Season 9 of Shameless returns from a break at 22h00 on January 29, 2019, on M-Net (channel 101).

The Golden Globe and Emmy Award winning escapades of the dysfunctional Gallagher family return, and this season political fervour has hit the South Side.

Oscar-nominated actor William H. Macy stars as Frank Gallagher, a single father of six who spends much of his free time drinking at bars. The Gallagher children -- led by oldest daughter Fiona (Emmy Rossum), who takes on much of the child-rearing responsibility due to her mother's absence -- manage to raise themselves in spite of Frank's lack of parenting and unusual parenting style when he does choose to act like a father. The drama is an adaptation of the BAFTA Award-winning British show of the same name.
