Emmy Rossum Is Leaving 'Shameless' After Nine Seasons

In a near cryptic Instagram message, Emmy Rossum posted a photo showing the cast of Shameless and wrote the words, "It's a hard thing to put into words, feelings". I tirelessly prepped the audition with my coach Terry Knickerbocker.

"In season nine, Fiona has really become an entrepreneur", she said in the video, which ET exclusively debuted earlier this month.

But why is she leaving the show? "I think the show could quite honestly go on forever, because the family is dynamic and the kids grow up and they have their own story lines and they branch out and they are fully-realized actors and human beings and they have opinions. The way [show-runner] John Wells has shepherded me as an actress, and more recently how he's encouraged me wholeheartedly as a director and a writer, has been an honor and a privilege", she wrote.

She ended her note with: "I know you will continue on without me, for now".

Rossum played the oldest daughter Fiona Gallagher of a Chicago family. "Being ensconced in that messy Gallagher family love is something I'd always dreamed of", she said, adding that watching her co-stars - many of whom were children when the show began - grow up right before her very eyes has been an unexpected perk of being part of the show. "There is much more Gallagher story to be told", she concludes.

See how the show will say goodbye to Fiona when Shameless Season 9 premieres Sunday, Sept. 9 at 9/8c on Showtime. "She has been integral to the show's success, from her wonderful portrayal of Fiona to her leadership role on set, as well as directing multiple episodes of the series".

The New York born beauty married her beau, Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail, in May 2017 in an intimate ceremony at Central Synagogue in New York City. We are hard at work now creating a season nine finale for Shameless which we hope will provide a Gallagher-worthy sendoff for Fiona that honors the great work Emmy has done.

'I knew it the second I read the pilot script, this was different, this was special.' Emmy said of the show.

Katey Sagal of Sons of Anarchy fame will also be joining the series.

Rossum had previously threatened to leave Shameless in 2016 if she didn't receive pay equal to that of her costar William H. Macy.

According to the outlet, she will play 'a crazed pysch patient'.
