Justin Chatwin Quits 'Shameless' After Three Seasons


The love interest to Emmy Rossum's Fiona will not return to the Showtime series for season 4 as producer John Wells reveals his fate.

Justin Chatwin is done being "Shameless". Producer John Wells announced at a TV Academy Emmy panel for the series on Tuesday night, June 4 in Los Angeles that the Canadian actor would not return for the fourth season. A representative for Showtime later confirms the news, adding that Chatwin may appear in "one or two episodes" next season.

Chatwin, who also appeared in the pilot and series finale of another Showtime series "Weeds", plays Steve, the love interest of Emmy Rossum's Fiona, on "Shameless" since the first season. He was last seen being taken on a boat by his secret wife's drug lord father and was presumed to be killed by the drug dealer's thug. According to a tweet by TV Guide's Rob Moynihan, "John Wells confirms Jimmy is dead."

"Shameless" season 4 is set to premiere sometime in early 2014. There's no word on how Jimmy's supposed death will affect Fiona.
