Shameless kicks off its sixth season later this month, but just like a Gallagher, you can beat the system — though in an up-and-up way — and see it before the premiere right here on Yahoo TV. Watch a TV-14 rated version above (meaning no boobs or buns, which there are a lot of in the first episode).
Things for those dysfunctional South Siders pick up soon after last season’s finale and, no spoiler alert necessary, they’re as screwed up as ever. Frank (William H. Macy) shows a softer side after Bianca’s death, but, worry not, he’s still a devious, dirty bird at heart. Pie-slinger Fiona (Emmy Rossum) gets a promotion — after all, she’s still sleeping with her boss (guest star Dermot Mulroney) — which doesn’t endear her to her co-workers. Debbie (Emma Kenney) remains pregnancy obsessed and it has positively heartbreaking ramifications. Our favorite scholar Lip (Jeremy Allen White) makes a really bad decision when he starts to care about his married lover (guest star Sasha Alexander). Cornrows connoisseur Carl (Ethan Cutkosky) gets sprung from the big house and capitalizes on his convicted felon status. And an on-his-meds Ian (Cameron Monaghan) comes face-to-face with Mickey (Noel Fisher), but it’s not the happiest of reunions.
Shameless begins its 12-episode run Jan. 10 at 9 p.m. on Showtime.
