Are you looking for Shameless season 8 release date? This article has the most up-to-date info on the status of Shameless season 8.
Can fans of the series Shameless wait for the eighth season? Did the changing of airtime effect on the rating?
We’ve got used that the premiere of the new season of Shameless has always been appointed to the beginning of the year, but the start of the seventh season became a kind of exception to the rule. Indeed, the representatives of the Showtime channel have decided to change the broadcast time of the show and this year season debuted a few months earlier.
There were about 1.25 million viewers at the TV screens, which 20% less than it was during the broadcast of the final episode of the sixth season. The right holders didn’t like it very much, because they did not expect that the show would lose its fans in 2016. The next episodes proved that fans remain loyal to the project, because their number had increased to 1.6 million people.
So, according to the experts, this gives rise to right holders to think about the renewal of the series Shameless for the 8th season, but the final decision on this matter should be announced after the finale of the current season.
