Trisha Faulkner

Have you managed to binge your way through Seasons 1-6 of Shameless on Netflix? Wondering when Season 7 will be added to Netflix? You aren't alone. Fortunately, What's On Netflix has a pretty accurate prediction regarding when the latest Season will be added.

With nearly 2 million viewers tuning in to watch every new episode of Season 7 as it aired on Showtime, it is no surprise that fans eagerly await the season to be added to Netflix. Fortunately, Netflix tends to be pretty consistent when it comes to releasing new seasons of a show.

The Season Finale of Season 7 aired on December 18 of last year on Showtime. While the series has just concluded Season 7, Shameless is a fairly new addition to Netflix. In fact, Seasons 1-6 were all added to the Netflix library in the last year. The first four seasons of Shameless were added to Netflix on July 1, 2016. Seasons 5 and 6 were added in September.

For Season 7 of Shameless, Showtime moved the series to a new timeslot. In previous years, Shameless would start airing in January and wrap up in April of the following year. For Season 7, however, the series started airing in October and wrapped up in December.

So, When Will Season 7 Be Added To Netflix?

What's On Netflix speculates the streaming giant will keep to their yearly release pattern. This, unfortunately, means fans are going to have to wait until September of this year for Season 7 of Shameless to be added to the Netflix library.

Typically, Netflix adds Showtime shows to their library just before the new season is set to air on the Netflix. It serves as a promotion for the new season. It also gives fans a chance to catch up on the series – or a chance to re-watch the previous season – before the new one airs.

For now, Shameless fans can enjoy the first six seasons on Netflix. It, however, appears as if they may be waiting a while for Season 7 to be added. Fans of the series have turned to social media to vent their frustrations regarding having to wait so long for Season 7 to be added.
