‘Shameless’ Season 8 Spoilers: Frank’s Ex-Girlfriend to Return?


Frank’s (William H. Macy) former love interest, Sheila Jackson (Joan Cusack), may return in one of the upcoming seasons of “Shameless.”

In a recent interview with Chicago Tribune, Cusack said she might soon be returning to the Showtime series. According to the actress, she would have time to take on more roles as soon as her youngest son graduates from high school. Cusack left the show in 2015 during its fifth season. She played Sheila, a love interest for Frank, and if the character does return in the series, it will be interesting to see if they will restart their romance.

“I do feel like being a mom is hard work. A lot of times you’re just making it up as you go along. You kind of look to other moms, and it’s kind of like a character you have to put on and get right and do stuff,” Cusack said during the Salt Lake Comic Con.
