Emmy Rossum ‘just learned’ that Shameless is ending from Twitter: ‘Bravo to an incredible run’

Emmy Rossum, the actress who played Fiona on nine seasons of the Showtime crowd favorite series Shameless, has revealed she learned of the show’s fate on Twitter. 

It was revealed earlier this week that the show is ending after the upcoming eleventh season and she stumbled across the news via an item she saw on her feed.

‘Just learned about SHAMELESS on Twitter! Eleven seasons is ten more than most shows get!’ the Day After Tomorrow actress, 33, tweeted. ‘Bravo to an incredible run for a wonderful cast and crew.’

Rossum, who is a Golden Globe nominee thanks to her role of Christine in 2004’s screen adaptation of The Phantom Of The Opera, left Shameless at the end of season nine to pursue other projects. 

On the series, she played the eldest daughter to (and primary caretaker of) William H. Macy’s rarely-sober Frank Gallagher, and was written off the show when her character came into some money and struck out on her own.

Since then, season 10 has followed the family months after Fiona’s departure, with youngest daughter Debbie (Emma Kenney) running the house as a tight ship as she manages her brothers and her daughter. Fan favorite Mickey (Noel Fischer) returned in season 10 as the cellmate and lover of middle son Ian (Cameron Monaghan) during his time in prison.

The announcement for the eleventh and last season comes less than two weeks before the tenth season is set to end on January 26.

Gary Levine, president of entertainment at Showtime Networks, broke the news Monday at the Winter Television Critics Association Press Tour.

‘Airing this summer, it will be one last hurrah for the Gallaghers and their unique blend of love and lechery,’ Levine said.

He added: ‘[Showrunner] John Wells and his gifted cast promise to take Shameless out for a bang, and knowing Gallaghers we all as we all do, that is no idle threat.’

As for whether Rossum would return, Levine previously told Deadline that it was ‘too early to say,’ but noted she would be ‘welcomed with open arms.’

‘If she surprises us, it would be lovely,’ he added.     

Shameless is based on the British drama of the same name, which also ended after 11 seasons. Creator Paul Abbot and showrunner Wells have been in negotiations with Warner Bros. for months to secure a final season with cast returning.

Wrapping things up: As for whether Rossum would return for the last season, it is so far 'too early to say,' but she would be 'welcomed with open arms'

The show is the longest-running original scripted series in Showtime Network’s history.

As for Rossum’s other projects, she recently shared a first-look snapshot as Angelyne, the famous Los Angeles billboard icon who has cruised around the city in a pink Cadillac for decades.
