If you haven't seen Shameless, you are seriously missing out. My roommates and I are completely and totally obsessed with the craziness that is the Gallagher family cause you legitimately never know what's going to happen!
And I definitely didn't see this coming either...
Emmy Rossum, who plays the lead character, Fiona, announced this afternoon that she will not be returning for season 10 of the show. In a statement made on her Facebook page, she stated
"I know you will continue on without me, for now. There is much more Gallagher story to be told. I will always be rooting for my family. Try not to think of me as gone, just think of me as moving down the block."
According to the showrunner, John Wells, they are in the process of writing a season 9 finale that will give her character a proper sendoff. But honestly, how can you write out the main character?! She's legit the most important person in this family...

Back in 2016, Emmy had "threatened" to leave the show if she didn't receive equal pay to the male lead, William H. Macy. Eventually, she did receive equal pay to the actor. Since then, I hadn't heard anything about her leaving the show and then BAM! She destroyed me and IDK if I'm gonna be able to watch the show anymore.
