Shameless followers shared a whole lot of thoughts about its series finale, together with wishing Emmy Rossum‘s character Fiona had made an look for the sake of closure. Alas, it wasn’t within the playing cards.
Throughout a interview with The Hollywood Reporter revealed Monday, April 12, showrunner John Wells defined that Emmy, who exited the Showtime sequence during the season 9 finale that aired in March 2019, had hoped to return for the April 11 finale. However the logistics simply did not work out amid the pandemic, provided that the 34-year-old star lives in New York Metropolis, whereas Shameless filmed in Los Angeles.
“We had been attempting to get Emmy—and Emmy wished to come back again,” John stated. “We caught it on the incorrect second. We wished her to return and had some storylines about her coming again, and he or she wished to do it. Primarily based on what was happening with the pandemic, after we had been planning it—there have been so many surges, I can not bear in mind which one it was—however the quarantines went again into impact between New York and Los Angeles, and it was unimaginable to determine the best way to get her again.”
