Emmy Rossum‘s return to Shameless was unfortunately nixed by the pandemic.
The Showtime series’ showrunner, John Wells, spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about what they had planned and how the pandemic ruined it all.

John said that not having her back was a big disappointment, calling it “a very minor but sad result of everything that’s happened in the pandemic.”
