Frank Becomes ‘St. Francis’ in First ‘Shameless’ Season 8 Trailer
Gone are the days of getting two Shameless seasons a year, but the near-miss of Season 8 will more than make up for it. Check out the first trailer for Season 8, as Frank finds religion in the wake of [SPOILER]‘s death, and Fiona takes on a malignant new gig.
Ahead of its November 5 return, Shameless released a first trailer and poster for the eighth season that nearly didn’t happen in the wake of Emmy Rossum’s pay disparity with co-star William H. Macy. All that resolved; Season 8 will see Fiona as a new landlord while Frank finds religion after Monica’s death, and it seems her buried meth will come back to haunt them all.
Check out the poster:
Not only that, but it looks like breast cancer might play a certain part in the season, given one of Kevin’s shirts, and a later shot of him examining Fiona. Elsewise, Shameless Season 8 will feature Richard Flood as Ford, a freelance war photographer who meets Fiona, while Gossip Girl alum Jessica Szohr will play Nessa, one of Fiona’s tenants and a lesbian with whom she develops a strong friendship.
We’ll likely see further previews in October, so stay tuned for the latest on Shameless Season 8 and beyond.
