Clip from 'Shameless' S9E8 – Oh Fiona, Get Your Act TOGETHER

The back-half of season 9 of SHOWTIME series Shameless is right around the corner, and things don't look for calm for Fiona Gallagher.

Emmy Rossum's character went through some crazy s**t during the front half of season 9, and she's obviously trying to deal with it as best she can, which honestly, isn't so great.

It was revealed last year that Rossum would be leaving the series at the completion of season 9, after fighting (and winning) a pay dispute where the actress and director sought salary equity with her co-star William H. Macy.

Season 9 also saw the departure of Cameron Monaghan, who played middle Gallagher son Ian.

While we're sad to see the two characters depart, how much more outrageous drama can the family go through before the series runs its course?

Shameless season 9.5 is set to air on SHOWTIME on Sunday, January 20th.
