Story by Jack Foley

SHAMELESS, the US version of the original UK show, has been renewed for an 11th and final season by Showtime.

The renewal means that the John Wells drama, starring William H. Macy, will match the season length of the UK original.

In a statement, Wells said: “I’m unbelievably thankful for all of the years of support from [Showtime Entertainment president] Gary Levine and everyone at Showtime that’s allowed us to make Shameless.

“It’s been a fantastic experience and all of us in the cast and crew have had a wonderful time following the lives of the Gallagher family and friends. It’s been a pleasure!”

Shameless is currently coming towards the end of its 10th season, which marked its first without former leading lady Emmy Rossum.

The drama follows a dysfunctional family as they attempt to navigate life and love in Chicago’s South Side. It ranks as Showtime’s highest-rated scripted original as well as one of Netflix’s most-watched scripted originals.

The series also stars Jeremy Allen White, Cameron Monaghan, Noel Fisher, Emma Kenney, Shanola Hampton and Steve Howey.
