In case you’d forgotten, the Shameless season 7 premiere had been bumped up this year from its usual January date to October 2nd. For those of us with short attention spans and poor memories, this is an exciting surprise reminder. Showtime just released their first trailer for the new season, and as expected, the Gallaghers’ lives are as insane as ever.
The new season starts a month after the last one ended, with Frank having spent a month in the hospital following being pulled from the river after his latest round of despicableness. From the trailer, it looks like once again, his kids will be trying to keep him out of their house, and once again, Frank proves to have the resilience (and paternal abilities) of a cockroach.
As for the other Gallaghers, Fiona seems to be walking the line between picking up the pieces and total denial. Lip is sinking farther into his own Frankness, and Debbie is (still) really bad at crime.
The season also got a new poster, giving us ultimate Gallagher patriotism.
