Shameless Season 11 Plot: What can it be About?

Season 10 sees Frank becoming aware of his mortality as Lip struggles to step up to the occasion and take charge of the family. As Tami gives birth to a baby boy, Lip and Tami decide to get together as a family, although Lip slips off his sobriety wagon temporarily. Things get twisted with Debbie and Carl, who get involved with the same underage girl. Debbie is on the run from the cops as she is charged with statutory rape. The season sees the long-awaited but dramatic wedding of Ian and Mickey.

In season 11, newly-weds Ian and Mickey will try to adjust to the long-term commitment, as we see the possibility of another wedding between Kev and V. But, Kev must first find his ex to get an official divorce, and there is a possibility of this fun storyline playing out. Debbie might come around to accept her individuality and the idea of being a single mother.

As a surprise to his family members and fans, Carl might surprisingly forge a career in law enforcement. As the series is coming to an end, the stories will wrap up, taking along the changes brought about by the Coronavirus pandemic, gentrification, and aging. This may mean that the Gallagher kids leave the nest one by one.
