Shameless Season 4: Tease - Fiona is Shameless (VIDEO)
When Showtime’s Shameless returns on Jan. 13, the Gallaghers are back to their old ways: rebelling against school, employment and health care — as you’ll see in the following exclusive (and revealing) trailer for Season 4.
Fiona puts on some sexy boots and tosses aside her work with an angry yell, while recent high school grad Lip flips off higher education. And Frank, whom we last saw in a hospital bed, abandons his wheelchair. It all ends with the eldest Gallagher unzipping her top to expose a message.

Despite the assertion in the TVGuide mini-article (below) that season 4 finds Fiona Gallagher (Emmy Rossum) in a "desk job" with "life looking normal for her," the Shameless tease from Showtime hints that her life is anything but "normal," which means that though on the surface things may be looking up, there will still be plenty of angsty, frustrating, challenging and ultimately "character-building" (very funny) moments for the eldest Gallagher sib. And that's the way we like our Fiona best.
When Shameless returns to Showtime on Jan. 12, not only has Fiona (Emmy Rossum) settled in to her full-time sales job, but she's also now dating her boss, Mike. "Life is looking normal for her," says executive producer, Nancy Pimental.
But things won't stay settled for long. "Then we introduce Mike's brother," Pimental says. "He's a bad boy, the black sheep of the family. He really gets under Fiona's skin. Before you know it, she's hooking up with him."
