EXCLUSIVE: GLOW alum Shakira Barrera will recur in the final season of Shameless as Heidi, the series’ last recurring character.
Heidi is a recently released inmate who goes on a terrorizing crime spree when she hits the streets.
Starring William H. Macy, the 11th and final season of Shameless finds the Gallagher family and the South Side at a crossroads, with changes caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, gentrification and aging to reconcile. Jeremy Allen, Ethan Cutkosky, Cameron Monaghan, Noel Fisher, Steve Howey, Shanola Hampton, Christian Isaiah and Kate Miner also star.
Created by Paul Abbott, Shameless is produced by Bonanza Productions in association with John Wells Productions and Warner Bros. Television.
