Showtime’s hit comedy-drama “Shameless” is set to return in what has been described as the most shameless season so far according to a January 5, 2016, report from Polygon.
The series is set to begin airing on Sunday, January 10 at 9 p.m. on Showtime, but for die-hard fans who cannot wait until then for the first episode of “Shameless” season 6 can be viewed early on Showtime Anytime now. Episode one, entitled, “I Only Miss Her When I’m Breathing” finds the Gallaghers picking right up where they left off in season 5 with Frank suffering major depression over the loss of his “soulmate” Bianca.
Frank is suffering such a loss that he visits Bianca’s grave constantly, even making it a point to sleep on the ground nightly with Bianca’s clothes to feel closer to her. Things take a strange turn when Frank imagines having sex with her and begins to pleasure himself on her grave before being caught by the cemetery groundskeeper. Many fans are a bit shocked by this bizarre turn of events calling it way too out there even for the extremely dysfunctional Gallagher family. Hard to believe that ” Shameless” could continue to shock more from season to season but so far Showtime has not disappointed.
As for the rest of the family, Fiona, who, has separated from her new husband Gus is carrying on a mad affair with her boss, Sean Pierce (Dermot Mulroney.) Fiona continues to have her hands full with Debs who tells her she is pregnant with her teenage boyfriend’s baby forcing her to go to the clinic to find out for sure. Things get hairy for the young couple from then on.
Lip continues to carry on his college affair with his professor. Ian has decided that he wants to steer clear of Mickey and change that part of his life by not wanting to visit him in prison, which does not last long. Last but not least Carl returns home from juvie being released early on (hard to believe) good behavior. But Carl is a completely different kid now that he has done hard time, and Fi has a hunch that Carl could be headed straight for more trouble as he begins running with the same crowd and drug dealers that sent him down the wrong path to begin with.
