From Emmy®-winning executive producer John Wells (ER, The West Wing) and Warner Bros. Television, Shameless stars Oscar®-nominated actor William H. Macy (Fargo, Door to Door) as Frank Gallagher, the outspoken, alcoholic, single father of six clever and resourceful kids from Chicago’s South Side. Shameless: The Complete Sixth Season will retail for $39.99 for the Blu-ray™ and $29.98 SRP for the standard DVD edition.
Shameless: The Complete Sixth Season will also be available to own on Digital HD via purchase from digital retailers on June 20, 2016.
Scrappy, stubborn and strong, the Gallaghers are tested by changing times but season six finds them older, wiser and better at playing the system. Accustomed to their natural state of chaos, the Gallaghers are as surprised as anyone at how life is turning out for them. But as they come into their own and find out who they really are, is it really possible that they might grow apart for good?
During season six of Shameless, Frank (William H. Macy) continues to grieve the loss of Bianca, while his newfound appreciation for life is freaking everyone out. Debbie (Emma Kenney) has decisions to make about her pregnancy while Fiona (Emmy Rossum) learns that she too, is expecting. Lip (Jeremy Allen White) is still in a dangerous relationship with one of his college professors. Ian (Cameron Monaghan) is adjusting to taking his meds and finding a new purpose in life. Carl (Ethan Cutkosky) is released early after serving time in juvenile detention. And just when they think it couldn’t get any worse, the Gallagher clan faces the possibility of losing their home when they are served with an eviction notice.
“Shameless continues to deliver with engaging storylines and superb acting performances that evolve from season to season. Viewers will find season six thoroughly entertaining from beginning to end,” said Rosemary Markson, WBHE Senior Vice President, TV Marketing. She added, “We’re delighted to bring another exceptional season of this outstanding series to DVD and Blu-ray™.”
Based on the long-running, award-winning British series, Shameless was adapted for American television by John Wells and original UK series creator Paul Abbott (State of Play) and made its U.S. debut on Showtime January 9, 2011. Showtime’s youngest-skewing series, Shameless developed a loyal fan base during the first season, and averaged 2.6 million viewers each episode during its sixth season. The series is Showtime’s #1 series across all key Adult demos (out of 9 series). Shameless season six is up +8% in Total Viewers from season five.**
