Why It Was "Impossible" for Emmy Rossum to Return for Shameless Series Finale

Shameless followers shared a great deal of thoughts about its series finale, consisting of wanting Emmy Rossum‘s personality Fiona had actually made a look for closure. Alas, it had not been in the cards.

During a meeting with The Hollywood Reporter released Monday, April 12, showrunner John Wells described that Emmy, that left the Showtime collection during the season 9 finale that broadcast in March 2019, had actually wished to return for the April 11 ending. But the logistics simply really did not exercise amid the pandemic, considered that the 34-year-old celebrity resides in New York City, while Shameless recorded in Los Angeles.

“We were trying to get Emmy — and Emmy wanted to come back,” John claimed. “We caught it at the wrong moment. We wanted her to return and had some storylines about her coming back, and she wanted to do it. Based on what was going on with the pandemic, when we were planning it — there have been so many surges, I can’t remember which one it was — but the quarantines went back into effect between New York and Los Angeles, and it was impossible to figure out how to get her back. “
