Noel Fisher is getting “Shameless” once again.
With news earlier this year that Cameron Monaghan would be coming back to the series in the role of Ian, some were left wondering what that meant for the character of Mickey Milkovich, who had reunited with Ian in prison last we saw the characters.
As it turns out, Ian and Mickey are returning together. On Thursday, the official “Shameless” Twitter account posted a video of Fisher, in the role of Mickey, recording a video in which he appeared to be digging himself out of prison.
Monaghan and co-star Shanola Hampton happily welcomed Fisher back into the “Shameless” fold as well.
Asked about the possibility of Fisher returning last month, series showrunner John Wells said it was a possibility, though they would have to figure out how to deal with Mickey having a much longer prison sentence than Ian.
“I don’t know, conjugal visits?” Wells said, laughing. “I don’t know, we really haven’t considered it. We love Noel and he’s such a wonderful actor and a pleasure to work with, so we’ll sit around and see what we can figure out.”
“Shameless” is expected to return for season 10 this fall.
