Ah, the Gallaghers. TV’s most dysfunctional family returns to Showtime on Nov. 5, and we can’t wait to see what Season 8 has in store. Last season of Shameless was nothing short an emotional rollercoaster, with Monica’s death ushering in a new era for her just-remarried husband, Frank, and their kids. It seemed like the family was finally back on track—or, really, on track for the first time ever.
Fiona was successfully running two businesses and dipping her toes into Chicago’s real estate market. Lip was trying to get sober. Ian found his calling as an EMT. Debbie was pursuing her newfound passion for welding. Carl left his criminal ways in the past and embraced military school. And the youngest Gallagher, Liam, began attending a wealthy local private school. Everyone seemed to be on the right path—but this is Shameless, and we know that won’t last too long. Sooner or later, sh*t will hit the fan (and we’ll go out on a limb here and guess that it’ll be sooner). While there are sure to be plenty of curve balls heading our way when the show returns this Sunday at 9 p.m. ET, we're holding out hope for a few storylines in particular. Scroll down for eight things we’d love to see in season eight.
