‘Shameless’ Season 5: Dermot Mulroney Set to Woo Fiona

Crisis episode 12 & 13 This Wasn't Supposed To Happen/World's Best Dad (16)

Brace yourselves, Fiona and Steve fans– Jason Chatwin’s surprise return at the end of Shameless season four apparently does not mean we are in for a Steve/Fiona reunion (at least not right away). Showtime announced Dermot Mulroney (New Girl, Crisis) has been cast as Fiona’s season five love interest. Mulroney will play “ex-bad boy and recovering addict” Sean Pierce, the new manager of Patsy’s Pies where Fiona works. The recurring role is for a season long arc, so things could get serious between Fiona and Sean.

Shameless recently garnered three Emmy nominations for season four. Season five is set to air in 2015 on Showtime.
