Goodbye, Gallaghers. If you’ve been following the Gallagher family for the past decade, you may want to know how to watch Shameless online for free to catch the end of the 11-season series.
Shameless, which is an adaptation of the British TV series of the same name, premiered on Showtime in January 2011. The show—which revolved the Gallaghers, a dysfunctional family in the south side of Chicago—ran for 11 seasons until its series finale on April 11, 2021. Since its premiere, Shameless, which is Showtime’s longest-running original scripted series, has been nominated for 15 Emmy awards, including three times in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series category for William H. Macy, who played Gallagher patriarch Frank. The show has won four awards.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly in March 2021, Ethan Cutosky, who played Carl, talked about what Shameless meant to him. “Everything that I wanted to do and that I’m doing right now is because of Shameless,” he said. “It has given me a place to stand and a voice to be able to put out things that I want to put out. So it’s a reflection every day, and now seeing how much I’ve grown. Shameless is always going to be our baby.
