Shameless is set in the south side of Chicago but where exactly are the houses that are used on the show? They are real places with real addresses!

While the majority of the show is filmed in LA, some exterior shots are still done in Chicago. Chicago is a very important element of Shameless. It’s the identity of Shameless. They return to the city at least twice a year for filming.

Here’s the real addresses of these houses. The cast does normally come to Chicago a few weeks each year to film.


1. Gallagher House 2119 South Homan Ave., Chicago, IL 

The famous Gallagher house is really right next door to Kevin and Veronica’s house.
