uk tv 'Shameless' to end after Series 11 in 2013

1 post in this topic

Channel 4 has confirmed today that a final series of Shameless will air early next year.

14 new episodes of the drama are currently filming in Manchester, taking the total number of episodes to 139 by the finale.

Creator Paul Abbott commented: "Its 10th anniversary seems a fitting time to shut the book on Shameless. We've had an absolute ball making this stuff up for a living. We've given back in spades and got away with absolute murder, on behalf of such a fantastically outspoken audience."

The State of Play writer continued: ?But this is also the year my Dad died and he was, in abstract, my core inspiration for starting the whole Shameless party rolling, I wanted to make invisible people vivid. Closing the two eras in the same year feels very right. Now I'm off to build the next whatever-it-is."

Channel 4 Chief Creative Officer Jay Hunt added: "Shameless: ground-breaking when it launched and gob-smacking ever since, has over the years built a loyal following. We are in Paul Abbott's debt for bringing his defiantly dysfunctional band of characters to Channel 4 and I'm delighted to say we have other drama projects with Paul in the pipeline."
