Cameron Monaghan Is Leaving ‘Shameless’ Midway Through Its Season

After only a month following Emmy Rossum’s announcement that she’s leaving Shameless, her costar is now following in her footsteps. 

Cameron Monaghan, who has played Ian Gallagher since the show debuted in 2011, is leaving the show midway through its ninth season. His final episode will air on Sunday, October 14. 

“All good things come to an end,” he wrote in a social media post. “An old cliche, but one that rings true with a sincerity and clarity especially in moments like these. Everything ends. The next episode will be my last.”

“I have known since last year, but I didn’t want to give it away too early as I wanted this season to be a surprise for the audience, allowing them to experience Ian’s unsure journey with his character,” he explained. “This role has been a joy to inhabit, a wild and special ride, and I’d like to thank #Shameless as well as you, the viewers, for being there with him.”

We’re gonna miss you, Ian.
