Showtime chief David Nevins feels no guilt in renewing Shameless for Season 9, but just how long will the comedy-drama survive?
Speaking at today’s TCA, Nevins suggested Shameless will hang around for Season 10, 11 and beyond, so long as it continues its creative high (and remains cost effective), per EW:
“I don’t know what the end point of that show is. It’s having its strongest year ever by a long shot. It’s up significantly over last year, so it has grown steadily. A lot of people feel like this was one of its best creative years, too, so as long as it keeps doing that, I’m happy to have them for as long as possible. Shows that show the ability to renew themselves get to stay — if I can afford them.”
With no end date set for Shameless, how many seasons do you want the Gallaghers to stick around?
