This new trailer’s tagline — “Family with a nuclear option” — is as good a way as any to describe the Gallaghers of Shameless. Showtime has just released the first full trailer for Season 6, so it’ll have to suffice until the January 10 premiere. Picking up a few months after last year’s finale, the Gallaghers are preparing for another long Chicago winter, with prodigal dad Frank (William H. Macy) back home and in an unusually maudlin, huggy-kissy mood. Says daughter Fiona (Emmy Rossum), “I don’t know how much more of that I can take before I stab him in the neck with a broken beer bottle.” Spoken like a true Gallagher.
Along with Rossum and Macy — a two-time Emmy nominee for his role — the series stars Jeremy Allen White, Ethan Cutkosky, Shanola Hampton, Steve Howey, Emma Kenney and Cameron Monaghan. And Sherilyn Fenn and Will Sasso join this season as recurrings. Have a look at the trailer and tell us what you think.
