The cast of the Showtime series “Shameless” is scheduled to return to Chicago later this month to film more scenes for Season 8.
The stars are slated to be in town Oct. 16-20, according to the Chicago Film Office. The drama about the dysfunctional Gallagher family is set in Chicago, but mostly filmed in the Los Angeles area. The cast typically films exterior shots in Chicago for about two weeks each season.
Cast members filmed scenes for Season 8 in Chicago in early August. Emmy Rossum (who plays Fiona Gallagher) ordered cookies for eager fans during the August filming, but quickly ran out of the treats because so many people showed up to catch a glimpse of the stars. Season 8 of “Shameless” is scheduled to premiere Nov. 5.
