If you are looking for a new episode of Shameless Season 11… You won’t find it this weekend. Now, we assume that is probably why some of you are here. Sunday night arrives. (Or Saturday night for those with Showtime). You login to your Showtime account (or turn on the TV). And, you wait. Much to your surprise a new episode of Shameless does not show up. You refresh a few times, turn your device on and off, and you probably check to see what time it is. Then, we assume you’ll venture to the nearest TV Guide. Eventually you will run to Google. Why isn’t a new episode of Shameless on this weekend (January 17, 2021)? And, that… That is how you ended up here.
A new episode of Shameless will not be on this weekend (January 17, 2021)
Unfortunately, you are not mistaken or overlooking it. A new episode of Shameless will not be on this weekend. Many assume the network is trying to drag the final season of the hit series on for as long as possible. This, however, is not the only reason. We know Showtime ordered a companion series. Hall of Shame. Likewise, we reported this companion season was NOT well received by fans of the show. Many admit they would have preferred more episodes of Shameless as opposed to this series.
That being said, the network is not airing new episodes of Hall of Shame and Shameless Season 11 in the same weekend. They are alternating.
The virus also delayed production
Likewise, we know the virus caused a delay in the production of Season 11. The crew should have returned to work this week. This was following the holiday break. But, the studio shut everything down. For safety, they wanted a cast and crew quarantine following the holidays. So, we can also assume stretching out the new episodes is about staying on schedule.
Unfortunately, not only will there not be a new episode of Shameless this weekend… There also won’t be a new episode next weekend either. January 31, 2021 is when fans will see Season 11, Episode 5.
We can also confirm the network, again, will delay airing Episode 6 of Season 11 as well. The episode titled “Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good….Eh, Screw It” airs on February 14th.
Unsurprisingly, fans are not exactly pleased with the gap schedule. We can only assume this displeasure will grow if Episode 5 or 6 ends on a cliffhanger of any sort.
