Emmy Rossum is chucking the deuces to "Shameless." The 31-year-old star says she will be leaving the Showtime series following its ninth season, set to debut on Sept. 9, 2018. The show follows Rossum's character Fiona as she tries to raise her young siblings in the absence of her alcoholic father. Fans love the feisty and free Fiona and say with her leaving the show is basically over after season nine. Other fans say it doesn't matter, the show must go on. Is it time for "Shameless" to end?

People reported on Rossum's departure. The actor announced via Facebook she would be leaving the show. But Rossum will be apart of the upcoming ninth season.

“Until ‘Shameless’ came into my life 8 years ago, I led that kind of transient wonderful life of an actor. And I never realized how much I actually craved the kind of continuity that this show has given me. And given all of us in the crew. Season after season I’m amazed that our same crew comes back. And it’s not just because it’s a wonderfully written, wonderfully layered show. There are these real connections, real friendships that bring us back season after season after season,” she added. “See, in real life, unlike Fiona, I’m an only child. I never had a big family. Being ensconced in that messy Gallagher family love is something I’d always dreamed of. But even off set, it feels real. We’ve watched the kids grow up into the strong, talented, independent human beings that they are.”
“I know you will continue on without me, for now,” she concluded. “There is much more Gallagher story to be told. I will always be rooting for my family. Try not to think of me as gone, just think of me as moving down the block.”

Some fans are completely over the series without Fiona. Even if the show continues after the ninth season, some say they aren't interested in watching the show die slowly.
