The biggest question for most fans of Showtime’s Shameless is whether Noel Fisher’s Mickey will return next year. Rumors have suggested that after Mickey and Cameron Monaghan’s Ian broke up at the end of last season over Ian’s depression that Mickey would be leaving the series.
As the season six teaser shows, however, Mickey will be back. How much remains a mystery, and based on his split second screentime in the teaser, I wouldn’t get your hopes up.
Meanwhile, Cameron Monaghan has also addressed Mickey’s return, telling TVLine: “”I don’t think you’ll wait long to see a really nice scene that he has. I won’t say what it is, but it’s a really nice scene.”
That’s “scene,” in the singular, suggesting that maybe Noel Fisher won’t be involved in next season beyond that scene, which will likely take place in prison, based on the teaser.
That’s disappointing. Frank masturbating on Bianca’s grave, however, is just par for the course for Shameless.
The series is set to return in January.
