According to Entertainment Weekly, Cox will play “a famous actress who hires fellow recovering alcoholic Lip to be her sober companion during her time in Chicago.”
Season 9 of Shameless is set to premiere Sept. 9 on Showtime, and will be the show’s longest season yet—including their 100th episode!
Sons of Anarchy‘s Katey Sagal will also recur in the show playing Ingrid, a crazed pysch patient who catches Frank’s (William H. Macy) eye.
