Release date information for when Shameless season 5 will be on Netflix. Find out when fans can watch the Showtime series on Netflix.
Netflix delivered more Showtime shows to their inventory earlier this summer with the addition of Penny Dreadful and Shameless the two most noteworthy new releases.
Previously, we speculated about the potential release date for Penny Dreadful season 3 and when it will be on Netflix. Now, we’ll do the same for Shameless season 5 and project a release date for when it will be on Netflix.
Netflix released the first four seasons all at once and it could be a possibility that season 5 and season 6 are added at the same time considering Netflix is two seasons behind Showtime.
The season 7 premiere for Shameless will air on Showtime on Sunday, October 2 so we believe there will be at least one more season of Shameless added to Netflix before the season premiere date. We don’t want to be too greedy and expect season 5 and season 6, but other Showtime shows have had multiple seasons added at the same time, so it remains a possibility.
Update 8/26: Shameless season 5 and 6 come to Netflix on September 1.
We will know if it is part of the new releases for August in the next day or two, but August may be a bit optimistic. Mid-late September seems like the most optimistic and somewhat realistic to see season 5 and 6 added to get fans excited for the season 7 premiere.
If the seasons are not added before the October premiere, then fans of Shameless may have to be a bit more patient and wait until 2017 for more new episodes.
In any event, when we know more about Shameless 5 and 6 coming to Netflix, this post will be updated with the most current information so you can keep up with the Gallagher’s.
