William H Macy's Frank Gallagher has some more boozing to do, so season 11 (which will also serve as the final season) of Shameless will officially roll cameras from next week after shutting down production due to coronavirus.
Deadline reports that the production start date is Tuesday, September 8, which means fans of the US version of black comedy will likely see the last batch of new episodes in mid-2021.
"Television shows are getting back up and running in Southern California," confirmed WarnerMedia Studios & Networks chief Ann Sarnoff.

Discussing the pandemic's interruptions on the industry, Sarnoff added: "It may not be as continual as it would have been if we had not had COVID, but I think every linear and streaming service has the same issue.
"But we're trying hard to get back into production, so we can have that stream of programming to get into HBO Max and all our partners, cable channels, and CW."
Meanwhile, former Fiona Gallagher actress Emmy Rossum reacted to the announcement of Shameless' 11th and final season with a message on social media back in January.
"Eleven seasons is ten more than most shows get! Bravo to an incredible run for a wonderful cast and crew," she tweeted.
