The Gallaghers have yet another new face to contend with when Shameless returns for Season 10 this fall. Constance Zimmer will be joining the series for a recurring guest arc, TV Guide has learned, and will be a bit much for Debbie (Emma Kenney) to handle. Zimmer will play Claudia, a wealthy woman that Debbie encounters at a hotel bar. When Claudia makes a few assumptions about Debbie, it sends the new stand-in matriarch of the family into an existential crisis.
Season 10 of Shameless will be the first without series lead Emmy Rossum, who departed at the end of Season 9. However, it will see the return of both Ian (Cameron Monaghan) and Mickey (Noel Fisher), who will try and figure out how their relationship works within their prison confines. Lip (Jeremy Allen White) will be adjusting to being a new dad, while Liam (Christian Isaiah) fully embraces his black heritage. Frank (William H. Macy) has moved back into the Gallagher house and is just as useless as always.
The new episodes will see whether the clan can actually make something out of the 50 thousand dollars that Fiona left behind for them or whether it'll get squandered before they can get themselves out of poverty.
Deadline was the first to report the news.
Shameless Season 10 premieres Sunday, Nov. 10 on Showtime.
