Shameless returned to Showtime for its ninth season in late 2018 and wrapped up in mid-2019. If you missed the show while it was on the air, have no fear as Netflix is going to be carrying the show. Here’s when season 9 of Shameless will be on Netflix in multiple regions. 

Every year, Shameless is one of our biggest tracked shows here at What’s on Netflix and it’s no surprise. The heavy-hitting drama-comedy is a fan-favorite for good reason. Its fantastic characters and crazy storylines surrounding the Gallagher family keep you glued from start to finish.

It’s one of Showtime’s best series at the moment with their other headline shows all now drawing to a close.

Season 9 started on Showtime on September 9th and airs every Sunday at 9 PM Eastern. Sadly, for those in other countries such as Netflix will be your only way of watching season 9 of Shameless but there’ll be quite a wait as we’ll discuss below.

As you may have heard, the show will be facing some major shakeups after season 9 as one of the shows main leads, Emmy Rossum is scheduled to depart. That’s on top of Ian leaving last season.

Frank is having a big season running for public office.

When will Season 9 be on Netflix US?

For those in the United States, you have the most options for watching the latest season of Shameless. Firstly, you can watch live on Showtime live. Showtime will then move the show onto its catchup platforms whether that’s through the Showtime addons for Hulu or Amazon.

We were expecting season 9 to release on Netflix in either July or August 2019 but that slipped. Season 9 of Shameless has now been confirmed to be on Netflix US on September 10th, 2019

Shameless Season 9 Netflix UK Release Date

The United Kingdom sadly is still two seasons behind with only seasons one to seven currently streaming.

Season 8 is confirmed to be on Netflix on September 1st, 2019 with season 9 naturally coming a year later in 2020. Sadly, this is the only way to watch Shameless in the United Kingdom with even the paid video-on-demand services also being several seasons behind.

Sometimes, Netflix does buy multiple seasons at once and hopefully, that’s going to be the case with Shameless.

When will Shameless season 9 be on Netflix in Australia and Canada?

For those in Australia and Canada, your wait will be the longest with new seasons coming between November and January. At the time of writing, season 8 of Shameless has yet to come to Australia. That means at the earliest you’ll be streaming season 9 in November 2019 and latest January 2020.

Looking forward to the next season of Shameless? Let us know down below.
