Shameless season 9 spoilers: Ian’s movement gets destructive and more

Shameless season 8Want to know what lies ahead on Shameless season 9? Today, Showtime was kind enough to share some scoop on this subject!

As you may remember, the network has already put out a trailer that gave you a solid sense as to what’s coming up. Over the course of the upcoming episodes, you’ll see Fiona continue to try and climb the career ladder while Frank finds a way to get himself in even more trouble and Ian realizes more that being a publicly-revealed figure, especially one after an arrest, comes with some major consequences. Just because you’re either more well-known or more successful doesn’t mean you’re happy. As a matter of fact, sometimes it means the exact opposite. Many of these characters are moving on to some better things in their lives, but you have to wonder if it’s really all that positive.

The Shameless season 9 synopsis that CarterMatt has for you below offers up some more information in regards to what we want to see next:

Political fervor hits the South Side, and the Gallaghers take justice into their own hands. Frank sees financial opportunity in campaigning and decides to give voice to the underrepresented South Side working man. Fiona tries to build on her success with her apartment building and takes an expensive gamble hoping to catapult herself into the upper echelon. Lip distracts himself from the challenges of sobriety by taking in Eddie’s niece, Xan. Ian faces the consequences of his crimes as the Gay Jesus movement takes a destructive turn. Debbie fights for equal pay and combats harassment, and her efforts lead her to an unexpected realization. Carl sets his sights on West Point and prepares himself for cadet life. Liam must develop a new skillset to survive outside of his cushy private school walls. Kevin and V juggle the demands of raising the twins with running the Alibi as they attempt to transform the bar into a socially conscious business.

There is clearly going to be a lot of comedy in much of this, especially when it comes to Frank thinking that he can be influential when all he has really managed to do is wreck his own life. Meanwhile, it’s actually rather interesting to see a show like Shameless tackle some important issues like equal pay. They probably won’t focus on it in the most politically-correct way, but there could still be a good message at the end of it.
