Shameless: Series 8 - Preview

Shameless: Series 8

Preview by Jack Foley

CHANNEL 4’s longest running, multi award-winning series Shameless is back with the January 9, 2012 DVD box-set release of Series 8!

This series of the offbeat drama includes 22 episodes, and features the introduction of yet another dysfunctional family, the Powells, and also sees Shameless celebrating its 100th episode!

Shameless: Series 8 & Series 1-8 are available on DVD from January 9, 2012.

Shameless: Series 8 kicks off with a Chatsworth Estate party, and it’s not just any party – it’s Frank’s (David Threlfall) stag night! He’s getting married to the love of his life, his romantic narcoleptic librarian third bride-to-be, Libby (Pauline McLynn).

Then, as the clock strikes midnight, Frank disappears. The mystery of Frank’s whereabouts is a veritable magical mystery tour into the previously unexplored outer-limits of Frank’s drink and drug-addled mind.

With Frank missing, a dark cloud spoils the party spirit when a previous Mrs Gallagher, Monica (Annabelle Apsion) returns to lay claim on her family….

Meanwhile, at the Maguires, Mimi (Tina Malone) is back in the nest with her surprise new baby Cilla, with whom Micky (Ciaran Griffiths) discovers his talent as a surrogate father – but the question remains, who’s the Daddy?

Nestled in between the Gallaghers and the Maguires is a new family: home-brewing fun and firey housewife Avril Powell (Karen Bryson) and mild-mannered, until he’s had a drink, trainee teacher Jackson Powell (Emmanue Ighodaro), plus their chronically, irretrievably thick, but gorgeous teenage daughter Letitia (Kira Martin).

But as the truth behind Frank’s disappearance is revealed the question still remains, will he get back in time for his nuptials or will Libby be left at the altar?

Ride the emotional rollercoaster and be surprised, shocked and entertained by the consistently delivering drama that is Shameless: Series 8 – available on DVD from January 9, 2012.

The new series of Shameless: Series 9 airs at 10pm on Tuesdays from January 10, 2012 on Channel 4.
