Why Is ‘Shameless’ Not On This Week?

Netflix, News, Scripted, Shameless

Those preparing to rush to the Showtime streaming service at midnight tonight for a new episode of Shameless are in for a surprise. It will not be there. Unfortunately, Season 10 of Shameless was just 12 episodes long. The Season Finale aired last week.

Why is a new episode of Shameless not airing tomorrow?

Technically, Showtime had the Season Finale of Shameless worked into their schedule this weekend. It aired today. And, it airs again tomorrow. Most Shameless fans, however, saw the episode last week. More over, the episode has been available in the streaming library for a week now as well.

According to recent chatter on Shameless fan pages, some viewers were not aware last week’s episode was the Season Finale. Many expressed shock and horror when they realized Episode 12 was the final episode of the season.

“Wait what last week was the season finale ??? 😩” One follower cried. 

Another chimed in: “Noooo it can’t be 😭”

How many episodes have previous seasons of the series been?

Technically, anyone who has watched all 10 seasons of Shameless should not have found this being the Season Finale to be too surprising. A quick scroll through past seasons of the series reveals most are 12 episodes in length. While Season 9 was a little longer at 14 episodes… This was also the season the cast said goodbye to Emmy Rossum. So, it made sense for writers to stretch the series out a few more episodes to properly say goodbye.

The real reason fans might have found the season ending so soon to be surprising is because the series didn’t take a break. In the past, Shameless has taken a break over the holiday or skipped a week so it did not air against the Superbowl. For Season 10, however, Shameless aired all 12 episodes without a break. So, it certainly seemed a little faster then what fans experienced in the past.

How can fans watch Season 10 of Shameless?

Technically, the Season Finale and the other 11 episodes can be viewed via the Showtime streaming service. The big question many have at this point is when will Season 10 be available on Netflix?

Netflix is credited as one of the reasons Shameless survived so many seasons. The series picked up a significant amount of fans when Showtime started dropping seasons of the show into the Netflix streaming library.

As we mentioned previously, it is way too early to tell when Shameless Season 10 might be available on Netflix. Based on patterns, however, we suspect it will drop between the months of July and August.
