On the way from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment – December 29, 2015, to be exact – is Shameless: The Complete Fifth Season. All 12 fifth-season episodes of Showtime’s hit series will be available to own on Blu-ray and DVD. The Blu-ray edition includes UltraViolet digital copies of the episodes. In addition to the 12 episodes, the two-disc Blu-ray set and three-disc DVD set will include these bonus features: “Shameless (sex) love” featurette, ” “Gentrify This!!!” featurette, audio commentary (on episode seven), and deleted scenes.
Shameless, which premiered on Showtime in 2011, averaged 5.7 million viewers per week as reported by Nielsen. The series stars Oscar-nominated, Emmy-winning actor William H. Macy and Emmy Rossum “in a fiercely engaging and fearlessly twisted comedy about an irreverent, unconventional, working-class Chicago South Side family trying to scrape by.”
A synopsis straight from the Warner Bros. press materials: “In season five of Shameless, Fiona (Rossum) juggles a crush on her new boss (Dermot Mulroney) with a new husband (Steve Kazee) and the return of her old boyfriend (Justin Chatwin)! Frank (William H. Macy) balances his brand new liver against that old healthy appetite for liquor, drugs and trouble. Lip (Jeremy Allen White) heads home from college and struggles to hang with his old South Side friends. Debbie (Emma Kenney) has her first real boyfriend, Ian’s (Cameron Monaghan) dealing with real health issues, and Carl’s (Ethan Cutkosky) just dealing. Personal and urban renewal runs rampant as organic coffee shops and yoga studios invade the hood, and the Gallaghers stumble toward finding out who they really are and who to truly love.”
