Shameless Series Finale Trailer: Did Frank Survive?

at .

It's been a long time coming, but the series finale of Shameless is almost here.

Shameless Season 11 Episode 12 will wrap the Showtime series up for good, but the clip confirms Frank didn't die at the end of Shameless Season 11 Episode 11 as teased.

You would think the network would want to keep an element of mystery heading into the conclusion, but Frank is very much alive in this clip.

It's certainly different to spoil such a development, but maybe it means there are much bigger things in store for the series ender.

If you watch Shameless online, you know the characters have all been gearing up to make some big life changes, so this episode will be the jumping-off point for them.

Kev and V's move to Kentucky seems like a done deal, leading everyone to assemble at the Alibi Room to say goodbye with a half-off deal for all of their most loyal customers.

It does seem very low-key, especially for a show that's been on the air for a little over a decade, but could it all still be satisfying in the end?

Here's the official logline:

Ian and Mickey shop for furniture for their new place and Kev and V look for a buyer for the Alibi.

While Lip settles for a new job, Carl finally finds his calling in a new role on the police force. Debbie plunges into a treacherous world when she meets someone new. Frank comes to terms with his own mortality.

There is no mention of any returning characters, so, likely, Emmy Rossum will not be coming back as Fiona, at least in the flesh.

Fiona's storyline wrapped with Shameless Season 9, but after everything that's happened to the family, it's strange we haven't witnessed any phonecalls from her.

Might she pop up in a surprise cameo? Yes, but it will probably be via Zoom, and the show will explain it as the COVID-19 pandemic.

There could be some surprises along the way, but we'll need to tune in to the finale when it airs to see how it all plays out.

Are you ready to say goodbye?

Shameless Quotes

I'm not gonna ask your forgiveness because you bunch didn't do s--- for me, so let's just call it a draw. I know some of ya think ya hate my guts, and truth be told I never liked any of you much either. But we're all Gallaghers. My only advice is to stop worrying so damn much. You're supposed to ask people on their death bed if they wish they'd worked more or spent more time with their family. [Laughs] Me, hell, I wish I'd partied more. Nobody ever said our neighborhood was the Garden of Eden but it's been a good home to us, to me, and you kids. I'm proud of all of you, because every single one of you reminds me a little bit of me, Lip, you're smart as a whip, you just can't seem to get out of your own way. You'll figure it out. Ian, industrious, incredible work ethic, not a clue where you got that from — got the mental illness from your mother. The only way I can understand how you ended up marrying a Milkovich. Carl, I never could figure you out. Can't believe you betrayed the family and became a cop. I'm hoping you're already on the take. Debbie, you remind me of your mother, and not in a good way. Good luck in life, you're gonna need it. Liam, you're the apple of my eye, you handsome devil. Everybody says you look just like me. Oh, Kev, Veronica, you're overrated as friends, always sticking your noses in my family's business where they don't belong. You're moving, I say good riddance. And me, Frank Gallagher, father, teacher, mentor, captain of our little ship. People say you can't drink your troubles away, I say you're just not drinking enough. I guess that's it. Not much left to say really. Except, time's precious, don't f---ing waste it. Have a good time. I sure as hell did.


Steve: Lip will bring you later, you go, come Lip.
Estefania: Ah yes, I come on Lip.
Steve: With! You come with, Lip!
