The stars of the Showtime drama “Shameless” have arrived in Chicago to film more scenes for Season 8. This is the second time the cast has been there this summer. They are expected to finish up within a week.
Emma Kenney, who plays teen mom Debbie Gallagher, posted a picture Sunday of her lunch at Public House in River North. She and co-star Ethan Cutkosky, a Chicago-area native, arrived by private plane Saturday at Chicago Executive Airport in Wheeling. William H. Macy, who plays patriarch Frank Gallagher, was photographed at O’Hare International Airport Sunday.
Jeremy Allen White (Lip Gallagher) has already been spotted by multiple fans this week. Kenney, Cutkosky and Sammi Hanratty were spied dining Monday at Nellcote in the West Loop. The cast typically films exterior shots in Chicago two weeks each season. They were here in late July and early August shooting scenes for Season 8.
The cast, which is reportedly staying at a hotel off Michigan Avenue, is expected to film at the Ashland CTA stop on the Green and Pink lines and Daley Plaza, among other spots, according to permit information posted in the city data portal.
Emmy Rossum who plays Fiona Gallagher has shared these images on Instagram this week. Who want’s breakfast?
