The third season of Showtime’s drama series Shameless will receive its UK premiere on More4 on Sunday January 12th at 11:05pm, it has been announced.
Based on Channel 4′s series of the same name, Shameless (dubbed Shameless US by Channel 4 to diferentiate it from the original) was developed for US television by John Wells and follows the daily lives of the members of the blue collar Gallagher family who live in the South Side of Chicago. The working class family struggles to make ends meet while Frank, the patriach of the Gallagher clan, can usually be found at the local bar spending what little money they have. The drama series, which has already been renewed for a fourth season, stars William H. Macy, Emmy Rossum, Justin Chatwin, Jeremy Allen White, Cameron Monaghan, Steve Howey, Emma Kenney, Joan Cusack, Ethan Cutkosky, Shanola Hampton and Laura Slade Wiggins. In the show’s third season, which picks up several months after the last season ended, the Gallaghers are each seeking their own unique version of the “American Dream.” Jimmy (Justin Chatwin) has moved into the Gallagher home, and Fiona (Emmy Rossum) soon realizes that a GED will only get her so far and that a long-term relationship with Jimmy isn’t as fulfilling as she expected. Meanwhile, Frank (William H. Macy) reappears south of the border with no idea as to how he got there.
