SHOWTIME APRIL 2021 ORIGINALS
Series finale Sunday April 11 at 9 p.m. ET/PT
The final season of SHAMELESS finds the Gallagher family and the South Side at a crossroads, with changes caused by the COVID pandemic, gentrification and aging to reconcile. As Frank confronts his own mortality and family ties in his alcoholic and drug induced twilight years, Lip struggles with the prospect of becoming the family’s new patriarch. Newlyweds Ian and Mickey are figuring out the rules and responsibilities of being in a committed relationship while Deb embraces her individuality and single motherhood. Carl finds an unlikely new career in law enforcement and Kevin and V struggle to decide whether a hard life on the South Side is worth fighting for.
Season Premiere Sunday, April 18 at 10 p.m. ET/PT
COUPLES THERAPY follows eight months of therapy sessions with Dr. Orna Guralnik, who deftly guides couples through honest confrontations, revealing real-life struggles and extraordinary breakthroughs. Season 2 features three new couples who work through intense conflicts: a single mother’s unplanned pregnancy forces her to examine whether she wants to be with the father; a woman confronts her husband for failing to deliver the life she wants; and the raw trauma of near-fatal alcoholism reveals unexpected consequences for a young gay couple. The season also sheds light on COVID’s at-home confinement, which compels each couple – and Orna herself – to examine profound changes within their daily lives.
Season Finale Sunday, April 18 at 8 p.m. ET/PT
Known for delivering immersive reporting from the frontlines of global conflicts, civil uprisings and more, VICE returns with a new slate of groundbreaking stories from its team of global correspondents, taking on a range of issues from police brutality in Nigeria to the continued shockwaves of President Trump’s foreign policy in Iran and Yemen. And in the U.S., VICE continues its fearless exploration of the racial reckoning underway in the country.
CITY ON A HILL
Sundays at 10 p.m. ET/PT
Season 2 centers on a federal housing project in the Roxbury neighborhood of Boston that is plagued with drug violence and a rightful distrust in local law enforcement. As coalition leader Grace Campbell (Pernell Walker) works tirelessly on behalf of the community, her efforts are undermined by gang activity happening right under her nose. Enter irreverent FBI agent Jackie Rohr (Bacon), who is here to exploit Boston’s defective criminal justice system in a desperate attempt to salvage his own career. Unfortunately for Jackie, assistant district attorney Decourcy Ward (Hodge) is onto his adversary’s latest misstep. In time, the personal antagonism between these two escalates to an all-out war between the offices of the U.S. Attorney and the Suffolk DA. No one is safe from the collateral damage.

Sundays and Thursdays at 11 p.m. ET/PT
DESUS & MERO, the network’s first-ever late-night talk show, will continue to air weekly on Sunday and Thursday nights at 11 p.m. ET/PT from New York City.
