Shameless is an American comedy-drama television series developed by John Wells that debuted on Showtime on January 9, 2011. The series depicts the dysfunctional family of Frank Gallagher, a single father of six children.

While he spends his days drunk or in search of misadventures, his kids learn to take care of themselves. The show’s producers sought to distinguish it from previous American working-class shows by highlighting how Frank’s alcoholism affects his family. Macy as Vernon Francis “Frank” Gallagher, the father of six children. He is a deadbeat alcoholic who relies on schemes and stealing to survive. He is the biological father of Fiona, Lip, Debbie, Liam, Carl, and Sammi— but not Ian. Emmy Rossum as Fiona Gallagher, the eldest daughter of the Gallagher clan. She is intelligent, attractive, and resilient.

All of the responsibility of keeping her siblings safe becomes hers, and hence she dropped out of high school in her junior year. Steve Wilton and Jack, a young man who relentlessly pursues Fiona, going to great lengths to win her over, beginning with chasing the man who grabbed her purse in a nightclub on the night they met. Jeremy Allen White as Philip Ronan “Lip” Gallagher, the second Gallagher child. He was a straight-A student throughout high school and uses his intelligence in various money-making schemes. Cameron Monaghan as Ian Clayton Gallagher, the third of the Gallagher siblings.

He is Monica’s but not Frank’s biological child. He participates in Army JROTC at school, and is gay, the latter fact he withholds from some of the family. Still under age, he enlists in the Army under his brother Lip’s identity. Emma Kenney as Deborah “Debbie” Gallagher, the fourth Gallagher child.

Debs” is precocious, intent on making a positive impression, willing to cover for others. She is very mature in some ways and therefore has trouble making friends with people her own age. Ethan Cutkosky as Carl Francis Gallagher, the second-youngest Gallagher child who shares a room with older brothers Lip and Ian, who try to keep their more-adult interests from him. Carl is often in trouble at school for attacking other students and not obeying the rules. Brennan Kane Johnson and Blake Alexander Johnson, then later Brenden Sims and Brandon Sims, as Liam Gallagher, the youngest of the Gallagher children.

He is black, despite having two white parents, due to a dominant black gene the Gallaghers acquired from Frank’s grandmother. He is delayed in verbal and emotional growth, and the whole family dotes on him. Always willing and able to lend a hand, Veronica pursued a medical career until she was fired from the hospital for stealing medical supplies. Kevin is the bartender and owner of the Alibi Room and the Gallaghers’ neighbor and friend. He lives with and is in a happy relationship with Veronica, though he is technically married to another woman who previously left him. Sheila is an agoraphobic germophobe, Karen’s mother, and Eddie’s widow.
