Meanwhile, Lip (Jeremy Allen White) and Sierra (Ruby Modine) will decide to take things easy in season 8. In an interview with TV Guide, Modine said that her character will be busy with other things this installment. Instead of focusing on her relationship with Lip, Sierra’s storyline will mostly revolve on her personal matters, especially her son. She and the Gallagher kid, however, will remain friends.
“You’re going to be able to peek behind the curtain of what Sierra’s life is,” Modine teased. “She’s still working at Patsy’s [Diner] but there are other elements that are at play this coming season…[We’ll be] seeing the direction she’s choosing to go in to better her son’s life.”
Elsewhere, spoilers reveal that out of Frank’s children, Ian (Cameron Monaghan) will struggle the most following Monica’s (Chloe Webb) death. Although they had a lot of disagreements, Ian was actually very close to his mother. They could relate to each other well, considering they both have bipolar personalities.
“Shameless” season 8 is expected to air on Nov. 5 at 9 p.m. EDT on Showtime.
