Posted by at 11:24 am on August 24, 2018

Katey Sagal and Courteney Cox will join Shameless for its upcoming ninth season. Sagal is set to recur on the Showtime comedy as Ingrid Jones, a crazed psych patient that Frank (William H. Macy) encounters in the E.R., and with whom he is immediately smitten. Cox will guest star as Jen Wagner, a famous actress who’s had a problem in the past with booze. Lip (Jeremy Allen White) is hired as her sober companion when she’s in town, and she takes him on a wild ride in search of a cocktail.

Sagal received four Golden Globe nominations for her role as Peg Bundy on Fox’s Married With Children, before winning the Globe for best actress in a drama series for her performance as Gemma Teller Morrow on Sons of Anarchy. Her credits also include Futurama, Superior Donuts, Dirty Dancing, The Bastard Executioner, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Pitch Perfect 2, Bleed for This, Lost, Eli Stone, and Boston Legal.

Cox starred as Monica Geller on NBC’s Friends from 1994 to 2004. In 2010, she was nominated for a Golden Globe for her role as Jules Cobb on Cougar Town.

For its upcoming ninth season, Showtime has expanded Shameless to a 14-episode order that will air in two parts — this fall and in winter 2019. The first seven episodes will begin airing on Sunday, Sept. 9 at 9 p.m., with a midseason finale on Sunday, Oct. 21 at 9 p.m. The second half of season nine will premiere on Sunday, Jan. 20, 2019 at 9 p.m.
