playing the system. Accustomed to their natural state of chaos, the Gallaghers are as surprised as anyone at how life is turning out for them. But as they come into their own and find out who they really are, is it really possible that they might grow apart for good?
During season six of Shameless, Frank (William H. Macy) continues to grieve the loss of Bianca, while his newfound appreciation for life is freaking everyone out. Debbie (Emma Kenney) has decisions to make about her pregnancy while Fiona (Emmy Rossum) learns that she too, is expecting. Lip (Jeremy Allen White) is still in a dangerous relationship with one of his college professors. Ian (Cameron Monaghan) is adjusting to taking his meds and finding a new purpose in life. Carl (Ethan Cutkosky) is released early after serving time in juvenile detention. And just when they think it couldn’t get any worse, the Gallagher clan faces the possibility of losing their home when they are served with an eviction notice.
“Shameless continues to deliver with engaging storylines and superb acting performances that evolve from season to season. Viewers will find season six thoroughly entertaining from beginning to end,” said Rosemary Markson, WBHE Senior Vice President, TV Marketing. She added, “We’re delighted to bring another exceptional season of this outstanding series to DVD and Blu-ray™.”
Based on the long-running, award-winning British series, Shameless was adapted for American television by John Wells and original UK series creator Paul Abbott (State of Play) and made its U.S. debut on Showtime January 9, 2011. Showtime’s youngest-skewing series, Shameless developed a loyal fan base during the first season, and averaged 2.6 million viewers each episode during its sixth season. The series is Showtime’s #1 series across all key Adult demos (out of 9 series). Shameless season six is up +8% in Total Viewers from season five.**
The sixth season of Shameless was executive produced by John Wells, Christopher Chulack, Nancy M. Pimental, Davey Holmes, Krista Vernoff, Etan Frankel and Andrew Stearn. Produced by Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with John Wells Productions and Warner Bros. Television, the series stars William H. Macy, Emmy Rossum, Jeremy Allen White, Ethan Cutkosky (Fred Claus), Shanola Hampton (You Again), Steve Howey (Reba), Emma Kenney (The New Girl in Town) and Cameron Monaghan (The Giver, Vampire Academy).
