The seventh season of “Shameless” doesn’t officially begin for another week, but if there’s one thing the binge-watching era has taught us, it’s that waiting is for the birds. As such, Showtime has made the premiere episode free to watch in its entirety on YouTube. Watch it below.
A remake of the British series of the same name, “Shameless” first premiered in early 2011 and has aired 72 episodes across its first six seasons. William H. Macy stars as Frank Gallagher, an alcoholic single father of six. Emmy Rossum, Ethan Cutkosky, Shanola Hampton, Steve Howey and Emma Kenney all co-star in the Chicago-set dramedy.
Macy won a Screen Actors Guild Award for his performance last year and has also been nominated at the Emmys and Golden Globes; Joan Cusack, in a well-received guest performance, received an Emmy and was likewise nominated for several other awards. Showtime will air the Season 7 premiere next Sunday, October 2.
