‘Shameless’ Sneak Peek: Two’s Company, Three’s a Thrupple

Boy meets girl… and then another girl. Only on Shameless!

The outrageous Showtime drama explores new territory, again, in Season 7 with the relationship between Kevin (Steve Howey), Veronica (Shanola Hampton), and Svetlana (Isidora Goreshter). Or as they call it — the “thrupple.”

As Hampton explains in this exclusive video, “They’re doing breakfast together, taking care of the kids together, running the bar together.”

And of course, other, R-rated activities!

“Family meeting? Is that what we’re calling sex now?” Kevin asks in a clip from the show.

It all started because Svetlana needed to marry for a green card (after her previous marriage to Mickey ended when he went to prison). Kevin was still married to his ex-wife, so V stepped in to save their bartender/nanny. But as the two women got to know each other better, feelings began to develop, much to Kevin’s surprise. But now, he’s completely on board, and the trio is tight-knit when the season begins.

“But it is Shameless, so it all starts off all rosy until s–t hits the fan!” Hampton warns.

Shameless Season 7 premieres Sunday, Oct. 2 at 9 p.m. on Showtime.
