In the past, new seasons have always been available on Netflix six months after they aired in the United States. Given that the final episode of ‘Shameless‘ Season 11 aired on April 11, 2021, it was no surprise to see the eleventh and final season of this Showtime classic premiere Monday, October 11, 2021, on Netflix. However, subscribers in the UK are still waiting for the final installment (Unless you have a VPN, in which case you can stream US Netflix in the U.K.).


The first season of Shameless aired on January 9, 2011 and continued to March of the same year. 140 episodes were broadcast throughout the series, which concluded on April 11, 2021.

The original British series ran from 2004 until it finally wrapped in 2013. That show spanned 139 episodes and launched the career of Hollywood A-lister James McAvoy. The British version also starred Maxine Peake (Peterloo) and Anne-Marie Duff (Sex Education).


The American version of the show ran for 11 seasons, all of which are now available to stream on Netflix. Each episode is around 45 minutes, giving you over 100 hours of Shameless binge viewing.

A spin-off entitled Shameless: Hall of Shame was also released, with six episodes. It's unclear if this will ever be available on Netflix.
