Join one of television’s most irreverent families, the Gallaghers, when Warner Bros. Home Entertainment releases another season of the hit Showtime series, “Shameless”. “Shameless: The Complete Eighth Season” brings our favorite clan together for another scandalous season featuring 12 highly entertaining episodes, plus bonus content, including two new featurettes and deleted scenes. From Emmy-winning executive producer John Wells (“ER”, “The West Wing”) and Warner Bros. Television, “Shameless” stars Oscar-nominated actor William H. Macy (“Fargo”, “Door to Door”) as Frank Gallagher, the outspoken, alcoholic, single father of six industrious and independent kids from Chicago’s South Side.
The Gallaghers are finally on an upswing in season eight! Frank (William H. Macy, three-time Screen Actors Guild Award winner for his role on “Shameless”), tries to become a contributing member of society. Fiona (Emmy Rossum) finds success as a landlord. Lip (Jeremy Allen White) struggles to stay sober while Ian (Cameron Monaghan) takes up a cause. Debbie (Emma Kenney) tries life as a single working mom, while Carl (Ethan Cutkosky) gets creative finding tuition money after losing his military school scholarship. Meanwhile, Kev (Steve Howey) and V (Shanola Hampton) wrestle with Svetlana (Isidora Goreshter) at The Alibi.
“Since its debut, “Shameless” has delighted viewers with its endearing characters, captivating storylines and powerful acting performances. For the past eight years, television audiences have watched the Gallagher kids grow up and deal with tough life situations in their own remarkable, ingenious ways. Fans have grown to love the Gallagher clan and have remained loyal and devoted viewers,” said Rosemary Markson, WBHE Senior Vice President, TV Marketing. She added, “We’re pleased to bring the eighth season of this outstanding series to consumers.”

Season eight premiered to over 3 million total viewers. “Shameless” is Showtime’s #1 series across all key Adult Demos (out of 9 series).
