Showtime Reveals Premiere Dates for 'Shameless' and 'Kidding'

Showtime has today announced the premiere dates for the upcoming ninth season of the original dramedy series Shameless as well as the series debut of the original comedy series Kidding.

Both shows will premiere on Sunday, September 9 - with the ninth season of Shameless at 9/8c. and the first season of Kidding at 10/9c.

Shameless stars William H. Macy, Emmy Rossum, Jeremy Allen White, Ethan Cutkosky, Shanola Hampton, Steve Howey, Emma Kenney, Cameron Monaghan and Christian Isaiah.

John Wells developed the series. He executive produces with Nancy M. Pimental and Sheila Callaghan. Warner Bros. Television and John Wells Productions produce.

In Kidding, Jeff (aka Mr. Pickles) is an icon of children's TV, a beacon of kindness and wisdom to America's impressionable young minds and the parents who grew up with him - who also anchors a multimillion-dollar branding empire. But when his family (his wife, two sons, sister and father) begins to implode, Jeff finds no fairy tale or fable or puppet will guide him through this crisis, which advances faster than his means to cope. The result: a kind man in a cruel world faces a slow leak of sanity as hilarious as it is heartbreaking.

The comedy stars Jim Carrey, Catherine Keener, Judy Greer, Justin Kirk and Frank Langella.

Dave Holstein created the comedy. He executive produces with Carrey, Jason Bateman, Jim Garavente, Raffi Adlan, Michael Aguilar and director Michel Gondry. Aggregate Films produces.
