Daddy's dying...and nobody cares?
That's essentially where we start season 4 of the hit series Shameless, which returns this Sunday on Showtime.
As we learned in the Shameless Season 3 finale, boozy patriarch Frank Gallagher (William H. Macy) needs a new liver and since he's been less a role model for fatherhood, it's no surprise that most of his children don't rush to his side to help.
What lengths he takes to keep throwing back a good drink will be a big part of the new season, while the Gallagher kids deal with their own dramas and often-comedic situations.
TV Fanatic recently stopped by the Hollywood set to get a peek at Season 4 with stars Emmy Rossum (Fiona), Jeremy Allen White (Lip), Emma Kenney (Debbie) and Shanola Hampton (Veronica) to find out what each of them is up to and how Frank's illness does or doesn't affect them.
Shameless Season 4 Sundays at 9 p.m. on Showtime.
