Shameless Season 9 now on Netflix – Picture: Showtime

We’re midway through September and we’re taking stock of the best new TV series to find their way onto Netflix in the United States over the past 7 days. 

If you’re looking for a movie, don’t miss our top new movie picks of the week too!

The US remake of the British comedy is still going strong over at Showtime and remains one of the few shows getting updates from the network on Netflix.

This season sees big changes for the show as Fiona (played by Emmy Rossum) departs the show after 9 years for pastures new.

Story-wise, you can expect Lip to continue his recovery while looking after an abandoned child, Frank attending rehab, Debby finding out equality doesn’t quite exist in the workplace and Carl returns to Military School.


I’m Sorry (Season 2)

Genre: Comedy
Director: Rachel Goldenberg
Cast: Andrea Savage, Tom Everett Scott, Olive Petrucci, Kathy Baker

Our second highlight was probably missed by most as it slipped onto Netflix quietly unannounced on Friday among the other big Friday additions.

The TruTV comedy series is about Andrea and her evergoing battle with simply being alive confronting an ungrateful daughter and her odd career.

If you like Workin’ Moms you should definitely give this show a shot.
