BURBANK, CA (September 23, 2013) - Join the outrageous Gallagher clan for another scandalous season of Shameless with Warner Bros. Home Entertainment's release of Shameless: The Complete Third Season, available on December 17, 2013. From Emmy(R)-winning executive producer John Wells (ER, The West Wing) and Warner Bros.

Season three of Shameless picks up 137 days since viewers last spent time with the Gallaghers. Fiona (series star Emmy Rossum) is scrounging for cash and finds herself in a succession of jobs, including club party promoter, grocery store cashier, and office worker. Lip is sentenced to community service after stealing a laser, while Ian struggles to prevent Mickey from marrying a woman his father is forcing him to wed. Jimmy contemplates returning to medical school; Veronica and Kevin are determined to have a baby; Carl becomes part of a scheme to cheat a children's foundation; and Frank, after partying harder than usual, wakes up in Mexico without the papers or cash to get back home. As if their daily struggles weren't enough, Fiona and her siblings have to deal with Child Protective Services threatening to take away the kids.
"Fans love Shameless for the superb acting, writing, and complex characters," said Rosemary Markson, WBHE Senior Vice President, TV and Special Interest Marketing. She added, "Season 3 gives these fans even more of what they love and we're thrilled to release it on Blu-ray and DVD. With six all new behind-the-scenes featurettes available on both formats, fans will get an even deeper look into the dysfunctional and captivating lives of the Gallaghers."
